As the warmer weather arrives, windows are opened and activities move outdoors, we ask you to remember the following:
- Please be mindful of your noise level and its impact on your neighbors, whether it be other Wesleyan students or members of the Middletown community.
- Screens should be in place when the windows are open to prevent unwanted intruders (bees, bats, etc.)
- Secure windows and doors when you are not at home to prevent unwanted entries and thefts.
- The only furniture which should be brought outside (which includes balconies and porches) is plastic outdoor furniture. Upholstered and wooden furniture pose fire hazards, and may become home to bugs and four legged creatures.
If your windows do not have working window stops, please submit a work order immediately to Physical Plant by calling (860) 685-3400. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
As you begin making your summer plans, please remember all residential units must be vacated and keys turned in by Saturday, May 14, 2011 at 12 p.m. (noon). Only graduating seniors and students who have been pre-approved by the Office of Residential Life can remain in their rooms after Saturday, May 14, 2011 at 12 p.m. (noon).
Students who fail to check out of their rooms will incur a late check-out fine of $250.00, and may also incur additional per diem charges until they vacate their rooms.
If you need housing beyond, Saturday, May 14, 2011 for one of the reasons below:

you need to apply for an extension through Residential Life. Extension applications are available at www.wesleyan.edu/reslife and are due on Friday, April 29, 2011 at 5 p.m. Please note that applying for an extension does not guarantee the application will be approved. Only extenuating circumstances will be considered and students will be notified via email the week of May 2, 2011.
Students who are approved to stay past 12:00 p.m. (noon) on May 14, 2011 may be required to move out of their spring housing assignment into a temporary location.

Graduating seniors are automatically approved to stay in their current housing assignment until 4:30 p.m. on Monday, May 23, 2011 and do not have to submit an application.
