Break Housing

Break Housing Agreement

During break periods, staffing and services in our residential communities are limited. Therefore, in order to maintain necessary security, special policies are in effect above and beyond the College and Residence Life and Housing policies. Be sure to review the Break Housing Agreement before applying for break housing, as residents who receive approval to remain in housing during a break period are responsible for abiding by the protocols stated in this document.

How to Apply for Break Housing

To apply for Break Housing, please send a request to reslife@oswego.edu at minimum three days before the residence halls close for the break period.

Break Housing is not a guarantee and requests are not automatically approved. In the request, students need to provide the reason they need a Break Housing accommodation. Approved reasons typically include students needing to remain on campus to complete an academic or athletic obligation, students experiencing home insecurity, or students whose home address is out of the state or out of the country. If the request is approved, students will then be directed to complete a Break Housing application accessible through their myHousing account.

*For students staying in break housing because they are required to be on campus to complete an academic or athletic obligation, etc., housing fees may be charged to the sponsoring department or waived entirely.
