Winter Break 2019/20 Information 

Wallace, Wilson, Geoffroy, Buchanan, SUV and Frederiksen stay open during Winter break with staff here to assist residents. Exterior doors will be locked 24/7 during break.

All other residence halls are closed for Winter break. You will not be able to stay in or access these buildings during break. Buildings close at noon on Saturday, Dec. 21 (7 p.m. for graduating seniors). Buildings will re-open at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 9, 2020.

Pay attention to the email sent to you by your Hall Director/Apartment Community Manager and follow all break procedures. They help keep your room safe while you're gone!

When you leave, make sure your heat is on and set to the proper settings. Take out your trash, move items at least two feet away from your heater and lock your door. And, if you live in an area that's closed for break, remember to take what you'll need with you!
