EligibilityStudents who are eligible for break housing must have no record of serious conduct violations (alcohol or substance abuse, residence hall or conduct probation, vandalism, security or safety violations, etc.) within the past 2 semesters. Such violations will result in the immediate denial of your application, regardless of reason for applying. Students applying for break housing must meet one of the following qualifications:
Break Housing FeeThe cost to stay in the halls during break periods is $15 per day. This fee will appear as an early/break housing fee on your ebill. This fee will be applied from the first evening that the residence halls close through the first day that students are permitted to return to the residence halls. ANY application received after the deadline will be subject to an increased per day charge (see chart below). The FULL late fees will also apply to any student that would normally have the Break Housing Fee waived (including residents in houses/apartments as outlined above, out-of-state students, etc.) If a student is remaining on campus as part of a student group (and whose cost is being covered) submits a late application, the student will be responsible for any charge above the standard $15 per day charge.
PLEASE NOTE: If the student is on campus at the request of a department, the fee will be paid by the student or by the department. Students are encouraged to clarify the expectations for the Break Housing Fee payment prior to making a commitment to stay on campus when the residence halls are closed.
