Break Housing and Closing Information

Students are expected to know the hall closing and opening dates listed below and ensure their travels plans work within those parameters. Permission for late stays or early arrivals are only granted in extreme circumstances and may carry an additional fee.

Break Period Housing

Residence Halls are closed during Thanksgiving, winter and spring breaks. Students with extenuating circumstances can submit a request to the Director of Residence Life explaining why they need to stay on campus. Requests are evaluated on an individual basis. If you need to stay on campus for any portion of these breaks, please email the Director of Residence Life. Requests are due at minimum 14 days in advance of the break or as indicated in the closing information  sent to all residential students. All students approved to stay during a hall closing break will be required to consolidate into break housing in Rosenkrans Hall. Download the full schedule here.
