Openings, Closings, and Breaks

Break Occupancy Requests

Residents (for Winter Break, a resident is a student who will retain the same room assignment during the Spring semester as they had at the end of the Fall semester) of Residence Halls that remain open during break periods may request approval to stay in their room or apartment, or that another student stay in their place using a Break Occupancy form.

You may not request that more than one student be approved to stay in your assigned space at the same time. You may not request that students of different genders be approved to stay in the same bedroom at the same time.

The Circle Apartments remain open year round. The Garden Apartments remain open for only breaks during the academic year. Terrace 03 and Boothroyd Hall remain open only during Thanksgiving and Spring breaks, and for the part of Winter break that the college remains open.
