Semester Break Housing

Register for housing during semester break

Staying on campus during break is free of charge, but residents living in the residence halls and furnished apartments must register online if they intend to access their assigned space during any portion of the break period from Saturday, December 16 – January 3, 2024.

Residents of our unfurnished apartments (3rd & Union, Campus View, Tulip Tree, and University East) do not need to register.

Registering ensures residents will have proper access to their assigned space and communal areas of their residence hall during the break.

Residents may return to the reservation form as many times as necessary to make changes. Questions or concerns about break housing should be sent to

Residents that are staying are expected to comply with all university policies, and residence hall rules. Overnight guests are NOT allowed. To maintain the safety and security of residents and buildings, doors are NOT to be propped open for anyone for any reason.

Maintenance and Cleaning During Semester Break

Our maintenance and custodial (environmental operations) staff will be working in the residence halls and apartments during the break. Filters in heating units will be cleaned at Briscoe, McNutt, Foster, and Teter. Smoke detectors will be inspected in all rooms.

To prepare your room or apartment remove anything hanging on the heating unit and move items blocking direct access to the unit. There will need to be a clear path on the floor from the door to your heating unit.

If you will be present during the break period, please place the “I’m Here” card on your room door. The card is available from your center desk, and online.
