Break Housing

The Office of Residence Life offers resident students the opportunity to live on campus during University breaks. Students in undergraduate housing must meet eligibility requirements to qualify for housing during these breaks and fill out a housing application for the specific break.  Students in undergraduate housing who apply for Winter and Spring Break housing will also be charged a weekly rate for housing during those breaks (weekly rates will be listed in below in the space with specifics on each break).

Students in graduate housing are able to remain on campus during Thanksgiving, Winter and Spring breaks at no additional charge as part of living in graduate housing.  

Summer housing 2022 will be located in one area on campus, which area will be determined at a future date.  Housing for all other breaks (Thanksgiving, Winter, Spring) will generally be available for students to stay in their Fall/Spring housing assignments during the break, though the University reserves the right to consolidate housing and require students to move to other areas during breaks as housing demand and other circumstances warrant.

Thanksgiving Break

Undergraduate housing closes for Thanksgiving Break on Tuesday, November 23, 2021 at 9:00pm and re-opens Sunday, November 28, 2021 at 9:00am. Thanksgiving Break housing will be available in all areas of campus housing. Due to the short length of Thanksgiving Break, there is no charge for Thanksgiving Break housing.
