Winter break housing information

Checking out

Students who are relocating into winter break housing must return their residence hall key to the Office of Residential Life no later than noon Dec. 11. 

Please make sure you have moved everything you will need for the break into your break housing. Your residence hall access will be turned off over break. 

You can plan to return to your normal housing the week of Jan. 4. Make sure to leave the break housing apartment in the same condition that it was in when you arrived. 

If you need to leave break housing early for any reason, call the CA on-duty at 309-716-5728 to check out.
