All campus residences (halls, apartments, and The Commons) close for Spring Break Friday, March 8th at 6:00 p.m. and re-open Sunday, March 17th at 10:00 a.m.

Important to note:

  • Meal service ends on March 8 at 6 p.m. and begins with dinner on March 17 at 4:30 p.m.
  • Campus dining (Wertz dining hall, Jack's Place, and Cafe 1812) is closed during the entire break; in other words, there is no meal plan service during this time.

  • The Office of Public Safety is fully operational 24/7.

Closing Your Residence For Break

ALL RESIDENTS (halls, apartments, and Commons) are responsible for completing the following (however, the last resident to leave MUST confirm completion):

  • Store all open and perishable food in sealed plastic or metal containers.
  • Clean your residence and empty ALL trash in the residence and bathroom.
  • Unplug all electrical items except refrigerators and fish tanks. In other words, there should be nothing other than a refrigerator and fish tank plugged into any outlet in a residence. Power strips must also be unplugged from the wall outlets. The College does not take responsibility for plants or fish leftover any break.
  • Turn off all lights.
  • Close and lock all windows.
  • Pull the window shade(s) up/down halfway. (Apartments/Commons residents should pull 1st-floor shades all the way down.)
  • Lock your door. Be sure you have your ID and room key.
  • Move your vehicle to a student parking lot if you plan to leave it on campus during the break.

All housing will be inspected by staff for Fire, Health & Safety and/or proper closing procedures on Saturday, March 9th. Failure to follow closing procedures, including not registering for break housing, will result in a minimum $15.00 fine/resident.
