Thanksgiving Break

Halls Remain Open: November 26–29

During Thanksgiving break students may stay in the residence halls. Students need to register on My Housing to notify housing they will be staying over break. There is no additional fee for staying over the Thanksgiving break. Although classes and final exams will be fully remote after Thanksgiving break, residence halls and dining will remain open until the end of the term.

COVID-19 Testing

All UO residence hall students are required to be tested for COVID-19 the week of November 16. Residence hall students who are traveling should schedule their pre-travel test at least 4 days prior to departure to ensure they receive their results in time.

There will be no testing offered for residence hall students between Monday, Nov. 23–Sunday, Nov. 29 because of the break. 

If you would normally be scheduled for a test the week of Nov. 23–29, you should schedule a test the week before (Nov. 16–19). If you plan to travel, make sure you schedule your test at least 4 days prior to departure.
