Housing During Breaks
The College offers housing to students during seasonal breaks in the fall, winter, spring, and summer.
Students can register for fall break housing through forms released on eRezLife. There is not an additional charge. For both breaks, there is a hot meal served in the dining hall on weekdays at lunchtime. At the same time, students are able to take grab-and-go meals for the following dinner and breakfast. Students stay in their own dorms during these breaks, unlike over winter break.
Rhoads serves as the winter break housing dorm. Any student on campus over the break will be assigned to stay in Rhoads. Since housing over the break is limited to Rhoads, members of the following groups are the only students who may request Winter Break housing:
- International Students
- Pre-Season Athletes: students do not need to apply; coaches will submit a form on behalf of their entire team. Athletes may reside at the College only during the time of their training.
- Students participating in special College-sponsored programs (e.g., Career & Civic Engagement sponsored programs that require in-person participation).
- Students with special circumstances requiring them to remain on campus during the break and who do not meet the requirements listed above must discuss their situation in advance with their dean and receive the dean's approval.
Current Rhoads residents eligible for Winter Break housing must also submit an application form, as their One Cards will not work during the break and must be assigned a key fob for access.
Winter Break Cost and Meals
Winter break housing is charged per week and billed to student accounts after the break.
Winter break housing includes housing and meals (breakfast and lunch on weekdays) when the College is open. Since the College is closed from Dec. 23-Jan. 2 and meals will not be provided during these dates, the cost for this period is reduced. All charges for winter break housing will be posted to student accounts after winter break. So, students are not asked to pay any money in advance in order to be able to stay. More specific information about meal hours, location, etc., will be provided to those approved for housing before winter break.
Students can register for spring break housing through forms released on eRezLife. There is not an additional charge. For both breaks, there is a hot meal served in the dining hall on weekdays at lunchtime. At the same time, students are able to take grab-and-go meals for the following dinner and breakfast. Students stay in their own dorms during these breaks, unlike over winter break.
