During Fall, Thanksgiving and Spring breaks, the College remains open and students may stay in the dorms. Students should be advised that many campus services are not operational during breaks.
Prior to the opening of the dorms in the fall for the academic year, students may return early for a fee if they submit the proper Early Return form to the Residential Life Office.
During Winter Break the dorms are closed. However, a limited number of students may remain on campus for a fee during this time. Students eligible to apply for Winter Break housing include:
- International students
- Any student requiring a room for the first Friday night only
- Students registered for a spring class at Penn
- Students participating in College sponsored programs/employment
- Students who have special permission from their dean
- Pre-season athletes
Summer housing is handled through the Conferences and Events Office.
