Spring to Summer Transitions

Students planning on living on campus during summer should read the following instructions very carefully. Students should follow the prescribed check-out/check-in timelines as DU HRE is not able to provide storage for personal items.

Students will need to let Housing know of their intent to transition from Spring 2019 housing to Summer 2019 housing by June 3rd, 2019. Any notification of intent to transition to summer housing or canceling a transition plan after this date will result in a fee of $75. 

Students who currently have an "on-campus" university housing assignment for spring 2019, and have requested summer-long housing:

  • Will be able to remain in their spring housing assignment after the buildings close on June 14th, and MUST BE PRESENT to move-in to their summer room, which will occur on June 17th, 18th or 19th. This specific date will be communicated once the student receives the room assignment.
  • Students CANNOT BE PRESENT to move into their summer space must fully move-out of their room on June 14th at 9am, and may move-in any time after their assigned check-in date (informed via e-mail).

Students who do not have an "on campus" university housing assignment for spring 2019, and have requested summer-long or first-half of summer housing:

  • Can move-in to their summer room, starting on Friday, June 21st. This specific move-in information will be communicated to you once you receive your assignment by email.

Summer to Fall Transitions

Students with assignments for the Fall 2019 quarter, may remain on campus and pay the flat fall transition rate of $640.00. The Fall transition rate cannot be reduced to a fewer number of days, regardless of whether or not the student will be present for each day during the Fall transition period.

Students transitioning to their Fall assignment must do so on the days of August 20th and 21st. Students MUST BE PRESENT to move-in to their Fall assignment during this time. Information will be provided for the moving process.

Students without a Fall 2019 housing assignment, or not participating in Summer-Fall Transitions must move out on August 19th. Instructions will be emailed about the move out process, by August 1st.
