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 breaks. Doors will lock at 6pm on Friday March 12, and your ID card will not provide access unless you request break housing. Check your Residence Life Handbook for details. 

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, March 11 at 8pm. Any changes after that must be sent to your Hall Director. If you need to cancel, complete the cancelation form

STAFF AVAILABILITY: During the break period, staffing and services (mail, custodial, hall office desk hours, etc.) will be limited. Please contact the Department of Residence Life at 701-231-7557 weekdays between 7:30am – 4pm with any questions you may have. In case of an emergency, contact Campus Police at 701-231-8998.  

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. "Six-to-six" access will be provided, meaning, those who request access for the night of March 12, for example, will have access from 6pm on March 12 until 6pm on March 13. 

GUESTS: Guest hours will be from 12:00pm (noon) to 10:00pm. No overnight guests will be allowed over break periods. All other hall rules will be in effect during break period.  

UNAUTHORIZED OCCUPANCY: Winter and summer break occupancy is only available to students who have a housing contract for the semester following the break. There will be a $25.00 fee assessed for unauthorized occupancy per incident.

DINING: Students who have signed up for break housing are welcome to visit the West Dining Center. Meal plans will be active. Visit www.ndsu.edu/dining/hours or use the Dining App to view break hours.
