Winter Session Housing

Am I required to live in a residence hall during Winter Session?

No, you are not required to live on campus during Winter Session, but many students enjoy being back on campus to both take advantage of the educational opportunities and to engage in the vibrant campus life.

If you do plan to live on campus for Winter Session, you must complete the Winter Session housing application (beginning October 27) IF you are:

  • an undergraduate living on campus for fall or spring semester* OR
  • a current Associate in Arts student

AND you are:

  • enrolled in a 4- or 5-week Winter Session course OR
  • involved in a University-sponsored activity.

*Note: Students living in the Christiana Towers Apartments, Executive Apartments or Graduate Student and Family Housing (Conover Apartments or Graduate House) don't need to fill out the Winter Session housing application.

See below for more specific information regarding Graduate Student and Family Housing.

There is no charge for Winter Session housing for undergraduate students living on campus fall or spring semester.

If you wish to cancel your Winter Session application/assignment and dining plan, go to the Winter Session Application in the My Housing portal and select  'Cancel your Winter Session Assignment'  next to 'Application Status.'  If you've been assessed the Dining Charge please allow up to 48 hours for a credit to be issued.

When can I check in to/check out of my Winter Session housing?

Residence hall check-in for Winter Session 5-week classes is on January 4, 2015 from 2-9 p.m. or for Winter Session 5-week class walk-ins, from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. on January 5, 2015.

Residence hall check-in for Winter Session 4-week classes is on January 11, 2015 from 2-9 p.m. or for Winter Session 4-week class walk-ins, from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. on January 12, 2015.

Students leaving on-campus housing after Winter Session must check out of the residence halls by 7 p.m. on February 7, 2015.

Students who need to check in or out of the halls at a time other than those listed here may be charged a fee and should contact the Residence Life & Housing Office.

Is the Winter Meal Plan mandatory?

All students living in traditional residence halls or suites during Winter Session are required to purchase a full dining plan. If you do not select a plan, one will automatically be chosen and billed to you.

Students living in the Christiana Towers Apartments, Executive Apartments, Graduate Student and Family Housing (Conover Apartments or Graduate House) or off-campus may choose to sign up for any of the available dining plans, but are not required to do so.

For more information about choosing a dining plan, visit Dining Services.

For more information about Winter Session dining, visit the Winter Session site.

If I am not enrolled in a class during Winter Session, can I still live on campus?

Undergraduate resident students not enrolled in a Winter Session course may request to live in the residence halls if they have a University-related reason to be on campus (such as University employment, research, etc.) by completing the Winter Session housing application.

Students living in Christiana Towers, Executive Apartments and Graduate Student and Family Housing (Conover Apartments or Graduate House) do not need to register for a course, or complete the Winter Session housing application, to remain in their current residence during Winter Session.

Can I live on campus for just the Winter Session?

Yes, but only if you are an Associate in Arts student and will be taking a Newark campus class during Winter Session.

There is a $500 housing fee and special housing application that is due by November 10.

All others must either have lived on campus during the fall semester or have an application on file with a signed Student Housing Contract for the Spring semester.

What if I've changed rooms for Spring semester, but plan to live on campus during Winter Session?

Full information about room change procedures, including information on how to handle mid-year room changes is available on our Room Change page.

Is there a housing fee for students living in graduate and family housing (Conover Apartments or Graduate House) during Winter Session?

Students living in graduate or family housing (Conover Apartments or Graduate House) during Winter Session pay their normal monthly rate, but no increment related to whether or not they enroll in Winter Session.

Can I use Student Health Services?

Students enrolled in Winter Session classes pay a health fee and are free to fully make use of Student Heath Services.

Students not enrolled in Winter Session may visit Student Health Service and pay a fee-for-service. Learn more about Student Health Service Fees and Charges.
