Wintersession 2014 Housing Eligibility Policy


Only approved students and those who have spring semester room assignments will be allowed to return to campus for Wintersession 2014 and be assigned temporary housing in one of three designated Wintersession residence halls.  This memo provides greater detail about the housing eligibility policy.


Students will be permitted to return for Wintersession housing only if they meet one of the following eligibility requirements:


1.  Students in programs that require their presence on campus (e.g. Madeline Albright Institute, Freedom Project, Winter Theatre, winter varsity athletic teams).

2.  Students whose current academic work requires their presence on campus (e.g. students enrolled in on-campus Wintersession classes, approved thesis students).   

3.  Student employees in positions deemed essential to conducting the business of the  College.

4.  International students needing housing for the entire period between Dec. 21, 2013 until Jan. 25, 2014 will be given priority.  All other international students will be placed on a waiting list and housed as space becomes available.  In the past we have been able to accommodate all international student requests.
