Residence Hall Break Housing

Break Housing 


WVU's residence halls officially close three times (Thanksgiving Break, between fall and spring semesters, and Spring Break) 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 2018-2019 academic year, Oakland, Seneca, and Summit Halls as well as Evansdale Residential Complex (Towers) will offer break housing to their residents. 
  • A limited number of spaces have been designated in Brooke Tower for students who live in halls other than those which are open during the break. 
  • The cost for break housing is $25 per day; charges will be applied to the student's account after their stay. 
  • Only current residents with existing housing contracts for 2018-19 are eligible for break housing. 
  • To ensure everyone's safety, no guests will be permitted.  
  • Meal service will not be available during spring break; students may use Mountie Bounty at 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 Brooke Tower.
