Sign up for Easter Break Housing

Residence Halls will close at 10am on Thursday, April 13th for Easter
Break and will reopen on Monday, April 17th at 2pm
.  For those students who will not be leaving for Easter Break due to work obligations, athletic competitions, or the distance being too far, Boland, Xavier, Ora, and Turrell are available for break housing.

Students who need break housing must apply for break housing through the application in their housing profile which will be available March 20th – March 27th. If you do not live in Boland, Xavier, Turrell, or Ora, you must find a friend who will allow you to use their room during break.   Approvals for break housing will be sent via email by March 28th.

If you’re staying in a friend’s room for the break, it is your responsibility to get their key from them before they leave for break. Remember: break housing is a privilege and you are responsible for any damage or theft that occurs from your break housing room during the duration of your stay.

Please keep in mind that SHUFly Shuttle and SAFERide will not operate during break and that campus dining options will be limited. We will also experience a power plant shut down on Thursday, April 13th for most of the day so the campus residence halls will have no electricity besides emergency lighting.

If you are leaving for Easter break, please unplug everything, close your window shades, remember to pack everything you’ll need for the break (including medications and homework materials), and plan to be out of your room no later than 10am on Thursday, April 13th.  We look forward to welcoming you back to campus on Monday, April 17th at 2pm.

Wishing you a relaxing and safe Easter Break!
