Winter Intersession Housing

On-campus housing is available for resident students who would like to live on campus for any portion of the winter intersession period, regardless of their enrollment in any intersession courses. However, Winter Intersession Housing is only available to students who are residing in on-campus housing for the following spring semester. Therefore, students who are leaving housing at the end of the preceding fall semester are not eligible.

All resident students who want to remain in on-campus housing for any or all of the winter intersession period(s) will need to apply. More information on the application process is available on the Housing Portal via CaneLink.
