Winter Closing

To better align with the University of Utah's modified academic calendar and online instruction period, HRE has made adjustments to Fall 2020 housing for residents living in residence halls.

Residence Hall Closing Dates
  • Some buildings close on November 25 at 2:00 p.m. and will not be accessible to students over winter break. After this time, you are not permitted to be in your room. You may leave all belongings in your room during the break. Make sure you take anything with you that you will need as you will not have access to your room to retrieve items. If you wish to remain on campus during either the extension or winter break, please opt in for an additional cost on Housing U, beginning in October.
  • Some buildings will remain open through the entire extension and winter break period. You do not need to vacate your space between semesters as this time is built into your housing contract and no adjustments are needed.

  • Chapel Glen
  • Gateway Heights
  • Sage Point
  • Officers Circle
