Staying on Campus over Breaks

Beginning in Fall 2016, residence halls will only close over the Winter and Summer Breaks.  This policy change allows us to better meet the needs of our out-of-state and international students.  In recent years, Carolina Housing has remained open over Fall Break for all residents.  We are pleased to extend this policy to remain open over Thanksgiving Break and Spring Break. Ram Village apartments will remain open over the Winter Break as well and allows students to extend their lease over the summer for an additional fee.

Winter Break

If you know you will be on campus over the Winter Break, you might want to choose to live in Ram Village apartments as this is the only community open during this break.  If you don't live in Ram Village and you need local accommodations over Winter Break, you may apply for Break Housing.  This will require a move from your room to a designated lounge space to accommodate students needing break housing.  There is an additional fee to cover this accommodation.
