Winter Break Stay Information

Fall semester ends 12/23.  UR anticipates that students will go home between the fall and spring semester.
For students who need or want to stay during the break period (12/23/16 – 1/14/17) the following residence halls remain open:

Susan B. Anthony, Riverview, Brooks Crossing, deKiewiet, Valentine, Maisonnettes

Residential Life does not broker break housing: you need to get permission from the resident of the room (and roommate, if applicable) and arrange to borrow their keys during the break.
Registration for break stay housing will begin via this webpage starting 11/28/16 and ending 12/16/16.  In order to get into the building via your ID card swipe, you must register for break housing.
Check this webpage again starting 11/28/16 in order to register your break stay housing needs and for additional information about break housing.

Important Notes:

If you live in one of these buildings, you will need to register to stay in your room.

If you don’t live in one of those buildings, find a friend who does and ask to stay in their room.

Only students with both fall and spring semester housing assignments are eligible for break housing.

There is no fee for break housing.  Break stay housing is limited to specific buildings, as noted.
