Winter Break Housing

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, all halls will be open for Winter Break. Most residents will have no need to change rooms. (Please note, due to facilities repairs, some residents may be asked to change rooms.)

  • Double room: $28.00 per night 
  • Single room: $24.00 per night

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.

No refunds will be issued after December 11, 2020. If you cancel or adjust your occupancy agreement dates after December 11, 2020, you will be responsible for your original winter break charges and fees.

Thanksgiving and Spring Break Housing

Our halls and apartments are open during Thanksgiving and Spring Break. Many of our residents choose to travel during these times, but we welcome all to stay for free. 

No extra charge.

No application required.
