Winter Break 2018

All residence halls close Saturday, Dec. 8 at 12noon. Residents must vacate housing 24-hours after their final or by this date, whichever occurs first. Residence halls will reopen Tuesday, Jan. 1 at 12noon. Students who must stay over winter break will need to fill out a Winter Break request form on their MyHousing page by Dec. 3. Please remember housing over break is not guaranteed and there is an additional fee associated with winter housing break stays. 
Winter Break Checklist
A checklist will be placed on all resident doors that outlines specific items that must be done before leaving for Winter Break. Please refer to this checklist for specific items in our residence hall. In general, all students must ensure the following is done before leaving for break:
  • Remove all obstructions on/around the heater
  • Open any doors under the sink
  • Close all blinds and drapes and lock all windows
  • Set thermostat to approximately 66 degrees
  • Remove all perishable items from room
  • Remove all trash to proper receptacles
  • Unplug electrical appliances, except refrigerators
  • Turn off all lights
  • Lock your door
Note: Be advised that Housing and Residence Life, Custodial and Facilities staff will be making rounds within the residential rooms. This procedure is to ensure maximum safety and security during break. No one is looking for policy violations, however items in plain sight that are considered violations will be documented according to the university conduct process.
Residents Not Returning for Winter Quarter
Students not returning for Winter Quarter to their residence hall room must vacate their room by Saturday, Dec. 8 at noon. The student will need to sign up for a check out time at least 48 hours in advance of when they would like to leave. Students can begin to sign up now through their MyHousing page and select a check out time.
