Winter Break Housing

If you are going home (or just leaving campus) for winter break you do not have to move out! Take what you need with you and leave the rest in your room. You will have the same room for spring unless you have made other arrangements with the central Residence Life office (MBS complex).

Resident halls close on Friday, December 20, 2013 at 12:00PM (Noon) and officially open Tuesday, January 14, 2014 at 8:00AM. Residents who stay after hall closing or return before halls open need to complete the winter break housing application. Students that apply for housing before 5:00PM Friday, October 25, 2013 will receive a $100 discount. Winter Break Application Download Here!

Meal Plans are not active and dining choices on campus are limited during the break please plan accordingly. Visit the Dining Services webpage ( for meal plan information. 

If you plan to leave your vehicle on campus over the holiday, be sure to relocate it to the Taku Lot, (located along Taku Drive near Farmers Loop Road) or your car will be towed for snow removal!
