Students on Leave
Once leave plans become final, the student forfeits their space in the residence hall. If a student who plans to go on leave changes their plans, housing is not guaranteed and that student will be placed on a waiting list.
Students on leave for the year should give the Office of Residential Life in writing the name of a proxy (the person who has her permission to make decisions for him/her during lottery). Students planning on returning in the spring do not need a proxy; housing information will be sent to them. Students should notify the office in writing of any address changes and/or current contact information.
Break Housing for Students on Leave
Students who are going on any kind of leave may not stay for any break period immediately before or immediately after their leave. For example, if a student is studying abroad for the Fall semester (August - December), they are not eligible to return early for Intersession in January and are only able to return on the designated hall opening date just prior to the Spring semester in mid-January. All dates when the halls open and close are available on the Open and Close Dates page. This same policy applies for all break housing time periods including December Break, Intersession/J-Term and Summer.
