Break housing is defined as the availability of a living location during break periods when the residence halls are not open. As per your housing contract, the residence halls close at 7:00 pm, on Friday, December 19, 2014 and open again on Sunday, January 11, 2015, at noon.
Living on campus during semester break is not included in the 2014-15 Room and Meal Plan Contract, therefore there is an additional fee ($28.55 per night includes 2 meals the next day) to stay in the residence halls during these dates. A contract will need to be signed for each time period you are interested in staying. Break housing is always subject to availability.
- Late departure (staying Dec. 19 and 20) and early arrival (coming Jan. 9 and 10) are available to all students to stay in their room. Students need to sign-up in Campus Connection and must pay the nightly rate of $28.55.
- Brannon Hall residents are guaranteed to be able to stay in their own room for the entire break but still need to pay and sign up in Campus Connection for any night(s).
- For those students not living in Brannon Hall and wanting break housing, a limited amount of rooms are available from Sunday, Dec. 21 - Thursday, Jan. 8, in Brannon Hall. This housing is available on a first come, first served basis. Email email@example.com to sign up. You will receive an email if your semester break housing request is approved. At that time, you must sign up in Campus Connection/ApplyOnline.
