Applications are now available for students wishing to stay on campus for the Intersession/Winter Break.  The only buildings open will be Centennial and Pinney Halls.  If you do not live in one of these halls, you must arrange to stay in someone's suite or apartment, and have the signatures of all students assigned to that suite/apartment giving you permission.  Applications are available at your Information Desks in your buildings, as well as on this website in the Forms section.

The cost to stay for Intersession/Winter Break is $245/week.  There are no "per day" rates.  You must be a student returning to campus for the spring (and currently living on campus) in order to stay on campus for winter break. 

If you are a student athlete who is here for break and scheduled games and practices, you must complete an application to stay on campus as well.  Please mark "Student Athlete" and your sport on the top of the form. 

Any questions?  Ask your RD or call the Housing Offices at 203-837-8531.

Closing for Winter BreakHappy holiday

The residence halls close for Intersession/Winter Break on Wednesday, December 17th at 8:00 pm.  However, students are required to leave as soon as their last final is completed.

Each hall has a particular check-out procedure in place.  Please look for signs and email that explain your hall's procedures.  Every student is required to check out for the semester

If you are remaining in your current assignment for the Spring semester, you may leave belongings in your room over the break.  We recommend that you do not leave anything of value - cash, jewelry, electronics, computers, etc.  All appliances must be unplugged.  Open or refrigerated foods must be removed.  Heat should remain on (on a low setting), and all windows must be closed, with blinds down and closed. 

If you are changing to a new room for the spring semester, or if you are not returning to on-campus housing, you must remove all your belongings from your current assignment when you leave at the end of the semester.  You must also formally check out of your room by signing your Room Inventory Form (RIF). 

If you have any questions related to checking out for the break, whether you are staying or moving or not returning, please speak to your RD or stop by the Housing Offices in Newbury Hall.
