Halls Closed

The residence communities close for Thanksgiving, Winter and Spring Breaks.

Staying On Campus During Breaks

Students may stay on campus in their own rooms for Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring Breaks. Students should sign up at the front desk of their residence community to stay for Thanksgiving or Spring Break, and there is no additional charge to stay for these breaks. Students can sign up for Break housing in the Department of Residential Life office at 111 Carkoski Commons.   Dates for sign-up are usually 2-4 weeks prior to the beginning of break. 

Break Charges

There is no charge to stay on campus during Thanksgiving or Spring Breaks.  An additional fee is charged to Crawford, McElroy, Julia Sears, and Preska students who wish to stay over Winter Break.  The Winter Break fee has already been included in the Stadium Heights apartment rate, so there is no additional charge. 

If you have questions, please contact the Department of Residential Life, 111 Carkoski Commons, 507-389-1011, or
