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 application to the Residential Life Office. During Winter and Summer breaks, the dorms are closed to residential students. Please see the Vacation Closing and Summer Housing policies for more information.
