Housing for Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring Breaks

What is "Break Housing"

The standard housing agreement is from the official move-in day in August to the official move-out day in May (after spring finals). During that time, the University typically has three breaks: Thanksgiving/Fall Break, Winter Break, and Spring Break. 

If you would like to stay in your assigned room over any of the three breaks, you must complete the Break Stay Form associated with the break, found on the forms page. Specific break information per building type is listed below. 

Expectations if not staying for Break:

If you do not need to stay over the break, you can leave all of your belongings in the room. RLH will place a checklist on your door for reminders about how to "close up" your room for the break. The instructions include items to cut utility costs, fight against rodents, protect against possible fire hazards, and remind students to grab important items such as medicine. An example checklist for the residence halls is here. The DATE fields would be filled in with the appropriate dates for the checklist placed on the students' doors. The Walking Stick checklist is similar but adapted for apartment living. 

Staff will enter each room and apartment for health and safety checks at the beginning of each break period. Maintenance staff may also be in the rooms and apartments over the break to handle facility concerns.

    Crestone, Culebra, and Greenhorn Halls

    In response to resident and parent feedback, the rates for the Residence Halls now include Thanksgiving and Spring Break periods. While there will not be an extra charge for these dates, residents must complete the Break Application so that our team can provide access and be aware of who is here in the event of an emergency.

    Due to the length of Winter Break, the cost is not included in fall/spring Residence Hall rates. The charge for winter break is $125 per week. We will prorate based not the dates you indicated are needed on your Break Application. Failure to sign up by the advertised timelines for each break will result in a late sign-up fee.

    Staff will enter each room for health and safety checks at the beginning of each break period. Maintenance staff may also be in the rooms and apartments over the break to handle facility concerns.

    Students who wish to return for summer housing may request to stay the week between spring finals and the start of summer school. This can be indicated on the Summer Housing Application.

    Walking Stick Apartments

    In response to resident feedback, Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring Breaks are included in the fall/spring Walking Stick Rates. While there will not be an extra charge for these dates, residents must complete the Break Application so that our team can be aware of who is here in the event of an emergency. Failure to sign up by the advertised timelines for each break will result in a late sign-up fee. 

    Staff will enter each apartment for health and safety checks at the beginning of each break period. Maintenance staff may also be in the rooms and apartments over the break to handle facility concerns.

    Students who wish to return for summer housing may request to stay the week between spring finals and the start of summer school. This can be indicated on the Summer Housing Application. RLH assigns summer housing locations based on the following fall assignments if the apartment is available. Our goal is that each student residing in WS and returning to WS only have to move once. However, renovations and other maintenance concerns may remove an apartment from summer housing and require a resident to be housed in a temporary summer location until their fall location is available. This only applies to Walking Stick apartments since the Residence Halls are not used for summer housing.

    Summer Break

    Summer Break is not considered part of the Fall/Spring housing agreement. We do not allow students to store belongings in their fall/spring assignment but may offer storage solutions at a competitive rate if space allows. Please contact housing@csupueblo.edu if you would like information on storage options over the summer break. 

    For students wanting to remain on-campus for summer, we have a separate Summer Housing application. We can provide housing for students 365 days a year but it may mean the student has to move between each agreement. Summer Housing is typically only in Walking Stick Apartment. Being placed in Walking Stick apartments for the summer does not mean you may stay in the apartment for Fall. The apartments fill up during the spring Returning Resident Reapplication process for the following fall/spring year. However, the Walking Stick Waitlist is utilized year-round so you can always put your name on the waitlist for a current or future term.
