Staying on Campus During Winter Break

Traditional residence halls (excluding South Hall) will close for Winter Break at 6:00pm on Friday, December 20th and will re-open at 1:00pm on Sunday, January 5th.  Winter Break Housing is available for those who need on-campus housing during this break for $25.00 per day.  Winter Break students may be assigned to double rooms with a roommate.
