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.

Summer Housing

Students enrolled in summer sessions have the option to live on campus while they are enrolled in classes.  Students may request housing per session based on their enrollment. Students assigned to summer housing are responsible for all housing and dining fees as listed above. The summer housing application is available at myhousing.oswego.edu. Please reach out to reslife@oswego.edu if you have any questions. 

  • Summer 2022 housing will be located in Johnson Hall.
  • Summer school students will be provided a furnished single room and a refrigerator for the duration of their stay.
  • All students residing in housing must agree to the Summer 2022 Housing License and follow all applicable campus rules and policies. 
  • Students will transition to summer housing on May 14th and transition back to their fall housing assignment on August 7th.

Students not enrolled in summer sessions may request summer housing by emailing us at reslife@oswego.edu. Those requests will be reviewed on a case by case basis and may require additional supporting documentation. Students requesting housing that are not required to be on-campus for classes or departmental sponsored work or research are generally not approved for summer housing.

Early Arrival & Late Stay Requests

Students may request to move in or return early to campus at the beginning of each semester or request to move out or stay late at the end of each semester. These requests are not automatically approved and students need to provide the reason they need this accommodation. Approved reasons to arrive early or stay late typically include students needing to be on campus to complete an academic or athletic obligation, students needing to attend a training or provide a service for an on-campus job or position, or students experiencing unavoidable travel conflicts.  
 
The daily rate to arrive early or stay late is $40 for housing and $30 for dining (if the dining halls are serving meals).  For students arriving early or staying late because they are required to be on campus to complete a training, campus service, or other obligation, etc., housing fees may be charged to the sponsoring department or waived entirely.  Staffing and services in our residential communities are limited during these periods. 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 Early Arrival Agreement before submitting a request, as residents who receive approval are responsible for abiding by the protocols stated in this document.
