Important Dates

Fall Semester 2020

Thanksgiving Break Week

The University is requiring any student who travels outside of Spokane County for the Thanksgiving Break to not return to campus for the remainder of the semester.  This decision supports our continued efforts to mitigate the risk associated with the spread of the COVID-19 virus and decreases the chance of needing to isolate or quarantine during the final, critical weeks of the semester. 

Residence Halls close 5pm, Wednesday November 25th. Access will be granted past November 25th only for students that submitted the Fall 2020 End of Semester Plans form stating they would be on campus until Christmas Break, or plan to Remain on Campus.

Closing for Christmas Break

Except for residents of Corkery, and  Kennedy who are in their 3rd year or 21 years of age, all residents must vacate their room by Saturday, December 19, at 10 am. If travel plans change due to flight delays or poor road conditions, residents should contact their RD or GRD to arrange a reasonable extension. After 10 am, access to residence buildings will be restricted until the spring semester opening on Sunday, January 17, 2021. Therefore, residents should to take everything they'll need during the Christmas break.
