There are a number of breaks within the Fall & Spring semesters when the residence halls close. During these breaks, students are not permitted to stay on-campus without written permission from the Residence Life Office.

- Thanksgiving Break (closes Wednesday, November 27st by Noon & opens Sunday, December 1st at Noon)

- Spring Break (closes Friday, March 13th by 8PM & opens Sunday, March 22nd at Noon)
- Easter Break (closes Holy Thursday, April 9th at Noon & opens Easter Monday, April 13th 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. These Individual students in need of break housing can find the application on their housing portal (instructions below).
Break applications appear on the housing portal approximately 3 weeks before the break begins. Residents will only be granted permission to stay on campus with legitimate reasons (distance, campus employment, etc.). Reasons will require verification. This form can be accessed through my.scranton.edu:
- Self Service
- Student Tab
- Student Services/Financial Aid
- Residence Life
- Housing Portal
Groups in need of break housing should have their advisor or professor send the list to firstname.lastname@example.org.
