The College is not open during official vacation periods, this includes winter and summer breaks.
*The residence halls close and all students must vacate their rooms within 24 hours of their last final, or by 6:00 pm on the last day of finals. Seniors must vacate their rooms by 4:00 pm on commencement day.
The residence halls will be closed during winter break between semesters. No students will be allowed to live in the residence halls during this time. During Thanksgiving and Spring Breaks, students are strongly encouraged to go off campus. However, students might be allowed to stay in the halls under the discretion of the Director of Residential Life during Thanksgiving and Spring Breaks: In that event, they may be subject to additional charges and/or temporary room assignment. Students should apply for permission with the Office of Housing and Residential Life.
Please note that services such as Dining Services, Health Services, etc. are not available during these low occupancy periods. During the summer, students taking on-campus classes for credit may be allowed to stay in the residence halls, as long as they are not under judicial sanctions. There is a separate charge for summer housing. Please be advised that summer residents may be required to move to accommodate maintenance schedules or to allow for emergency work.
Students have long weekends only as scheduled and are expected to attend classes before and after vacations and holidays. Before you leave for any vacation periods, please make sure to unplug appliances and other major items (this includes unplugging and emptying your refrigerator), and empty any trash. Doing this helps decrease safety and health risks.
