We offer housing on campus during the summer and winter breaks for current students. You will find information below on break housing and costs.

Winter 2023 Housing Information

Students walk down a snowy path on East Campus.

Winter Break Housing

We plan for all residence halls to be open for winter break with limited services. Students must complete a winter housing application to remain on campus for winter break. This will ensure proper ID card access to your building and allow the use of your meal plan. Please note that students living on South Campus and at the ICC will need to manage their own transportation to East Campus to access the dining hall.

Winter housing applications will be available starting November 7, 2022 on the Housing Portal, click "Housing Applications" and select "Winter 2023".

Winter Break Housing Rate

The cost to remain on campus for the entire winter break (December 24 - January 12) is $950.

All residence halls will be open with limited services. Students who only need housing for a portion of the break should note that within the winter application to have their room booking adjusted accordingly and be billed the prorated nightly rate. Students applying for winter break housing do not need to complete a late stay request.

  • Fall late stay will be allowed through December 24th at no additional cost, if students need housing past this point, they must apply for winter housing.
  • Spring early arrival will be allowed starting January 12th at no additional cost, if students need housing prior to this point, they must apply for winter housing.
