Winter Break 2017
Residential facilities are officially closed from Friday, December 15, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. until Sunday, January 14, 2018 at noon. Students who require break housing (i.e. student athletes and those with extenuating circumstances) must register online for break housing by Thursday, December 7, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. Click here for additional important information on winter break closing.
Break housing is available when residential facilities are closed for Thanksgiving and Spring Break for no additional fee with prior approval and registration.
Winter Break housing is available on a limited basis for an additional fee ($25/night). Students are expected to consolidate during Winter Break to one residence hall, house, or Small Living Unit and will not have access during the winter break to their fall/spring semester housing assignments.
There are no food services available during break periods. Additionally, no overnight guests or visitors are permitted during break periods and all University policies must be followed during break periods. Students who plan to remain on campus after the closing, during the break, or returning early from the break must register with the Residential Life Office. Any break charges are charged to the OWU student’s account.
Any student registering after the break registration deadline will be charged a $25 late fee, plus applicable per night charges. Any student remaining on campus, over any portion of the break, without prior approval and registration with the Residential Life Office will be assessed applicable fees, a failure to register charge of $50, and referred to Student Conduct.
