Safe Travels during fall break! We hope that you enjoy this time with family and friends.


NEED TO STAY ON CAMPUS FOR ALL BREAK PERIODS?

Certain buildings remain open during the break periods. Reach out to the Housing Assignment Office to discuss what space is available for a permanent room assignment change. This will allow you to stay in your room during the three closures. The total cost is $800.00 ($400 will be billed to your fall account and $400 will be billed to your spring account).  If the room you are currently assigned to is in a non-break building you will have to move now for the remainder of the academic year.

NEED TO STAY ON CAMPUS JUST FOR FALL BREAK?

Limited space for a temporary room assignment relocation is available for students who are not able to leave campus for fall break. You will move temporarily for the fall break (you can leave your items in your permanent room assignment, only taking what you need for the week to your temporary room assignment).
