Winter Break Housing: First-Year, Second-Year and Greek Students

Typically, the first-year and second-year residence halls and university-operated Greek houses are closed during winter break.  For Winter Break 2021, the Office of University Housing is offering a winter break housing option for first-year, second-year and Greek students returning for Spring 2022 who need housing for the entire winter break period (Thursday, December 16, 2021 - Thursday, January 6, 2022).

This housing option applies to any first or second year student living in upper-class housing (STJ Hall, The Village at 115 and The Triangle). 

Location - North Residential Village

  • Any north campus resident will be able to stay in their current housing assignment
  • South campus residents and Greek students will be assigned to open available rooms on north campus.

Please note:

  • A winter break maintenance project in the Mistletoe Residence Halls may impact the ability to remain in your Mistletoe Residence hall room.  If this is the case, we will assign you to temporary location based upon available space. 

Cost

Cost for winter break housing is $525 and will be billed directly to your Spring 2022 SIS account.

Check-In

North Campus Residents

  • Students staying in the same room will not need to check in.  Your access to your residence hall and room will continue.
  • Students relocating to a temporary room will need to check-in at the North Area Office in Wade Commons on either Wednesday, December 15 or Thursday, December 16.  All temporarily relocated students must check-in and move to their winter break assignment by Thursday, December 16 at 3 pm.

South Campus Residents

  • Students will need to check-in at the North Area Office in Wade Commons on either Wednesday, December 15 or Thursday, December 16.  All south campus residents and Greek students must check-in and move to their winter break assignment by Thursday, December 16 at 3 pm.

Check-Out

Students in the temporary north campus rooms will need to move back to their original housing assignment on Sunday, January 2 by 9 pm.  Please contact the RA on-call to check-out and return your room key card.  This will allow us to clean those rooms for spring residents.
