Break Closing

The residence halls at the University of Pikeville close each Thanksgiving, during winter break and spring break. During residence hall closures, all students (unless given prior permission from the Director of Residence Life) must vacate the residence halls and complete the following closing procedures:

  • Close blinds
  • Close and lock windows
  • Empty all trash
  • Lock bedroom AND suite door
  • Open, empty, and clean refrigerators (unplug and defrost personal refrigerators for winter break only)
  • Set air conditioner/heater to 68°F on HEAT and AUTO settings
  • Turn off all lights
  • Unplug all items
  • Wash any dirty dishes and laundry

Residence hall staff will be completing health and safety inspections of all rooms to ensure the above procedures are completed. All residents of the suite share responsibility for common area tasks.  Failure to complete the above procedures may result in an improper break check-out charge of $50.

Moving off Campus

At the end of each spring semester, the residence halls close for the summer. During this time, there are responsibilities each resident must complete in order to properly check out.  Please attend your floor meeting for more information.

End of Year Request to Stay: To request staying on campus beyond the move out date, please fill out this form.

Summer Housing

Summer housing is offered for students taking summer courses, involved in research or employed by the University of Pikeville. Meal plans are not available during the summer. However, when the cafeteria is open students can purchase meals at the register. Summer session details and costs are as follows:

May Term

May 4, 2020 – May 29, 2020


Summer I Session

June 8, 2020 – July 2, 2020


Summer II Session

July 7, 2020 – July 31, 2020


Summer Housing Application

Each year, the Office of Residence Life determines the location for summer student housing. If you are currently on campus for the Spring Term and plan to be living on campus for the May term, you can transition directly into your summer housing assignment. Likewise, if you are on campus for the Summer II Term and will be living on campus for the Fall Term, you may transition directly into your fall housing assignment when that time approaches.

The Director of Residence Life will contact you with a specific timeline for your move between spring, summer and fall assignments. As a resident, you must abide by this timeline. When possible, the Office of Residence Life will make every effort to assign summer housing to prevent multiple moves; however, this cannot be guaranteed.
