Break Housing and Closing Information

Students are expected to know the hall closing and opening dates listed below and ensure their travels plans work within those parameters. Permission for late stays or early arrivals are only granted in extreme circumstances and may carry an additional fee.

 

Break Period Housing

Residence Halls are closed during Thanksgiving, Winter and Spring breaks. Students with extenuating circumstances can submit a request to the Director of Residence Life explaining why they need to stay on campus. Requests are evaluated on an individual basis. If you need to stay on campus for any portion of these breaks, please email the Director of Residence Life. Requests are due at minimum 14 days in advance of the break or as indicated in the closing information sent to all residential students. Students approved to stay during a hall closing break may be required to consolidate into break housing.

December (Winter Break) Closing Information

All academic year housing closes at 9:00am on Saturday, December 15, 2018. All residents not approved for Winter Break housing must complete a checkout by 9am on December 15th. Please make sure your travel plans coincide with this deadline. Residents must sign up with an RA for a checkout at least 48 hours in advance of their intended departure time. If the student is registered for spring 2019 classes, they may leave their belongings in their room in accordance with break closing expectations. Students with approved spring semester room changes or room vacancies must follow the DRL instructions regarding room prep. Keys must be turned in at the time of checkout. Failure to sign-up 48 hours in advance, missing a checkout appointment, or failure to vacate residence halls by 10am will result in a $50 improper checkout charge. Failure to return room keys will result in a lock change charge ($60 plus $5 per key). All students are responsible for reading and following the closing instructions.

January Term Housing

Students taking classes during January Term may request January Term Housing. Typically J-Term housing is consolidated into a single hall community; at this time, J-Term residents will likely remain in their academic year rooms. Students needing January Term Housing must email Residence Life at reslife@wilson.edu or Jared Hirtz at jared.hirtz@wilson.edu. January Term housing carries a separate housing fee which is applied directly to the student's account. There is no meal plan during January Term.

May Closing Information

All academic year housing closes at 9:00am on Monday, May 21, 2019. All residents not approved for Summer I Housing must complete a checkout by 9am on May 21st. Please make sure your travel plans coincide with this deadline. Residents must sign up with an RA for a checkout at least 48 hours in advance of their intended departure time. All personal belongings, including trash, must be removed from the room and public spaces by the time of checkout. Keys must be turned in at the time of checkout. Failure to sign-up 48 hours in advance, missing a checkout appointment, or failure to vacate residence halls by 9 am will result in a $50 improper checkout charge. All students are responsible for reading and following the closing instructions outlined in the Closing Letter which will be emailed to residents.

Summer Housing

Summer housing is available to students who are taking summer classes, working on campus, or completing academic related requirements. Housing cost for Summer 2019 is tentatively $575 per month; this is added to the student's account. Students needing Summer Term Housing must submit their request by April 24, 2019 via the online form. You can access the form here. Summer housing is consolidated to a single hall so relocation is necessary. Due to limited space, multiple occupancy is necessary. There is no meal plan during Summer Terms.
