Breaks, Openings, and Closings

Although the Residential Facilities are closed during all breaks except for fall break, the College recognizes that there may be some students who require housing, request to stay late, or request to return home early during vacation periods (e.g., Thanksgiving, winter, spring, and Easter breaks). Examples of exceptions granted may include:

  • Athletic teams training within the NCAA regulations
  • Students employed on campus by an academic or administrative department
  • Students committed to student teaching, academic internships, academic reasons, etc.
  • International students
  • Students having to travel great distances to their home
  • Off-campus employment

The College will be officially closed between December 23 and January 2 and this no students will me permitted to stay in a residential facility during that time period. The only exception will be athletic teams training within the NCAA regulations.

Any Student who needs housing during a scheduled break must complete a written request in the Student Affairs Office at least one week prior to the beginning of the break. Students who do not obtain authorization but arrive early or stay late will be charged a daily fee and disciplinary action will be taken.
