All traditional residence halls are closed during Winter Break (although students continuing in the spring are not required to move out their belongings), but are open for the Thanksgiving holiday and Spring Break. Please note that a separate Housing Agreement is required for the Winter Break & Summer Break (See the below sections for more details).
