    To request to stay on campus during Thanksgiving, winter, and spring breaks, you need to fill out the extended stay request form. However, submitting a request does not guarantee approval. It is essential for students to have alternative living arrangements in case their request is not approved. The deadline for extended stay requests is one week before the scheduled closing date. If the Director of Housing and Residence Life approves your request, you must pay the required break housing fee at the Business Office (Jenkins Hall) before your stay. During the break, all students must adhere to the institution’s rules, the handbook guidelines, and housing policies. Please note, there will be no visitation allowed during the break for those approved to stay.
