Housing

Academic Break Housing. Stay With Us.

Students have the option to stay on campus during break periods (Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, Spring Break, Summer Pre-Session, August Inter-Session). Break housing is available in Corbin-Olson. If you live in Corbin-Olson Halls, you have the option to stay in your room. If you live in another residence hall, you will be given a room in Olson Hall to stay in during the break period. Break period sign-up is first come, first served and has limited availability. If you wish to request a specific roommate, you will be able to provide the student's information on your request form. We will do our best to satisfy the request. The roommate requested must also sign up for Break Housing.
