Winter Session Housing
To remain in the residence halls during Winter Session, students are required to register for at least one Winter Session course OR receive approval from an academic faculty or advisor, coach, work supervisor, etc. to participate in a University activity. Students residing in on-campus residence halls will be billed a $500 housing fee for Winter Session regardless of the type of room or area of campus.
Residents of the Christiana Towers and Traditional Residence Hall apartemetns are not required to register for Winter Session courses to remain in their apartment, nor are they charged a separate Winter Session housing fee. The Christiana Towers Apartments are viewed as a continuous 9-month residence hall instead of a semester based traditional residence hall.
Students who will not be staying in the residence halls during Winter Session will not be charged the Winter Session housing fee. Students living in the residence halls during Winter Session for class are charged the full 5 weeks and must pay the $500 Winter Session housing fee. Residents of buildings other than the apartments must purchase one of the full meal plans (see Dining Plans). Students living in Conover Apartments or the Graduate House will pay the designated monthly charge.
For complete details and Residence Life Winter Session information, please refer to Winter Session General Information. All students remaining on campus should complete the Winter Session Housing Registration Form; the On-line Housing form indicating Winter Session occupancy.
Winter Session Activities
Students who receive approval from an academic faculty or advisor, coach, work supervisor, etc. to remain in the residence halls without being registered for a Winter Session credit course must be aware of the following:
Stays less than the full 5 weeks require written justification from the approver and permission from HAS. Partial stays must be consecutive with a single start and end date. Students living in the residence halls during Winter Session for 4-5 weeks pay the full $500 Winter Session housing fee; students staying in the residence halls for 1-3 weeks pay $250; students staying in the residence halls for less than one week will pay $30 per day.
A dining plan is required for all students living in the residence halls during Winter Session. The cost of a Winter Session Dining Plan ranges from $725. If a student does not submit a dining plan request, (s)he will automatically be billed for the default meal plan - 10 meals per week and points.
The Winter Session Health fee is optional. Students who wish to sign up for the $66 Winter Session Health fee, must check the appropriate box on the Winter Session Activities Registration form. Students also have the option to register for this service if/when it is needed. For additional information about Student Health Service charges and fees visit the Student Health Service Web site.
An exception is being made when a student is permitted to live in the residence halls during Winter Session without being registered for a credit course.

These students may be required to leave the residence hall immediately if there is a policy violation.
