2016-2017 Break Housing
There are a number of breaks within the Fall & Spring semesters when the residence halls close and students are expected to vacate them:
- Fall (closes Saturday, October 8th by Noon & opens on Tuesday, October 11th at Noon)
- Thanksgiving (closes Wednesday, November 23rd by Noon & opens Sunday, November 27th at Noon)
Some students are expected to remain on campus for University commitments, others live too far away to leave for shorter breaks, and unforeseen circumstances can arise.
Groups in need of break housing should have their advisor or professor send the list to email@example.com.
Individual students in need of break housing can find the application on their housing portal (instructions below).
