Winter Break Housing (from December 17-January 13):  Break Housing is available only for students with approved needs to stay on campus during the break period. Requests will only be granted for extraordinary or school-related purposes. Requests must be received by 5:00pm on December 12th.

McShain Hall, Rashford Hall and Merion Gardens Apartments will remain open during the break for students needing to stay on campus. All approved students who do not currently live in one of these buildings will need to complete a Host Agreement and arrange to relocate to one of these aforementioned buildings. Because of security concerns, no exceptions will be made. Students are encouraged to seek out accommodations with friends who live in one of these buildings if they will need to consolidate.  It is the responsibility of the guest student to make arrangements to borrow keys from their host student. The Office of Residence Life will not distribute keys for break housing under any circumstances.
