There are action items for those staying in 10-month halls or those registering for winter session classes meeting at the Blacksburg campus.  For a schedule of dates and times for on-campus residence halls, please see our Important Dates pagePlease take a few minutes to check your calendars and/or discuss your plans with your family or friends so that your departure and arrival can be scheduled appropriately.

Winter Break 2014

Students must check out of their rooms within 24 hours after their last fall exam, but no later than noon, Friday, December 19, if they are not directly involved with the commencement ceremony.  Students graduating or directly involved with the ceremony should register to stay past their exams at the Important Dates page.  

Residence halls will close at noon, Saturday, December 20, for all buildings except those 10-month residence halls (Ambler Johnston, Main Campbell, Newman, the graduate life center at Donaldson Brown, Harper, Hillcrest, Oak Lane houses, and Cochrane halls)  As with Thanksgiving Break, students in those buildings may register to stay for part or all of the break.  Registration for winter break buildings will be held December 1 – 18, 2014, at the Break Housing page.

Winter Session 2015

Students who are not residing in the 10-month buildings listed above but who are enrolled for the Winter Session 2015 on-campus courses are able to register to stay in their on-campus room from Thursday, 1 January 2015, through spring 2015 normal residence hall opening.  There is an additional $312 charge for this period for residents who live in non-10 month buildings.  Information about registration is available at Winter Sessions 2015 Housing page.   If a student is a resident of a 10-month building that is normally open during the break, they register through the normal winter break process  above and there is no additional charge.
