Fall Break Information

We hope that the fall semester is going well, and that you are ready to enjoy some well-deserved time off from class! We wanted to share some information regarding the upcoming closing, and what is expected as you prepare to leave Temple for a few days.

What YOU Need to Know!

The residence halls close on Saturday, November 21st at 7:00 PM. This date is very important, and please make sure that travel plans are made to accommodate that time. If you have any questions regarding your departure, please make sure to speak with your Resident Director as soon as possible. If you need to stay for any portion of the break, please make sure to fill out the Housing Extension Request form on “MyHousing” by Friday, November 13th at 5:00PM. Failure to do so by the 13th will result in a $50 late fee. Halls will open on Saturday, November 28th at 10:00 AM.


Additionally, as you plan for the remainder of the semester, the residence halls close for Winter Break on Wednesday, December 16th at 7:00PM. The exception forms for that break are due on Wednesday, December 2nd at 5:00PM.

As you pack up for break, please take time to make sure to leave your room in good condition. Residential Life staff will be conducting walkthroughs of each room, and any Student Conduct Code violations will be addressed accordingly. Here are some requirements of how your room should be left:


o Empty all of your trash

o Close and lock all windows

o Blinds/Curtains should be closed

o Lights are out

o ALL perishable items need to be removed or disposed of

o Any valuable items should be brought home
