  • Winter Break Closing & Housing

    Winter Break Closing & Housing

    All buildings will close for winter break on Wednesday, November 22, 2023. Residents must be moved out prior to 9 a.m. on November 22 but may keep belongings in their rooms during the break. There will be no access to the residence halls while the buildings are closed, so please plan accordingly. Students who will not be living on campus for the winter quarter must be moved and checked out prior to 9 a.m. on November 22.


    Who is eligible for winter break housing?

    Winter Break Housing will be available for current residents who are taking winter break courses, have DU obligations on campus (ex. internships, jobs, being a part of an athletic team, etc.), or DU is their permanent address.


    How do I apply for winter break housing?

    To be eligible for winter break housing, residents must have a housing assignment for the Winter 2024 quarter. Residents must apply for winter break housing via the Housing Portal. This application will become available on Monday, October 23, 2023. Residents approved for winter break housing will remain in their current housing assignments. It’s important to remember that residents who do not fully complete their winter break housing application by November 17, 2023, will not be eligible for winter break housing and will not have access to any residential building during winter break.


    Do I have to pay for winter break housing?

    Yes, residents staying on-campus during Winter Break will be charged a flat Winter Break Housing fee of $1730. This fee covers the entire winter break period and would only be reduced/pro-rated if a resident fully checks out of their housing assignment and submits a Contract Breakage Request before January 7, 2024.


    If I don’t have winter break housing, when do I have to move out?

    Students not approved for winter break housing must move out by Wednesday, November 22, 2023, by 9:00 a.m.


    What if I miss the deadline to sign up for winter break housing?

    You will still be able to submit a Winter Break Housing Application, but all applications received after November 17, 2023 with be subject to a $50 late fee. Please note, that it may take up 72 hours for your application to be processed. We will not process any late applications after December 20, 2023. Until your application is processed, you will not be able to access your space on campus.
