Can I stay in the residence halls during breaks?

Residents in any residence hall may opt to stay over the Thanksgiving break without an additional fee. However, you may only stay in the residence halls during winter and/or spring break if you live in select buildings and agree to pay the fee associated with each break period. You should plan ahead if you think that you might need housing during these break periods and indicate this need on your housing application so that you can be placed in one of four eligible halls: Manzanita Village, San Nicolas Residence Hall, San Miguel Residence Hall or San Rafael Residence Hall.
