Information for those Not Returning to SU in the Spring
Any fall 2018 residential students that are not returning for the spring 2018 semester must officially withdrawal from Shenandoah University in Enrollment Management and Student Success. You can contact Elizabeth Kane at firstname.lastname@example.org to complete this withdrawal process.
Any fall 2018 residential students that are not returning for the spring 2019 semester must also contact Residence Life at email@example.com.
Fall 2018 residential students that are not returning must check out with their Resident Assistant before moving out of the residence hall to return room keys and sign the Room Condition Form. Failure to return a room key when moving out of the residence hall room will result in a $100 fee. Failure to sign your Room Condition Form forfeits your right to appeal any room fines.
Information for those whose Roommates are Not Returning in the Spring
Students that do not have a roommate when they leave for Winter Break must leave half of the room clear and ready for the new roommate. In January, new students will move in before returning students. New students must have access to one bed, one desk and chair, one dresser, one closet/wardrobe. Returning students will receive the new roommate’s name and contact information as soon as the new roommate has been assigned.
Returning residential students that do not hear from Residence Life over Winter Break in regards to a new roommate will go through the consolidation process upon their return in January.
