Winter Break Housing

Barnard College's residence halls close officially for Winter Break at 9am on Friday, December 21, 2012 and reopen at 9am on Saturday, January 19, 2013.

Note:  The residence halls *do not* close for Fall, Thanksgiving, or Spring breaks (although most College offices, including Health Services and the dining halls, will be closed for all or part of those breaks).

Students may not return to or live in the residence halls over Winter Break UNLESS they have been given permission by Residential Life & Housing and have a valid 2012/13 Winter Break sticker on their ID.  Only students living in the residence halls for BOTH the Fall & Spring semesters may request Winter Break Housing.

The Winter Break Housing Request form will be available online ( starting Monday, November 19, and must be submitted no later than 4pm on Friday, December 7, 2012.

Students approved to stay over Winter Break will be billed $400 on their student account ($100 if approved for housing between January 14-18 only).

616, 620, and Elliott will be completely closed between 9am on December 21 through 9am on January 14 (no one may occupy the building during that time).  Residents of those three buildings who wish to apply for Winter Break Housing will be responsible for locating someone to give them permission to use their room (in a residence hall which will be open) in order to be considered for housing over the break.
