Residence Hall Breaks

During the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays and Spring Break the residence halls on campus close, and we ask our students who live on campus to head home for those breaks. For each of these breaks we have a departure deadline: for the Thanksgiving break the deadline is the Tuesday before the holiday at 9:00 p.m. For Christmas/winter break we ask that all students depart within 24 hours of their last final exam or, at the latest, by the Thursday of finals week at 9:00 p.m. For Spring Break the halls close at 9 p.m. on Friday before the break. These dates are posted on our website at:http://maryvillecollege.edu/campus-life/reslife/dates/, and this also lists when the halls reopen after the breaks.

For each of these breaks, the Residence Life staff will be conducting their monthly Health and Safety Inspections at the deadline for the break. Students are asked to make sure all trash is removed from the room/suite/apartment, that all lights are off, that window blinds are raised, and that the room is locked behind the students when departing. Additionally, at the Christmas break, we ask that all appliances (except for College appliances) are unplugged from the outlets, and require students to return their room keys to the residence life staff in their residence hall. At Spring Break we ask students to remove their trash, open their blinds, turn off their lights, and lock their doors.

Finally, we realize that not all students can leave by the deadlines we have instated. For students who need to stay past the deadline, we ask that the student completes a break housing agreement request which can be found at this website:http://maryvillecollege.edu/campus-life/reslife/housing/, (it is the first link). For the Thanksgiving break, we ask that these be completed by the Wednesday the week before the holiday (8 days out). For the Christmas break, we ask these be completed the Friday of the last week of classes. For Spring Break, we ask that break forms be submitted by the Friday the week prior to their departure. Specific dates will be listed on the break form application site. Students may incur a $15/night charge for being allowed to stay on campus during break periods. Students should also be aware of the break policies listed on the break agreement as they are different than our standard policy because we have so few staff members available to assist students during the break period.
