Housing during breaks in the academic year

All OSU residence halls will remain open during all breaks. Break housing is included in all UHDS room and board rates.

Students must sign up for break housing so that our Residential Education and Public Safety staff are aware of who will be in the building and we will be able to best serve students over the break with the appropriate custodial levels in the bathrooms.

You must sign up for Spring Break Housing by Wednesday, March 21, 2018.


Here’s what you need to know about signing up for break housing:

  • To sign up for break housing, login to MyUHDS and select “Active Applications.” Pick the appropriate break housing link to notify UHDS of your stay. 
  • To be eligible for break housing, residents must currently be living on campus.
  • Only students with active contracts for the following term will be able to sign up for break housing.
  • You will not be allowed to stay over the breaks if your intention is to use the time to move out of UHDS facilities.


All residents can leave their belongings in their rooms during break periods as long as their UHDS Contract is current.

Dining locations remain open on campus during break periods. There is no extra dining plan option for break periods. Students scheduled to stay over breaks may use their regular term meal plan if money is still on it, or are encouraged to use and add to the money on their Orange Cash accounts. The next term’s meal plan dollars will not be available for use until the end of the break.
