Break Stay Application

Planning to stay on campus over winter break 

The deadline to submit a Break Stay form is Wednesday, December 1 at 4 pm. Residents who fail to submit the form by Dec. 1 will no longer be eligible for break stay.
Break stay requests will be available in the student housing portal beginning October 15th.

Conditions of Break Stay include:

  • Break Stay Housing is not included in the cost of the Housing Agreement. There is an additional  cost based on the style of housing you live in. (Please see housing costs for break stay rates.)  
  • Only residents with housing accounts in good standing are eligible. Students with fall semester balances due are not eligible for Break Stay Housing. 
  • Residents eligible to request Break Stay Housing must complete the Break Stay Request form in the Housing Portal before 4 p.m. on Wednesday, December 1. After this date, residents are required to find alternate accommodations. 

NOTICE OF ENTRY: From December 10 - January 8 housekeeping and maintenance techs will be knocking on doors then entering rooms starting at 8 a.m. to clean (perform turnover) and/or complete repairs as needed. Because this transition occurs during a limited break/holiday period, we will not be able to postpone entry. Staff will be wearing appropriate ID and protective gear. We appreciate everyone's cooperation and support as we seek to prepare our residence halls for our returning residents and for new residents arriving for the spring semester.
