Winter Break Residence Requests

by John P. Kelliher

The Winter Holiday Break is soon approaching. This is a well-deserved break for all of our students who have been working so diligently this semester on their academics as well as the vast number of extracurricular projects in which they are involved.

On Saturday, December 18th, all residence halls will shut down at 4PM for the break and will not reopen until 2PM on Sunday, January 16th.

Please be advised that there are VERY LIMITED services available for Traditional Undergraduate Day students during this time. That means dining services will be closed and the residence halls will have no on-call or security staff. Because there are no support services available for these students, everyone living in the residence halls will be required to leave. There are only exceptions made for those students required to stay by faculty and/or staff members that must be here for University sanctioned events and full time/day undergraduate academic responsibilities.

Please remember that if you are requiring students to stay over this break, there are some steps that must be followed. Also, as the faculty/staff person requiring students to stay over this break, you will be responsible for providing an emergency contact number for these students while they are on campus since the residence halls will be officially closed.

I have worked with several other offices on campus to streamline the application process to eliminate some unnecessary steps for faculty and staff. If you require any of your students to remain on campus over the break, you are asked to reply to contact me as soon as possible. We have begun to utilize Google Docs for this process and will be able to offer you directions on how to request your students to remain on campus over the break.

All requests must be posted online by 4PM on Thursday, December 16th. Requests posted later than this date cannot be guaranteed approval.

Thank you for helping to make this process smoother for our students; and please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
