Academic Breaks & Semester Closings 

More information on Academic Breaks  & Semester Closings

Spring Break 2020

Buildings close: 12:00pm on March 7

Buildings reopen: 12:00pm on March 15

For residents of buildings that close during breaks, Student Housing provides both an on-campus option and an off-campus option for break housing. Information will be sent to residents via Ole Miss Gmail. There is a break housing request form in the Student Housing Portal. 

  • On-Campus Option: Break housing will be provided in an empty single room or double room (with a roommate) within one of the contemporary halls that remain open for the break. Contemporary halls include an in-room bathroom but do not include linens. Rate: Double $26.77 per night and Single $32.22 per night
  • Off-Campus Option: Break housing will be provided at the Super 8 on Jackson Avenue with single occupancy or double occupancy (with a roommate). This option includes all the amenities offered by the hotel. Double $40.00 per night and Single $80.00 per night

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 housing@olemiss.edu 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.

Students needing break housing for two separate stays should submit a break housing request for each stay. Students interested in selecting a double room with a preferred roommate should email housing at housing@olemiss.edu

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