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

The first-year and second-year residence halls and university-operated Greek houses are closed during winter break. This includes first and second-year students living in apartment-style housing (Triangle, STJ). For Winter Break 2023, the Office of University Housing is offering a winter break housing option for first-year, second-year, and Greek students returning for Spring 2024 who need housing for the entire winter break period (Thursday, December 21, 2023 - Thursday, January 11, 2024).


  • All campus residents who sign up will be able to stay in their current housing assignment


The cost for winter break housing is $525 and will be billed directly to your Spring 2024 SIS account.

How To Sign Up

Sign-up for Winter Break Housing will be in MyHousing in mid-November.  We will email everyone once the form is available. 

Winter Break Meal Plan 

During winter break, the dining halls are closed and most on-campus retail options are on a reduced schedule.  We are offering students the option to purchase a Winter Break Meal Plan through Plum Market, or can be used at on-campus food court locations when they are open. 

Winter Break Meal Plan:  (December 21, 2023 - January 14, 2024)

  • 5 meals/week + $150 CaseCash = $475.00
  • 7 meals/week + $100 CaseCash = $550.00

Charges will go directly to your Spring 2024 SIS account. 

Sign up when you complete your winter break housing sign-up form on MyHousing.  


Students can continue to use CaseCash at locations on and off campus.  Additional CaseCash can be added at any time.  Review how to add CaseCash to your account:
