University Housing reserves the right to alter the location of break housing as deemed necessary by such factors as, but not limited to, under-enrollment in break housing, issues with campus buildings or infrastructure, utility outages, etc.

In such cases, for students who have properly requested break housing, the University may provide comparable housing at the published rate, which may be located on- or off-campus, noting that exact duplication of our Residence Hall rooms may not be possible.
