Spring Break

Our residence halls will close for spring break at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 1 and reopen at 10 a.m. on Monday, April 10, 2023.

Residents (including those in the Apartments) who need to remain on campus for any portion of the break must fill out the Spring Break Housing application. Submit this form by 5 p.m. on March 30 or you will not have access to your residence hall during the break. 


  • Residents who 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 your account upon submission of the Spring Break Housing Application Form. This charge is nonrefundable even if your plans change and you do not remain on campus for the break.
  • Residents living in the Apartments Community are not billed for break housing but still need to fill out the application form. 
  • Binghamton Advantage Program (BAP) students are not billed for break housing – SUNY Broome classes are in session during Binghamton’s spring break.

If you're staying on campus, keep in mind:

  • No overnight guests are permitted in the buildings during the break
  • Services will be limited
  • 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 web page for more details. 
  • ITC/Campus Shuttle will be running. Please refer to the TAPS web page for more details. 
  • If leaving 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.
  • Keep your keys with you at all times! If 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.

Before leaving your residence hall, you must:

  • Unplug all electrical devices, except refrigerators.
  • Close and lock all windows and doors. CIW and Hinman residents — make sure to completely close both the interior and exterior windows.
  • Close and lower blinds three-quarters down.
  • Remove all perishable food and trash from your room and hall.
  • Remove all personal items from bathrooms. All suite bathrooms and corridor-style bathrooms will be cleaned over the break.
  • Please keep in mind that the heat will be substantially reduced. Plants/fish that may be negatively affected by the temperature change should be taken home.
  • If you have a Sabbath key, make sure to return it to your community office as instructed.

Note: Residential Life staff will be checking each room to see that safety and
maintenance conditions have been met.

If you plan to arrive before the halls re-open, you should arrange for a place to stay off campus until the halls open.
