Residence halls will close for fall break on Friday, October 13, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. and will reopen on Tuesday, October 17, 2023 at 12:00 p.m. All residents, unless approved by the Office of Residence Life, must be off campus by 7:00 p.m. on October 13, 2023.

Residents who are leaving campus for fall break are required to complete a break checkout form in eRezLife prior to leaving. The form will be open Monday, October 9. Each resident must fill out this form if leaving for break.

If a resident needs to remain on campus for fall break, they must contact the Office of Residence Life at reslife@smumn.edu to request the break housing form. The break housing form must be completed by 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 12, 2023 through this online form. If you do not register by 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 12, a $10 late fee will be added to your student account.

Each resident must fill out either a break checkout form or a break housing form. If a resident fails to complete a form a $35 fine may be placed on their student account.

Only those students who will be participating in SAINT MARY’S SPONSORED activities, traveling long distances of 8 hours or more or international students will be granted break housing unless specifically approved by the Office of Residence Life. A $35 per night fee may be added to a student account for remaining on campus for reasons other than those stated above.

Residence hall staff will check student rooms during break periods to ensure that no safety hazards exist. If a staff member should notice evidence of a violation of federal, state, or local laws, or a violation of university policies or procedures, the staff member can confiscate items in question and will file a report with the Office of Residence Life.
