Fall/Winter 2020 Break Housing

Students who have a critical need to remain on campus during the fall/winter break period may request emergency break housing.

A limited number of residence halls (Oakland East/West, as well as Bennett, Braxton, Brooke and Lyon Towers in the Evansdale Residential Complex), are scheduled to remain open during fall/winter break. Students living in these halls may register to stay in their rooms during the break period. A limited number of spaces have been designated in the Evansdale Residential Complex (Towers) for students who live in halls other than these four. 

  1. Residents are subject to all policies outlined in the University Student Code of Conduct and Residence Hall Community Standards of Conduct.
  2. To ensure everyone's safety, no guests are permitted.
  3. Dining during fall/winter Break will be limited; Dining Dollars and Mountie Bounty may be used in designated WVU locations. 
  4. No linens are provided during the break period. 
  5. Fitness centers are not open during the break period. 
  6. If mail service and package delivery are available, they will be limited during the break period. 
  7. Residents will not have access to their regularly assigned residence hall space if their regular hall is not open during the break and they are assigned to an overflow space in the Evansdale Residential Complex (Towers).
