New Roommates May Move In

Rooms with vacancies may be entered to prepare the space for a new resident. Please be sure that your belongings are not on the side of the room the new resident will be using. In the event that you come back from break and find a new roommate living in your room, we hope that you will extend them a warm UO welcome and provide them equitable space to share the room.

Maintenance

Scheduled maintenance may be completed during break. This includes checking smoke detectors, door locks, heaters, and other projects. This will require University Housing staff to be in the rooms. If you have any questions or concerns, please visit or call your University Housing Service Center.

Winter Break Fees

Since the halls close over winter break, there is an additional fee of $580 ($460 for Law School students) for students who stay on campus and are unable to vacate during this time. Remaining students may be moved into temporary rooms to allow for better campus safety during this period of low occupancy. There is a $25 daily fee for any student checking out of the residence halls late (after Friday, December 7 at 7:00 p.m.)
