Winter Break Housing

Available Dates

The Residence Halls close at Noon on Monday, November 30, 2020, and reopen for Spring Semester at 9:00 am on Wednesday, January 6, 2021. Housing is available during the Winter Break to residents living in the Residence Halls for Fall and/or Spring Semester. Residents need to request Winter Break housing three business days prior to the first date housing is needed. 

  • New students coming to campus for Spring Semester will not be able to submit a housing request for Winter Break Housing until November 1, 2020. Housing is available for new spring students starting December 26, 2020.
  • Fall residents not returning for Spring Semester may only stay until December 4, 2020.
  • Fall residents returning for Spring Semester may stay the whole break, stay just at the beginning of break, or return early for spring. All types of stays must be requested by submitting the Winter Break Housing Application. 
  • Fall residents requesting to extend their stay past November 30th or stay for the whole break must submit their Winter Break Housing Application by 5:00 pm on November 20, 2020, to avoid a $40 late arrangement fee and possibly being locked out after the halls close on November 30th. 

Pantzer Residents 

Pantzer Hall closes at Noon on Monday, November 30th. Due to the completion of the remodel project, residents assigned to Pantzer Hall will not be permitted to stay in their Pantzer room between Noon on November 30, 2020, and 9:00 am on January 6, 2021. Pantzer residents requiring housing during Winter Break will be reassigned to a temporary room in Jesse Hall. Residents do not have to remove all of their belongings from Pantzer and should take just the items needed for the dates Winter Break housing is requested. Make sure to take all items needed as residents will not be permitted access to Pantzer, including Pantzer storage, to retrieve items during Winter Break. New students for Spring Semester will not be able to move into Pantzer Hall until Wednesday, January 6, 2021.

Outdoor Access
