Break Housing Option  Student Housing provides a break housing option for students living in residence halls that are closed during academic breaks and who may not have a place to go or prefer to remain on or near campus. Additional fees will apply for break housing.

Student Housing will provide an off-campus option for Thanksgiving break. Break housing will be provided at the Hampton Inn West or Holiday Inn Express with single occupancy. This option includes all amenities offered by the hotel. Rate: $84.00 per night, charged to your student bursar account.

Students interested in break housing will need to submit a Break Housing Request in the Student Housing Portal by selecting Online Forms from the red menu bar, and then selecting Assignments Requests from the dropdown menu. Students can submit a Break Housing Request beginning Monday, November 1, 2021 at 9:00 am CT and all requests must be submitted by Monday, November 15, 2021 at 4:00 pm CT.

Break housing cancellations must be made in writing by sending an email to and must be received no later than Monday, November 15, 2021 at 4:00 pm CT. Cancellation requests received after the deadline will result in a charge for one night of break housing at the assigned rate.

Please note that while students may have the option to select a preference within the Break Housing Request, 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. 

If students do not have a safe place to go during break and are unable to afford the break housing rates, please contact UMatter: Student Support & Advocacy at (662) 915-7248 or
