Spring Break 2020

All residence halls (Palmerton, Connolly, Peterson, Placer) close Saturday, March 7 at 12noon for Spring Break. Residence halls will reopen Sunday, March 15 at 8am. Rocker Square Apartments do not close.

Students who need to stay in the halls over break must complete the online Spring Break Housing Application by March 4, 8am (costs associated with staying over break). Please remember housing over break is not guaranteed until Residence Life confirms availability and acceptance of applications.

Spring Break Checklist

A checklist will be placed on all resident doors that outlines specific items that must be done before leaving for Spring Break.  Please refer to this checklist for specific items in your residence hall.  In general, all students must ensure the following is done before leaving for break: 
  • Close and lock all windows
  • Close drapes/blinds
  • Set thermostat to 60 degree and "auto" - or what is applicable to your building
  • Remove all perishable items
  • Remove all trash and clean room
  • Turn-off all lights
  • Lock doors

Note: Residence Life and Facilities staff enter all rooms over break for health/safety checks plus to perform preventative maintenance and to ensure all items on the checklist are completed. Fines will be issued for items not completed.
