This message was sent to all residents on February 24, 2021. 

Hello Student,

As we near the end of winter term and begin preparing for spring term, please take note of the following dates, deadlines, and instructions. Spring break is quickly approaching, and we ask all UO students to remain vigilant and not travel at this time.

End of Term Plans Form

Please complete the End of Winter Term 2021 Plans form on your My Housing account by Sunday, March 14. On this form, you will indicate if you are returning for spring term and any days you will be staying over spring break or if you are checking out and not returning for spring term.

Submit End of Winter 2021 Plans

Moving Out

If you are not living on campus for spring term, you must submit your plans on the End of Winter Term 2021 Plans form on My Housing, remove all your belongings, and return your key to your service center prior to winter closing on Friday, March 19, at 7:00 p.m. If you move out any time after Friday, March 19, you will be charged for the first 10 days room and board for spring term. Should you be continuing as a student at UO, please review the Residence Hall Contract for information on the termination fees.

Staying for Spring Term

If you are continuing to live on campus for spring term, please complete the End of Winter Term 2021 Plans form on your My Housing account by Sunday, March 14.

Spring Break Housing and Week fof Wellness

If you are continuing to live on campus for spring term, you may stay in your room during spring break for no additional charge. Please complete the End of Winter Term 2021 Plans form on your My Housing account by Sunday, March 14, to indicate which days you will be staying in your room over spring break. Optional COVID-19 testing will be available during spring break and required testing will start the first week of spring term. Sign up your My Housing account.

If you are staying on campus over spring break, the university has a number of fun and safe activities planned for you. The week will be themed around wellness and offer opportunities for you to de-stress, be creative, and relax. You will have access to activities that can be picked up or in-person.

Dining

Grab ‘n’ Go Market and Gastro Kitchen in Hamilton will be open 2:00–8:00 p.m. over spring break (March 20-26) using cash, credit, and Duck Bucks only. Your points will not roll over from winter to spring term. Meal points will be prorated for finals week (March 14-19) and Saturday, March 27. Your regular weekly point allotment will resume the week of March 28. Visit our website for more information on dining venue hours and prorated points.

New Roommates May Move In While You are Away

If your room has a vacant space in it, our staff will be entering over spring break to prepare the space for a new roommate. Please be sure that your belongings are not on the side of the room the new roommate will be using. In the event that you come back from spring break and find a new roommate living in your room, we hope that you will extend them a warm UO welcome.

Maintenance and Custodial

University Housing staff may enter your room during the break for custodial work, bathroom inspections, maintenance work, and/or sanitation reasons. Prior to departing for spring break, be sure to clean your in-room bathroom and take out your trash to avoid fines. Submit Fix-It requests on My Housing for any items that need maintenance or inspection.
