Quarter Breaks

SPRING BREAK

The period of residence between winter and spring quarters is covered by the housing contract, and students who wish to remain on campus are encouraged to do so. Although there is no additional fee, students may be required to submit a request to remain in residence during the break period. Please note that dining service in the dining halls is available during this time at an additional cost.

Spring Break Key Dates:

  • Friday, March 18, 2022 : Finals and winter quarter end. Winter meal plans end with dinner.
  • Saturday, March 19 – Saturday, March 26, 2022: Spring Break: Residences remain open. Dining hall access is available at an additional cost.

END OF THE ACADEMIC YEAR

All undergraduate residential facilities close at noon on Friday, June 10, 2022.

Beginning May 26, students who have a valid need to remain in residence the weekend following finals may request a late checkout through the Housing Portal. Whether you're working on campus, waiting to catch your international/out-of-state flight, or waiting to move to another university housing location for summer, you'll need to submit a request to stay in residence after the quarter ends. Requests are subject to the review and approval of the student’s residential community. Any student in a closed residential facility without an approved late checkout will be assessed a $100.00 unauthorized stay over fee, escorted off the premises, and may face conduct action. Dining service in the dining halls is available during the weekend following finals at an additional cost.

Note: Spring quarter residents who will be living in Transitional Housing/Summer Session Housing need to submit a late checkout in order to remain in their spring residence until they can move into their summer assignments on Tuesday, June 14.
