If you are leaving campus for break, a break checkout form must be completed in eRezLife prior to leaving. The form will be close on Tuesday, December 19, 2023 at 7:00 p.m. when the halls officially close.

For this break, all dorm-size refrigerators must be unplugged, thawed and propped open. All perishable food items must be taken home, donated to the food pantry, or thrown away prior to leaving. All full-size refrigerators in apartments/villages will stay plugged in. Any food in community refrigerators this is not labeled or appears old will be thrown away during break.

Food service will not be available. The cafeteria will close at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, December 19, and the Cardinal Club will close at 5:00 p.m. on the same date. The cafeteria will reopen on Sunday, January 7, for dinner.
