Christmas Break Housing

Christmas Housing Reservations

(December 16th - January 5th)

If you are needing to stay in University Housing during Christmas Break, we have you covered!

It is not required that you stay the entire break and you will be able to select the specific days you need to stay within the application. As there will be no late check-outs or early check-ins during Christmas break, any time past 10:00 am December 16th or before January 5th, will require a Christmas housing reservation.  For example, if you plan to stay the night of December 16th or January 6th, you still need to complete a housing reservation and make the daily payment of $25 for your stay. 

By following the steps below, it will ensure your room is reserved over Christmas break.
