Winter Break Housing

For detailed Winter Break Information, please see the Winter Break Newsletter.

Winter Break occurs from December 11th through January 10th. Students wishing to stay on campus during Winter Break must complete the Winter Break Housing Application. For those students not registered to stay over break, residence halls will close at 6pm on Thursday, December 11th and will reopen at 10am on Saturday, January 10th.

The following residence halls will be open for students during Winter Break; Babcock, Bissman, Bornhuetter, Kenarden and Luce. All other residence halls and all campus houses will be closed. Students who plan on staying on campus over break and currently live in a hall that will be closed will need to make arrangements to stay in an open building. It is recommended that students begin looking for a temporary housing location for Winter Break as soon as possible. Students who will be staying in temporary housing locations will need to have all residents of that room complete the Winter Break Temporary Housing Agreement Form.

Cost to Stay

Students wishing to stay on campus during Winter Break will be required to pay the following daily fees: $15/day for domestic students, $7/day for international students and those students who are working at least 20 hours/week at an on campus job. Students who are required to stay on campus for athletics will not be charged.

Deadline to Apply

The deadline to apply for Winter Break Housing is Monday, December 1st. Applications submitted after that date will be subject to a $25 late fee.

Checkout Process

Students must check out of their room before leaving campus for Winter Break. There are two options available:

  1. Students can complete the Express Checkout Form and turn it in to either their RA or the Residence Life Office.
  2. Students can have their RA check them out in person. Students who choose this option must set up their appointment at least 24 hours in advance of leaving campus.
