During the Holidays

Residences close in December for the winter break

You'll be required to leave residence within 24 hoursĀ of your last fall-term exam. Residence buildings close for winter break at noon the day after the last exam scheduled in the Undergraduate Calendar. See Important Dates & Deadlines for general winter break dates. Please don't make your travel arrangements until you know your own personal exam schedule!

You can leave all of your things in your room during the December holiday

However, please ensure you have closed your windows and that everything is turned off. If you have a fridge, make sure you have emptied it of everything that could go bad during the period you are away. The residences will not re-open until January, so ensure you take everything you might need when you leave for the break.

Emergency accommodation is availableĀ (charges apply). Contact the Residence Office.
