Winter Break & Spring Break

2020-2021 Break Housing

Summer Housing at George Fox University

Due to recent spring semester scheduling changes, University Housing will remain open during the entire Spring 2021 semester.

All living areas are closed over winter and spring break. However, we recognize some students need housing accommodations during break closures. To meet this need, we offer break housing to students based on the criteria below:

  • Required sports programs
  • Home address is 200+ miles away
  • On or off-campus jobs requiring students to stay in town
  • Extenuating circumstances or illness

NOTE: Students who live in an on-campus house or apartment, do need to apply for break housing. This has changed from previous years.

Where are applications and when are they due?

You can fill out the "Break Housing Application" on the Housing and Community Life Portal for both Winter and Spring Break. Due dates for each type of break are as follows:

Winter Break: Friday, November 20th for Winter Break 2020.

Spring Break: Monday, March 8th for Spring Break 2021. 

When is break housing available?

Winter Break: Housing starts the Saturday after fall semester finals week and ends the day before spring semester begins. Please note that students cannot come and go from winter break housing. If a student returns home, they will not be able to return until spring semester check-in on January 17th.

Spring Break: Housing is available for the entire week of spring break. 

How much does it cost?

Winter Break:

  • $100/week (Please note that break housing cannot be prorated and is charged on a weekly basis.)
  • No charge for students required on-campus for athletic or academic programs (this does not include work-study positions)

Spring Break: 

  • $100 (Please note that break housing cannot be prorated and is charged for the entire week.)
  • No charge for students required on-campus for athletic or academic programs (this does not include work-study positions)

How do I pay?

Housing fees are typically due on the 1st of each month. Late payments will be subject to late fees and account holds. Please connect with Student Accounts about billing details.

How are students assigned to housing?

Winter Break: Students will be assigned to their fall housing location in most instances. Unfortunately, some housing locations will be unavailable due to maintenance updates. Students applying for Break Housing in these locations will be placed elsewhere, and will be notified ahead of time.

Spring Break: Students will be assigned to their spring housing location.
