Winter Break Housing 2022

Eligibility: All students residing on campus for Fall 2022 and Spring 2023 are eligible for Winter Break Housing.

 The Winter Break Hall(s) will be Moore, Bartlett, Skarland and Cutler. McIntosh residents will be assigned a temporary space in MBS during Winter Break.

Cost: Winter break housing is a flat rate regardless of room type. 

Full break: (December 18, 2022-January 13, 2023) $650. There is a $100 discount for students registering for full break housing by November 1, 2022.

Half break: (December 18, 2022-December 30, 2022) or (December 31, 2022-January 13, 2022) $350.

Only current residents of the Cutler Apartment Complex will be permitted to remain in their own room during the break at no additional charge. Students living in Cutler, who are not staying for Spring 2023 semester, must move out by Sunday, December 18, 2022 by Noon.

Residents in Cutler will not be charged to stay over winter break but we ask them to still apply so we know they will be in the facility.

If you cancel your winter break housing after December 9, 2022, your room changes will be refunded but you will be charged a $150.00 cancellation fee. 

Winter Break Access
Any student without a winter break housing contract who accesses a building during the break period will be assessed, at minimum, the half break rate of $350 and up to the full break rate of $650. In addition, any student who accesses a hall without a winter break housing contract will be referred to the student conduct process.
