Residential Halls Closing Information

Posted on November 13th, 2012 by

The halls are closed during the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring Break periods. Students who are not able to leave campus for the breaks due to the distance to their homes (more than 350 miles) may be housed in the on-campus hostel with permission from the Residential Life Office. Students will need to apply to stay on campus during the breaks – the deadline for application to stay over Thanksgiving is Thursday, November 15.  Contact Residential Life for more information.

  • Halls re-open from Thanksgiving Recess at noon on Nov. 25 (Sun.)
  • Halls close for semester break at 9 a.m. on Dec. 21 ( Fri.)

    I need to know the dorm opening and closing schedule for Spring semester February and May so I can make flight arrangements.

    No problem! Thank you for consulting this schedule before going ahead with travel arrangements. Opening and closing information for the year for the residence halls is available on their calendar here: If your student would need to stay in the halls when they are normally closed, information about that process is at: Hope that is helpful.
