Housing during breaks in the academic year

The OSU-Cascades residence hall will remain open during all breaks. Break housing is included in all room and board rates.

Students must sign up for break housing so that our Residential Education and Public Safety staff are aware of who will be in the building and we will be able to best serve students over the break with the appropriate custodial levels in the bathrooms.

 

Here’s what you need to know about signing up for break housing:

  • To sign up for break housing, you must register through the myHousing portal.
  • To be eligible for break housing, residents must currently be living on campus.
  • Only students with active contracts for the following term will be able to sign up for break housing.
  • You will not be allowed to stay over the breaks if your intention is to use the time to move out of the residence hall.

All residents can leave their belongings in their rooms during break periods as long as their Room and Dining Contract is current.

The Beaver Dam Dining Center may be open with a limited schedule during scheduled breaks. There is no extra dining plan option for break periods. Students scheduled to stay over breaks may use their regular term meal plan if money is still on it, or are encouraged to use and add to the money on their Orange Cash accounts. The next term’s meal plan dollars will not be available for use until the start of the next term.
