Break Housing

Residence Life

Although the residence halls officially close during Winter break students are able to stay on campus. Students living in other halls may be required to temporarily move during the break period. There is an additional charge for students who stay on campus during Winter break housing; 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. Hall residents will be able to stay in their assigned rooms during other break periods with no additional cost.
