The residence halls close during the break periods and at the end of each semester. Students are expected to make plans in advance for other accommodations during the break periods. The dates of closure are published more than a year in advance and are outlined in the Housing and Dining Contract. Need for housing between semesters or other breaks are not means by which the university would cancel the Housing and Dining Contract. Local hotels usually offer special rates for students who are not able to leave during the break periods.
Residents of Bond hall may elect to remain in their rooms during the various breaks in the academic calendar when the remainder of the residence halls are closed. Residents must live in Bond to take advantage of this opportunity. Bond residents wishing to remain in their rooms during break must sign up in advance through the hall director. Please note that Bond Hall break housing carries an additional charge to room and board payments.
