Break Access Contracts

First-year students requiring the ability to stay on-campus during break periods (Thanksgiving, Semester Break, and Spring Break) should consider requesting a break access contract. Students selecting the break access contract have the ability to remain in their personal residence hall room during break periods. Students selecting a break access housing contract are charged an additional $300/semester which covers the cost of all breaks. This cost is for the privilege of remaining in their room over the break period and is not available to be refunded if the student does not stay for the entire break period.

Students who do not select the break housing contract are able to request a "walk in" break housing option and the cost of $14 a night. Housing accommodations for walk-in break housing are lounge-type settings with 6-10 individuals per room and a shared bath setting. There are very limited walk-in break housing options and available space is on a first-come, first-served basis. After all spaces are filled, students are referred to off-campus hotels for break accommodations. Students who think they will need break access housing are encouraged to request a break-access contract.

Returning students who require housing during the break periods should self-select University Apartments or 500 Wabash as these upper-class living options are open during break shut-down periods.
