We look forward to another great year in ODU's residence halls. 

Students will not have access to the residence halls when the buildings are closed for breaks. Students must vacate the residence halls by the times specified for each break.  

Students who have a Saturday or weekend class that requires them to be on campus must notify the Residence Life Office for hall access at least 72 hours in advance.
