Early Arrivals, Break Stays, & Extended Stays

Early Arrivals, Break Stays, & Extended Stays

Circumstances sometimes require students to reside on campus before the academic year, over Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring Breaks, or after residence halls close. Staffing is reduced during these periods, so only students who need to be on-campus are allowed to be present. Students must complete a request form in advance of their early, break, or extended stay. Requests are only for:

  • International/Out of State Students
  • On-Campus Student Employees
  • Student-Athletes
  • Students with Academic-Related Reasons

In all cases, students should make their requests in advance and note our policies and procedures below:

  • Arriving early, staying over break, or staying after classes have ended is a privilege. 
  • Students are required to follow all University, Residential Life & Housing, and J-Book policies during their time on-campus.
  • All CSB/SJU students who are guests may visit from 9 am - 10 pm daily during break periods.
  • Non-CSB/SJU students are not allowed as guests in residential areas during break periods.
  • Requests submitted after the deadline result in a $25 administrative fee to accommodate the request on short notice.
  • Students who request access to the residence halls without permission will have a $25 key-in fee assessed to their student account.
  • Staying in a residential area without permission results in a $25 charge per day, up to $100 per week.
