Quarter Break Housing
Residence halls remain open during most breaks for those students who receive prior approval to stay on campus. Prior to the break, there will be signs placed in the halls to let you know of the hall closing procedures as well as emails sent to your Tech email address. Sign-ups for break will only be allowed during an advertised time frame. If you request to stay after this time has passed, you will incur a $100 late charge.
The following instances may be granted approval, provided that all necessary documentation is presented:
- Student employment on or off campus - You will need a memo on letterhead from your employer including your name and required work schedule
- International student or student whose home is outside of a 500 mile radius - You will need a copy of your BOSS screen with home address and a MapQuest map to your home address verifying distance.
- Educational requirements mandating that student remain on campus while the University is officially closed - You will need a memo on letterhead from your department head/advisor detailing circumstances requiring your stay. This memo should include your CWID number.
- Student athletic obligation - You will need a memo on letterhead from your athletic group including your name and CWID number detailing length of stay.
Any other requests may be directed to your hall's Coordinator during specified dates and times that will be advertised prior to the break. If you have any questions, please contact the Department of Residential Life at (318) 257-4917 or at email@example.com.
Your personal belongings remain in the room during the breaks and do not have to be moved out until either you check out of the residence hall or leave the campus for Summer break. If you live in one of the apartment complexes on campus, you do not need to get approval to stay during the break.
