The residential colleges will be closing for Spring Break on Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 9am. The colleges will reopen on Sunday, March 22, 2015 at 2pm.
Lee Clark, Regents and White are our three break facilities and will remain open for students needing housing during this time. Current residents of Lee Clark, Regents and White will be allowed to remain in their current room; however, residents must submit this form, notifying the Housing Office of their intentions of remaining on campus during the interim period.
Residents of non-break buildings (Elizabeth, Franklin, Hart, Hester, James H. Richmond and Springer) will be asked to relocate to a temporary assignment in another facility (most likely Old Richmond Hall). Residents of these colleges will not have access to their regularly assigned room during Spring Break. It is not necessary for residents to take all of their personal items with them to their temporary room; however, residents are encouraged to take everything they might need during the break (i.e. clothes, food, laptop, books, medicines, etc.).
Interim Housing Rate - $12 per night
Changes will NOT be accepted after Friday, March 13, 2015.
