Residence Hall Break Housing

Break Housing 


WVU's residence halls officially close three times throughout the school year. Because we realize that some students might still need a place to stay during these breaks, we are offering a solution - staying in town and on campus.  

In 2017-2018 academic year,  Oakland, Seneca, Summit and Bennett Tower will each offer break housing to their residents.
  • If a resident of another hall wants to stay during breaks, Bennett Tower provides space during spring break. 
  • The cost for break housing is $25 per day.
  • To ensure everyone's safety, no guests will be permitted.
  • No meals will be served in University Dining facilities and no meal plans will be active; instead, students may use Mountie Bounty at many participating locations.  Mountie Bounty Participating Locations
  • Interested students can register online and must agree to additional terms specific to break housing.  
  • If there is little or no demand in Oakland, Seneca, and Summit for break housing, Housing and Residence Life reserves the right to close one or all of these residences and move students with break housing reservations to Bennett Tower.
