Break housing

Dates and times of hall closings (fall 2013 - spring 2014)

Residence halls are scheduled to close down during extended holiday breaks. Below is the list of these breaks and the dates and times the halls will close for the academic year. If you require break housing at any point during the listed times, please fill out the form at the bottom of this page.

  • Thanksgiving Break: Tuesday, Nov. 26 at 10 p.m. through Sunday, Dec. 1 at 2 p.m.
  • Winter Break: Friday, Dec. 13 at 7 p.m. through Monday, Jan. 6 at 2 p.m.
  • Spring Break: Friday, Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. through Sunday, March 9 at 2 p.m.

Designated halls

We realize that it is inconvenient for students to move from their permanent room to temporary housing in another hall, but it is impractical to keep all of the residence halls open over the vacation periods; thus, housing  will be provided in the following residence halls:

Hirschy Annex: Available to men only
Ropp hall, Addition and Annex: Available to both women and men

Students who need to remain on campus that do not live in either Hirschy Annex or Ropp will need to make arrangements with a fellow student to stay in a room in one of these designated halls. Students that will be staying in Hirschy Annex need to obtain the card key from the student, while students that will be staying Ropp need to obtain both the room key for the room they will be staying in and a key card for the outside doors.

Break housing policies

For security reasons, all exterior doors will remain locked on a 24-hour basis. In addition, regular visitation hours, as listed in the handbook, will be observed. All campus policies will remain in effect and will be enforced over break.

Once you have completed the form, you will be contacted by student life with approval confirmation and further details. If you have any questions, please contact the office at 419-358-3247 or email studentlife@bluffton.edu.
