  • Over 1,100 residential students have opted to move out of their dorms as of March 24.
  • SVSU will not quote estimated refunds for Housing and Dining refunds. The following factors may influence your refund: student status, room style, meal activity, date of checkout and financial aid package.

  • Dining Services will only be open 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. and 5-8 p.m. daily.
