At certain times during the year, there are scheduled breaks when most students go home or on vacation. The term “break housing” refers to limited housing availability at an additional charge during these break periods. These include:

  • Fall Break (typically in October)
  • Winter Break (from December-January)
  • Spring Break (typically in March/April)
  • Pre-Summer Break (between Spring Semester and Summer School)
  • Post-Summer Break (between Summer School and the Fall Semester)
Specific information about how to acquire break housing before and after the summer varies from year to year, depending on what halls are available and the length of time temporary housing is needed.
