Moving & Breaks


Housing and Residential Life creates a staggered move-in schedule each year to ensure students can get move-in and established before the start of classes. Apartment contracts start on August 15, and the residence hall opening date is scheduled each year based on Welcome Week and the first day of school.

Winter Break

Centennial and 17th Avenue are the only residence halls that remain open over Winter Break. All of the other residence halls close, but our on-campus apartments remain open. 

Winter break housing for residence hall students is available for an additional fee of $35 per night, but students may be required to move to temporary spaces. Dining hall meal service ends with lunch on December 22, and the dining halls are not open over winter break.


The residence halls reopen at 8 am on January 15 for students returning from winter break. Students living in Centennial, 17th Avenue, or an on-campus apartment may return whenever they wish as the buildings will not close over winter break. The Dining Halls open with brunch on January 15. 

The residence halls and apartments remain open over Spring Break.



Summer housing options are available for students. You choose the exact dates you stay and pay a nightly rate. Summer assignments are based on room availability and the date applications are received.  Keeler Apartments contracts end on July 31 and residents will need to move out by 8 pm on July 31. Find move out instructions, checklists, tips on donating items to the ReUse Center, and more. 

Summer Options

Temporary housing is available to all newly admitted international students before the start of the fall semester. International Early Arrival Housing requests for domestic students are only approved for extenuating circumstances, and limited space is available.
