Please note that while you have the option to select a preference, it is not guaranteed. Break housing is subject to availability. All break housing assignments will be made by Student Housing staff and will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis.

Break housing cancellations must be made in writing by sending an email to and must be received no later than Friday, March 6, 2020, at NOON. Cancellation requests received after the deadline will result in a charge for one night of break housing at the assigned rate.
