Summer & Break Housing

Break Housing

Suites and Residence Halls (including Brandt) 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 400+ miles away
  • On or off-campus jobs requiring students to stay in town

NOTE: Students who live in an on-campus house or apartment, do not need to apply for break housing.  Houses and Apartments do not close over breaks. This application only applies to students in Suites and Residence Halls (including Brandt).

How do I apply?

Fill out the Break Housing application in the Housing and Community Life Portal. 

When is the application due?

Monday, December 3rd for Winter Break.  Monday, March 1st for Spring Break. 

When is break housing available?

Winter Break housing is available from December 15-January 13.  Spring Break housing is available from March 23-31.

Monthly housing fee will be due on the 1st of each month. Late payments will be subject to late fees and account holds. For your convenience, here are instructions for online payments.

How are students assigned to housing?

Students will be assigned to summer housing on a space available basis. Unfortunately, we are limited in our ability to consider living area preferences during this time. Assignments are based primarily on our need to facilitate summer checkouts and fall arrivals in early August.

Housing assignments for summer will be available when students check in. Because of the short turnaround time between spring semester and summer we are not able to provide this information until this time.

When will I be able to move into my summer housing?

Student will be able to move into their summer housing on Monday, May 6, starting around 4 p.m. Housing information and keys will be available for pick up at the Student Life Office from 4 to 7 p.m. that evening.

Students leaving for Juniors Abroad on or before May 6 and then returning for summer employment will move in after they return from their trip.


Where will I stay until summer housing is ready?

Students are able to stay in their spring semester housing through the afternoon of Monday, May 6. These students will still need to check out with their RA at the appropriate time, but will be able to stay in campus housing until summer housing is ready. Please consult with your RA/AC regarding details.

Student living off-campus for spring semester and then moving into campus housing will not be able to move in until Monday evening, May 6
