Subject: 2013 Winter Break Information


This is a reminder to students that all residential units will close for the fall semester at 12:00 p.m. (noon) on Sunday, December 15, 2013.  All residential units, with the exception of wood frame houses, will close at this time; seniors who wish to stay in their wood frame house at any point during the break must register by December 15, with Residential Life.

International students and student athletes will receive information regarding winter break housing from either the Office of International Student Services or their coach, respectively.

Students who do not live in wood frame houses and wish to return to campus early must submit a Winter Break Housing/Early Return form. This application is due on Friday, November 22, 2013 at 4 p.m. – no exceptions.  Please also note that all applications will be scrutinized and there is no guarantee that your request can be processed. Students who are approved to remain on-campus are international students, approved winter athletes, or have valid on-campus employment. The only students approved to return for research are seniors working on their thesis. Students currently studying abroad that are not an approved athlete or participating in one of the Wesleyan winter session programs are not eligible for early return.

Students who will be working on-campus during the winter break must request housing with the Office of Residential Life by Friday, November 22, 2013. 

If you are participating in the Winter Session, please apply for housing by completing the Winter Session Housing form. Student must complete this form by December 2, 2013 at Noon (12 p.m.) EST.

In order to maximize class appropriate spaces for students returning from leave/abroad, the Office of Residential Life will not process Room Change Requests after Friday, November 15, 2013.  Students interested in making a room change after this date must wait until two weeks into the spring semester, after all returning students have been placed.  Requests to pull-in a student into a spring vacancy can be made until Friday, November 22, 2013. 

Students can return to campus at 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 21, 2014. Students who are moving into a new assignment will not be able to pick-up their keys prior to this time.

Any questions regarding these processes should be directed to Residential Life at 860-685-3550 or at

Thank you.
