Residence Halls close Sat. Dec. 19th at 5pm – Break Housing info

All residence halls (except Xavier, Turrell, and Ora Manor) will close at 5pm on Saturday, December 19th, 2009 for the Winter break and will reopen on Sunday, January 17th, 2010 at 2pm.

If you require housing for any part of Winter break, you need to complete the Break Housing Questionnaire located under Personal Preferences on your Housing Profile on PirateNet by Wednesday, December 16th, 2009. Please note: if you live in a building that will be closed during the break, you must find someone of your same gender in one of the open buildings who will let you stay in their room during the break. Remember the earlier you register for break housing, the easier it will be for you to find someone.

Filling out the Break Housing Questionnaire early and adhering to the following criteria will make your break housing experience much easier for you. Failure to do so may result in you being refused entry to your room during the break.

??? You must be the same gender as the resident you are attempting to stay with over break.

??? You may only have the number of people stay in a room over break as could live there during the year. (i.e. a double can only have 2 occupants, a triple can only have 3 occupants etc.)

??? Make sure to fill all fields in as requested. Leaving fields blank or filling out fields incorrectly may result in your application being denied.

??? Make sure that you get the key to the room you’ll be staying in ahead of time. The Hall staff will not be issuing keys to anyone who forgets to do this.

??? It is your responsibility to find someone who will let you use their room. If you are having difficulty, please speak with the RHD of the buildings that will remain open for further guidance. Register early if you need help finding a host.

??? The break housing questionnaire must be completed by Wednesday, December 16th, 2009. If you think there is a chance you might want to return early, make the appropriate arrangements and complete the questionnaire.

??? There is no additional charge for break housing.

??? For questions related to Break Housing, please contact any member of your residence hall staff.

The staff of HRL appreciates your cooperation with our break housing policies and wishes you the happiest of holiday seasons and all the best in 2010!
