RAs will put up late-stay doors signs toward the end of finals. While your One Card will continue to let you into your home building, you will not have access to other residence facilities.
Summer housing assignments will be announced after graduation. Every effort will be made to place you in or very close to your fall assignment IF your fall assignment is in one of the complexes used for summer.
If a student lives at Front, Clifton or Huntington AND they squatted their apartment AND they are staying for the summer, they may leave their large items in their apartment for the summer. They will need to pack up and move everything they’ll need for the summer, check out of their apartment and relinquish their key.
They will not have access to their apartment again until fall move-in day. Please note that should we need to utilize the Corner for overflow housing, student that already have furniture will be placed there.
On summer move-in day, summer workers will transition to their summer apartments. Your summer supervisor or internship site should be told NOW (by you) that you cannot work that day. Specific Instructions will be emailed after graduation. Additionally, on the spring-to-summer move-in day there will be a mandatory lunch at noon. Don't miss it. If you cannot be here for move-in day, you will likely have to completely check out of your current space before checking in to your next space.
Board contracts for summer workers expire after lunch on Wednesday, May 13. You will not be able to eat in the cafeteria after lunch on May 13 unless you pay cash. The cafeteria closes at 8:00 a.m. after breakfast on Saturday, May 16.
REMOVAL AND CLEANING
Extra trash bags may be found by the trash bins in the hallways. It is important that you help in keeping your hall/house/complex environments a clean and pleasant one as we close out the year. Trash should be placed in the designated dumpsters in your area of campus. If trash is left anywhere else,
fines will be assessed to the community. Please use the bags provided to make it easier on the cleaning staff to do their jobs. There will be dumpsters on campus for you to dispose of your trash bags and larger items. Any furniture, carpets, or wood will need to be taken to one of
these dumpsters and placed INSIDE.
Each Floor or complex will be held responsible for excessive trash or discarded room furnishings that are left in the common areas if the responsible individual(s) cannot be identified. The cost of removal/cleaning will be shared by all residents of that floor/community.
To prevent damage to floors, do NOT push or drag anything. Please lift with your knees and carry all items.
Your room must be CLEAN at the time of check-out! If you leave dirt, trash, furniture, etc. in your room or leave adhesive substances or markings on the walls, windows, ceilings, floors, doors or furniture you will be assessed a cleaning and/or removal fee. The fee will start at $75.00.
Students may not store their belongings on campus over the summer. Please check with off-campus friends or the internet for local storage facilities. Any belongings left behind will be discarded at your expense. The College does not assume responsibility
for personal belongings left in rooms, suites or apartments.
This year the Residence Life Office would like to help out the Conway community – and we need your help to do this. While you’re packing up your belongings and getting ready to leave, don’t throw away that old sweater! Don’t toss that blanket that won’t fit on your next bed! Don’t discard that partially
used bottle of shampoo! Donate them instead!
Boxes will be placed in the lobby of each residence hall and house to collect donations for various charitable organizations in Conway. Boxes will also be placed in the laundry rooms at Hendrix Corner and the Market Square complexes. (Clifton St., Front St. and Huntington residents may take their items to a donation box
in any residence hall. Please place gently used items in the boxes. Larger items may be placed beside the boxes with a sign on them that simply reads “Donation.” Some common items to donate:
- Clean clothing
- Non-perishable food
- Laundry supplies – even partially used containers
- Personal hygiene items and toiletries
- Clean Bedding
- Appliances including refrigerators and microwaves
Please only donate things in good or working condition. Please do not use the boxes as trash receptacles. Thank you, in advance, for your donations. We appreciate your efforts to assist our community.
Check-out schedules will be available on your RA's door, starting on April 29. All residents are responsible for arranging a specific check-out time at least 24 hours prior to the actual check-out (example: If you desire to checkout at 4:00 pm on Tuesday,
you will need to sign up no later than 4:00 pm on Monday). It is your responsibility to properly check-out of your room. Failure to check-out properly will result in a minimum $75.00 fine.
Check-outs will be conducted only after you have removed all of your belongings from your room, cleaned your room, and are actually ready
to depart. At your pre-appointed time, contact the Resident Assistant that you signed up with and let them know you are ready for your room inspection. If the Resident Assistant is not in their room at this time, they may simply be conducting someone else’s check-out and will be right back

Hendrix email account. All damage appeals must be submitted as outlined in your damage email and received by the deadline announced therein.
Please understand that the Resident Assistant is simply noting differences in the condition of the room. He or she is not making decisions on what charges (if any) will be posted or how much these charges will be. Billing decisions will be made by the full-time members of the Residence Life and
