*Indicates that Residential Facilities remain open while the College is on break.  Students wishing to remain in residence MUST register with Residence Life & Housing prior to the start of the scheduled break.  Campus offices/services (ex. Dining Services, Library, etc.) may limit both service provision and hours of operations.

Unless you have permission to remain in housing for certain approved reasons, you are expected to leave campus each semester no later than 24 hours after your last exam or by 12noon on the designated closing date for the residence halls, whichever comes first.
