If your plans for Spring 2017 do not include living on campus, it’s time to fill out a Housing License Release Request form. Please email the completed form to SHUHousing@shu.edu.
(This includes those students who wish to student abroad, take a leave of absence, withdraw from the University, or who wish to commute.)
If you are registered as a full-time student, housing and meal plan charges for next semester will be added to your student account the week following Thanksgiving break. If you do not wish to return to housing, please let us know so we won’t bill you for housing you do not wish to keep.
Just a reminder that spring registration is coming soon. According to the Housing License Agreement you agreed to when you applied to housing, you MUST be registered as a full-time student (12 or more credits unless graduating, student teaching, or participating in a clinical/internship) to reside in University housing. Failure to register for Spring by the end of the Fall semester will result in your housing assignment being cancelled AND given away to a new, registered, student.
The first step to registering is to take care of any holds you may have and to clear any balance on your student account. You’ll need to meet with your advisor for a PIN and then you can sign up for classes.
If you do not plan to return for the Spring semester, please complete the Release of Housing License Request form.
Stay tuned to your SHU email and PirateNet for more details on how and when to register for Spring 2017!
Twice in the fall semester and once in the spring semester, your RA will come around to your room and ask you to sign a large roster acknowledging that you are, indeed, living where our software says you’re supposed to be living. But why?
These rosters, called “Verifications” are crucial to assuring accurate billing of your student account. They also serve as a back-up roster to see if anyone has taken it upon themselves to switch rooms without permission. (Note: students who are found to have changed rooms without going through the proper HRL process will be held judicially responsible.) For safety’s sake, it’s so important that we know who’s supposed to be in which bed. If there were ever an emergency in your room, we’d need to know exactly who we’re looking for.
Sometimes there’s a bonus question on verifications. This time we’re asking if you plan to return to housing for the Spring 2017 semester. While your answer to this question isn’t contractual or binding for next semester, it helps us plan for how many vacant beds we can expect to offer to incoming transfers or January admitted students.
Thanks for signing verifications, and thanks to the RAs who get them completed in such a quick turnaround!
