Holiday Observances / Candles are prohibited

As the holiday season begins, Residential Life & Housing would like to send along our best wishes for a successful completion to your semester and for a happy and healthy holiday season.

The holiday season is filled with special occasions & traditions which have an impact on our entire community. We would like for everyone to be safe in their observance of the holiday season.

With this in mind, please be reminded that the possession and lighting of any candles in the residence halls is prohibited.  We will do our best to accommodate as many observances as possible providing they are safe for the entire community.

For example, during Hanukkah the lighting of candles will ONLY be allowed in the following locations and during the following dates/times with the supervision of volunteers from Hillel.

  • December 6 - 13, 5-7pm
    • Sulz Lobby
    • 600 Lounge
    • 616 Lounge
    • Elliott lounge
  • No more than 2 menorahs may be lit in each location.

If you would like to request to arrange something for another tradition, please be in touch with as soon as possible so we can assist you.

Thanks for your cooperation and we wish you a very happy holiday season!
