Openings, Closings, and Breaks
All residence halls and on-campus apartments have break-housing available during Thanksgiving and Spring breaks. All residence halls except for the Circle and Garden Apartments are closed during Winter break, and offer break housing options after the college has reopened in January. Circle and Garden Apartments remain open during Winter break. All residence halls except for the Circle Apartments are closed during the Summer break. For information about submitting a request for break housing, please refer to our Break Occupancy Request page.
Approximately 1–2 weeks prior to each break, all on-campus residents will receive a Break Housing Notice that will detail the specific procedures and requirements for the upcoming break, including the deadline to register for break housing by filling out the online form located on the Break Occupancy Request page. During Winter break, if you live in a closed residence hall you must vacate your room for the duration of the break. To assist our residents with travel planning, the Residence Hall Opening and Closing Dates are published well in advance.
Students found in a closed Residence Hall and unapproved students found in an open Residence Hall or apartment after the published closing time are subject to immediate removal from the building, judicial action, and a $100.00 fine. Similarly, students who fail to check out of their rooms by the required check-out time are subject to judicial action and a $100.00 fine.
All rooms and apartments will be inspected by staff during breaks to ensure compliance with closing procedures, health and safety regulations, and Residential Life rules and regulations. Violators are subject to judicial action.
