May/Summer Closing

Prepare for Move-Out

Spring 2023 Residence Hall Closing & End-of-Year Procedures

Finals Week Quiet Hours

Continuous (24-hour) quiet hours begin at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, May 5 and continue until the hall closes on May 12. Please respect others’ needs to sleep and study. Failure to observe quiet hours may result in conduct referral or being required to check out early.

Residential halls close Friday, May 12 at 5pm. All students must check out of the hall by that time. Failure to do so will result in a charge of $25 per day for each additional day in the residence facility.  You are expected to properly check out and leave the building within 24 hours of your last final exam (unless specific college obligations require additional time, and you should share that information with Housing@NTCC.edu for approval).

  • Some students prefer to check out after classes end then commute during finals week. You may begin your checkout process with your Housing Staff/RA at any time if you want to move out early.
  • You are encouraged to schedule your final room inspection with the RAs in your hall’s office.  If you do not schedule a time, you will risk waiting until staff is available to conduct your final inspection. Please connect directly with your staff member, as you are responsible for meeting all closing procedures.
  • In addition to any damage assessments, a $50 fine will be assessed for improper check-out
