How it works

We're glad you've chosen to live with us during spring break! Spring break is free of charge, but requires registration.

Step 1: Submit your online information form

If you would like to stay over the spring break, you will need to fill out an information form located in the housing portal. This must be filled out by 4 p.m. on March 10. 

Only students who have residence hall housing contracts are allowed to stay in their building/room over the break. You are not allowed to loan your keys out to other students or guests.

Step 2: Know your meal options

Only select dining locations will be open for service during spring break. You will be able to use your flex meal swipes as payment during spring break. Other forms of payment that will be accepted include Herky booster pack swipes, meal share swipes, Hawk dollars, U-bill and credit cards.

Step 3: Remember hall desk hours

The following residence hall desks will be open during break.

Open 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.: Petersen Residence Hall
