It's almost time for Winter Break and some well-deserved rest and relaxation. But before you hit the road or snuggle up on the couch, take a few minutes to make sure your room is ready for break too.
If you are staying on campus for break:
All residence halls remain open during break periods, and residents may stay on campus at no additional cost. However, if you are planning to stay for any period of the break (from 5 p.m. Dec. 8, 2017-9 a.m. Sunday, January 7, 2018), you need to sign up for Break Housing so that our Residential Education and Public Safety staff are aware of who will be in the building. This also helps us best serve students over the break with the appropriate custodial levels in the bathrooms.
You must sign up for break housing using MyUHDS by Dec. 6, 2017. Sign-ups begin Nov. 29, 2017.
If you are leaving campus for the break period:
Please be aware that UHDS staff will be doing checks of each room to make that there are no health or safety issues present, including waste in the trash, windows left open, or appliances/devices plugged in. (Refrigerators can remain plugged in; see below for additional information on defrosting refrigerators).
Health and safety checks will begin at 1 p.m. Friday, Dec. 8, 2017. You do not have to be present for your room check, but if you would like to be there, schedule a time with your Resident Assistant prior to Dec. 8.
Checklist before you leave for break:
Final step? Have a safe and restful break!
