Break Housing Information

WHY DO I NEED TO REQUEST BREAK HOUSING? You must request break housing because the residence hall license agreement does not include housing during breaks.  

WHAT IF I'M AN ATHLETE? Athletes are responsible for checking with their coaches regarding break housing. All necessary requests should be turned in by the deadline.

CHANGES/CANCELATIONS: If you need to change your dates, please complete the form again. This form is only available until Thursday, November 18th at 9pm. Any changes after that must be sent to your Hall Director. If you need to cancel, complete the cancelation form

CARD & KEY ACCESS: Security doors will be locked at all times. Card access to the residence halls will be given to each student registered for break housing.
