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.
All residents can leave their belongings in their rooms during break periods as long as their UHDS Contract is current.
Due to COVID-19, Oregon State will deliver the final two weeks of fall term 2020 remotely, and all final exams will be remote.

Dining locations remain open on campus during break periods, though some locations may close and schedules may vary from hours during the academic term. There is no extra dining plan option for break periods.
Students scheduled to stay over breaks may use their regular term dining 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 dining plan dollars will not be available for use until the end of the break.
