Break Time Housing

Break-time Housing is for housing between academic periods. There are three different Break Housing periods:

May Break Between spring closing and summer move-in
August Break Between summer closing and fall move-in
Winter Break Between fall closing and spring move-in

Students are eligible for Break Housing if they were HRE residents and for the upcoming academic semester, they have a reserved space.
