Break & Summer Housing

School Break Closures

The residence halls close for all students for the Thanksgiving, winter intersession, Easter, and spring breaks. See the schedule of closure dates. Students who need to stay during a break closure, stay beyond the date/time when the halls close, or return before the date/time that the halls reopen must obtain approval from the Office of Residence Life and pay a fee.
