General Break Information

Spring Break Dates

Spring break begins Saturday, March 2, 2024 and lasts until Sunday, March 10, 2024.

Exterior Door Locking Schedule

All exterior doors for housing facilities will be locked 24/7 over break periods. This shouldn't be a change for apartment, Burntside, and Vermilion residents as they need their keys to open their exterior doors throughout the academic year.

This change particularly impacts residents who need to access the residence halls. Doors that require Ucard access will be locked at all times. 

Maintenance & Custodial Requests

Staffing over break periods is reduced, particularly on days that the university is closed. Residents staying on campus over break periods who have maintenance or custodial requests should submit a work order through their housing portal. Please keep in mind that requests may take more time to be addressed. If you have an urgent facilities need, call the Lake Superior Hall Information Desk at 218-726-7381 for assistance. 

Can I stay on campus during break periods?

Residents are allowed to remain on campus during all break periods. Residents don't have to submit a request or pay extra to stay. We ask that folks keep in mind that staffing is reduced over breaks and that other campus facilities may be closed or operating under reduced hours.

The one exception are students who graduate or who are leaving campus at the end of the semester. These students cannot stay on campus over winter break. Students must be enrolled in classes for spring semester to remain on campus.
