Break-Period Housing

There are four breaks that fall within the academic calendar.

Thanksgiving Break

All student residences remain open for Thanksgiving Break.

Winter Break

Student residences close for Winter Break each year @ 12noon on the day after the official end of exams, and re-open two days prior to the official beginning of Winter Study, @ 8am.

Students whose home address is outside of the United States may request to remain on-campus during Winter Break, and those approved to do so consolidate into one building (currently Fayerweather is designated for this purpose).  The process for requesting & selecting Winter Break housing takes place during the fall semester, typically in November/December.

For athletic teams pre-approved for early return to campus during Winter Break, Athletics will send rosters of participating students to the Office of Student Life.

January “Dead Week”

All student residences remain open for January “Dead Week.”  However, students leaving campus housing at the end of Winter Study must be moved out of their rooms by 12noon on the day after the official end of Winter Study classes.  Additionally, students returning to the College for Spring Semester (from withdrawal, study-away, etc.) may not move into their Spring Semester room until 8am on the day before Spring Semester classes begin.

Spring Break
