Break and Holiday Housing Exceptions

Vacations and Breaks

For safety and security purposes, students must vacate the residence halls during Thanksgiving, winter and spring break.  Students with legitimate reasons may receive permission to remain in the halls with approval from the Director of Residence Life. 

During fall break, the residence halls and dining hall will remain open.

The dining hall will close for Thanksgiving, winter, and spring breaks.  The halls will close and lock down during winter break, effective 9 am the first Saturday of vacation, per the dates published by the college. 

Students are required to turn in their room keys prior to leaving for winter break.  Failure to turn in your key will result in a $125 charge. 

You will not be permitted in the hall until the official opening of the interterm session if you are taking an interterm course.  If you are not taking an interterm class you will move in prior to the start of the Spring semester.
