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 over during breaks, Bennett Tower provides space during Thanksgiving, winter and spring breaks. 
  • 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. Reserve Your Break Housing
If you have any questions, contact us at WVU Housing Email or 304-293-2811.
