Student Announce September 21, 2022

Mini-Break Housing Information

The Office of Residential Services would like to remind students that the residence halls will not close for Mini-Break (October 1 to October 4). With that, students are permitted to remain in their housing assignments without applying for break housing. Regardless of if you plan to remain on campus during a portion of mini-break or if you plan to go home, we ask that you take a few minutes to fill out the following survey. This information will be used to get an understanding of how many students will be on campus and to determine how best to serve them.
