Fall 2016 Winter Closing Information

As you're preparing for exams, please keep in mind these Closing Notes.  Abiding by them will help keep you and your room safe for your return.

  1. If you will be here for any part of the break (12/16-1/8), please complete the Winter Break Stay Form, found here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QUWinterBreakStayRegistration.   If you do not complete this form, your card access will be cut off over the break.  Please complete the form by tomorrow (Friday), December 9th at 5pm.
  2. RAs will complete Health & Safety Inspections on December 17th to ensure that the following steps are completed.  Please complete these before departing:
    1. Take any valuables with you, and make sure to lock your door behind you. 
    2. If you have a fish, please take it with you.  They typically don't survive on their own :( 
    3. Unplug all devices (clocks, lamps, etc) and cut off all lights.
    4. Defrost your microfridge (prior to leaving) and leave it unplugged. 
    5. Throw away any perishable food items (milk, eggs, cheese, fruit, etc).
    6. Remove all trash from your room and put in the trash room.
  3. If you're staying for the break, please be aware that Campus Services will change the AC/Heat unit filters in all residence hall rooms over Winter Break.  In addition, there will be a power outage on December 21st that will directly impact Albright and Hayes from 7am-4pm.
  4. If you are leaving for Winter Break and not returning to Queens, we'll miss you L  As soon as possible, please let your RA know.  You have two checkout options:
    1. Regular - You'll need to schedule a time to have your RA check your room for damages.
    2. Express – Please click this link to complete the express form, found here: https://queens-yhcyj.formstack.com/forms/express_checkout
  5.   Failure to checkout of your room properly will result in a $100 fine, and failure to return your room key will result in a $100 fine.

Thank you for your attention, and remember that all students (unless signed up to stay) must leave the halls no later than Saturday, December 17th at 10am.  If there are any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Edward Young at younge@queens.edu. ​​​​
