Break Housing

With the exception of International House, all other residence halls are closed during winter and spring breaks. All dining commons are also closed during the breaks. Students living in International House who have a housing contract for the following quarter may apply to stay in their assignment during one or both breaks. Students not living in International House who wish to stay during a break and who have a housing contract for the next quarter may stay in International House, provided they have the permission of a student (and roommate(s), if applicable) to stay in their housing assignment during the break. Each International House resident may host a maximum of 1 guest; each guest will be provided with temporary building access and a room key for their host's housing assignment. Students not already living on-campus who will be returning are not eligible for break housing and may not move in until the residence halls re-open.

Please refer to the Important Dates page for break periods. 


The application will open several weeks prior to each break.
