Residence halls closing - spring 2015

 
All good things come to an end and that includes this spring semester. Spend a few minutes now to review the closing materials you've received from your CA (and are linked below). Check the bulletin boards in your hall and on your floor for additional materials. And, be sure to read the emails sent to you from your hall director and Residential Living staff regarding spring closing. If you have any questions, please contact the Residential Living Office or your hall director.

ALL HALLS CLOSE SATURDAY, MAY 16 AT 10 A.M.

Residents must vacate their rooms within 24 hours of their last final exam or by 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 16, whichever comes first.

 

If you are participating in commencement, contact your hall director to arrange for a later checkout time - you must preregister for a later checkout time not later than Thursday, May 14.

USE RECYCLING OPPORTUNITIES WHENEVER POSSIBLE

There are a variety of options available during move-out that we encourage you to use to help not only reduce waste disposal, but to encourage recycling of usable goods (including unopened food items).

  • In your hall, continue to use the recycling chutes for glass, paper and plastics
  • In your hall's front lobby, you'll find a box where you can place canned/dry food items, small appliances and lightly used clothing (these items will be distributed to the UWSP Cupboard, Goodwill and Salvation Army)
  • There will be recycling trucks at various locations around campus where you can take furniture, electronics and other larger recyclable items. Staff on the truck will tell you if they are able to accept your items or if they need to be taken to the dumpster Click here for more information
  • In each of the quads, you'll also find a large roll-off garbage bin where you can place large items that are no longer re-usable
  • Near your hall, you'll find a larger "roll-off" dumpster where you can place regular garbage
