Important Notice for Spring 2018: Due to summer operations and facilities work, many locations across campus cannot have spring residents residing in them after Wednesday, May 8 at 12 p.m. under any circumstances. If your spring location falls into these categories, you will be notified when your late departure request is approved and will be provided additional information about alternative housing during needed extension. No exceptions can be made for the requirement to move to alternative housing.

If you have any questions, please contact your Community Director or Housing & Residence Life at housing@american.edu or by calling (202) 885-3370.
