Break Housing

Residence Life

Although the residence halls officially close during Winter break students are able to stay on campus. There is an additional charge for students who stay on campus during Winter break housing (inclusive of Headwaters Complex and ResLife Apartments); these costs are not assessed to students who do not utilize the services. Only authorized individuals are allowed in the residence halls during breaks, therefore guests are not permitted as this is a service that we can provide to hall residents only. Students staying on campus for Winter Break may be required to temporarily move during the break period. 

Hall residents will be able to stay in their assigned rooms during other break periods (Thanksgiving and Spring breaks) with no additional cost.
