Spring Break 2021 Expectations for Students

While the majority of college services are not available over Spring Break, we recognize some students may have situations that require housing continue to be provided.  International students will be approved to stay due to potential travel complications.  If you have a reason to remain on campus over Spring Break please complete the Spring Break Housing 2021 Form to request an approval.  International students will be automatically approved provided they complete the form.

All of the Residence Halls and Townhouses will be available for Spring Break Housing. If you live in a different location Residential Life may work with you to be relocated somewhere else on campus for the break period.

Students requesting to stay on campus for Spring Break will need to remain on campus during the entire break period. Break Housing is not available if a student wishes to leave campus and return later in the break period. Break Housing is only available for students who will be living on campus for Spring Term.

Break housing will cost $35 / day to cover housing and meals. All students who remain on campus over the break period will have the meal plan.
