As the semester comes to a close, please review the housing calendar as you make travel plans.

Winter Break

At the end of the fall semester, students are expected to depart campus within 24 hours of their last final exam (unless approved for a late stay due to travel limitations). All residential buildings, including College-owned/operated off-campus apartments, close at noon on Tuesday, December 22.

Students who are not returning to campus for Spring 2016 (e.g. graduating, studying abroad) OR will be completing a room change, are to finish moving out of their current housing assignments and return room keys no later than December 22nd.

Winter Housing

Students who wish to reside on campus for any portion of the winter term (December 22 – January 22) must register for Winter Housing. A separate housing fee applies. Please see the Winter Housing webpage for further information.

The Office of Residence Life will send each student information about the above breaks and dates in the coming weeks. Information is also posted on our webpage, will be announced through the RA, and is available by contacting the Residence Life Office in Farinon Center.

Best wishes as you prepare to welcome your student back to your home from his/her Lafayette home!
