Residential Life Guide

Openings, Closings, and Breaks

*** For the 2014-2015 academic year, the Office of Residential will be piloting an expanded break housing program which will allow all on-campus residents to register to stay in their assigned room during Thanksgiving and Spring Break.

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. Boothroyd Hall, Eastman Hall, and Terrace 03 offer break housing for the part of Winter break that the college remains open. All residence halls except for the Circle Apartments are closed during the Summer break. 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 for residents of buildings with break housing options to register by filling out 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.
