Note:  Only those students that have requested and received permission to be on campus will have access to their residential community.

IMPORTANT:  Any student remaining on campus over any portion of the spring break without prior approval by the Residential Life Office will be referred to the student conduct process.

Safety inspections will be conducted in rooms and suites after students leave.  This process helps to ensure room windows are closed, there are no fire hazards present, and all doors are locked and secured.  While the purpose of these inspections is not to search for policy violations, we are obligated to report any and all violations we see in the course of our safety inspection (i.e. empty alcohol containers, candles, theft of University property, etc.).  Note that we will not look in drawers or closets; however, we will take note of any concerns in "plain view".  Take this opportunity to take prohibited items home with you.


Mail will not be forwarded during break.  If you are expecting an important piece of mail that needs to be forwarded, contact the mail room before you leave.  Newspapers will not be held.


All dining facilities will close for break at 8:00pm on Friday, March 8, 2024.  Limited dining will be available at an additional cost to students. Students can choose to eat meals on campus, but are not required to do so.  Lunch and dinner are offered at $24.50/per day, and students can opt in to those and are billed for them before the break period begins.  Any unused meals over the break period cannot be used at any other time and no money will be reimbursed for unused break meals.  You will be billed for any days you select on the break housing registration form and changes will not be able to be made after you submit your break housing registration.  The deadline for meal registration Wednesday, March 6 at 5pm.  Meals over breaks can only be offered if 50 or more people participate.  We will notify students if we are not offering meals.
