Can I stay in my room?

Students living in Wallace Residence Center, Theophilus Tower and McConnell must leave their rooms for winter break. Please contact the Housing office with any questions about winter break leave.

Students living in any of the Living Learning Communities (LLCs) are allowed to stay in their rooms during the entire winter break, as this is included in the LLC resident contract and cost.

All students planning to return to the residence halls for spring semester may leave their belongings in their rooms during break, but should take any important items with them (ex: medications, passports, computers, school work, etc.) as students will not be allowed back into the buildings during winter break.

Note: During winter break, Housing & Residence Life will be conducting Health and Safety checks in room to monitor any safety concerns such as ensuring smoke detectors working and not being covered.

What if I need a place to stay during winter break?

If you need a place to stay during winter break, please visit the Housing Office on the second floor of Wallace for more information. There is a cost associated with winter break housing. 

What if I am not returning in the spring?

If you are not planning to return to the university or residence halls for the spring semester, you will need to complete checkout paperwork at the Housing office prior to leaving for winter break. If you may possibly fall into the Regulation L category (by receiving below a 1.0 GPA), please visit the Housing Office prior to leaving for winter break.

Does my dining plan work during break?

No. Students who live in our campus LLCs during winter break are responsible for providing their own food.
