Spring Break

Our residence halls will close for Spring Break at 10 A.M. Saturday, March 2 and reopen at 9 A.M. on Sunday, March 10, 2024.

Students (including those in the Apartments) who need to remain on campus for any portion of the Spring Break must apply to do so by submitting the Spring Break Housing application.  Students who do not submit this form by the 5 P.M. February 29 deadline will not have access to their residence hall during the break. 


  • Students wishing to remain on campus for any portion of the break will be billed for the entire break ($224). Break housing is not offered on a daily basis.
  • The break housing charge will be billed to the student’s account upon submission of the Spring Break Housing Application Form. This charge is nonrefundable even if plans change and the student does not remain on campus for the break.
  • Students living in the Apartments are not billed for break housing as apartment living encompasses break housing. Students living in the apartments still need to sign up for break housing via the application form. 

Students opting to remain on campus during Spring Break should keep the following important information in mind:

  • No overnight guests are permitted in the buildings during the break.

  • Services will be limited.

  • Facilities Management may need to enter your living area to conduct maintenance work. If this is the case, Residential Life will notify you about this expected entry.

  • There will be limited service in the MarketPlace. When the MarketPlace is not open (weekend service and dinners), meals may be ordered via the EVERYDAY APP. Please refer to the Dining Services webpage for more details. 

  • ITC/Campus Shuttle will be running. Please refer to the TAPS webpage for more details. 

  • If you leave a vehicle on campus, you must park in Lot G1, M1 or ZZ North or South for snow removal purposes. Find a parking map here.

  • Make every effort to keep your keys with you at all times! If you are locked out of your room, the response time to key you in could be lengthy. 

Maintain University Housing Agreement

During this break housing period, the University Housing Agreement and the Code of Student Conduct are still in effect. In addition, you must comply with the directives below. Break housing is a privilege, and you are expected to conduct yourself in a manner appropriate to a community living environment. Any alleged violations will result in immediate removal from break housing pending any student conduct or administrative follow-up action.

  • Students who have not been approved to be on campus during the break may not enter the residence halls/Apartments.  
  • You may not allow anyone to “tailgate” (not using their card access) into the building.
  • Keep your room and suite/flat/apartment door locked at all times.
  • Suite bathrooms will be cleaned over break. Please remove all personal belongings from the bathroom.
