If you are leaving campus for winter break, and returning to on campus housing in the spring 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 Residence Life office in the MBS complex.
Residence halls close on Friday, December 20, 2015 at 12:00PM (Noon) and officially re-open Tuesday, January 12, 2016 at 8:00AM.
