Winter Break Housing

Winter Break Housing is a pilot program designed for current and returning residents who are seeking housing during the hall closure period, December 7, 2019 - January 10, 2020 (Winter Break)

Winter-break Housing Application Dates: 8 AM, September 6, 2019 - 8 AM, November 1, 2019

Winter-break Housing Pilot Program FAQ's:

What is Winter-break Housing? 

This is a pilot program designed for current and returning residents who are seeking housing during the hall closure period, December 7, 2019 - January 10, 2020

What are the Winter-break Housing application Dates?

Students interested in Winter-break Housing can apply  8am on Friday, September 6th - 8am Friday, November 1st. Apply via MyHousing Portal (Housing Portal), the application name is "FSU Current Student - Winter Break Housing Application"


Do I have to participate in the on campus Winter-break Housing program? 

This is an optional program for residents who need to stay in the area and prefer to stay on campus.  There are a host of local housing options/area resources that you can research and compare.   

Will there be a meeting about this?

Yes, please attend the Residence Life Community Meetings on September 19th and November 12th or stop by our office in Williams Hall.  Additional and detailed meetings forthcoming, for those who confirm attendance.

Are there any requirements?

Applicants must be in good standing with the University academically, financially, and via conduct. Residence Life reserves the right to deny applicants who have serious conduct violations or outstanding fines.  Applicants must be current residential students who are enrolled in both Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 classes, no exceptions.

How do I apply?

You must apply through our Housing website during these dates, September 6th - November 1st You should apply early and pay as soon as you can because we must have at least 50 students confirmed and paid before November 1st.   We can not sustain the program with less than 50 confirmed attending. 

What happens if I apply and the program gets canceled?

If there are not enough participants to sustain the program (50 minimum paid and confirmed), you will be notified and refunded during the 1st week of November.    

How much does Winter-break Housing cost?

There is one flat rate of $500 for housing rental due no later than November 1st.   You can pay this in 4 increments of $125 each, or all at one time before November 1st

How do I pay?

If  your application is approved you will be sent an invoice to pay at the FSU Cashiers Office.  Some students may pay all upfront, with one invoice and others may need smaller increments.  The full amount is due before November 1st.   If the program gets canceled before the deadline,  you will be refunded 100% (normally takes 10 business days).

Can I just sign up to stay late for one week or two?

Unfortunately, this is a full package pilot program, not a weekly rental. You sign up and pay for the entire break regardless of how may days you come and go away from campus.

Why can't the Winter-break Housing fee be added to my student account?

Financial Aid does not cover non-academic breaks.  If you are receiving a refund or receiving extra funds through out the semester, save those funds and apply to your invoice.   

Where would I live?

The following buildings have spaces for Winter-break Housing:

  • University Place Apartments (UPA)
  • McLeod Hall
  • Renaissance Hall  

If you currently reside in one of the areas that are eligible for Winter-break Housing, you'll be assigned to your regular room.  If you reside in a different building (e.g. Hood Hall) , you would be assigned to a vacancy in one of the buildings that may be open.  This would not be a permanent assignment, only for the Winter-break period.  There are limited vacancies, and only available to first-come first-served (applied and fully paid).  

What if I live in one of the buildings hosting Winter-break students, do I still have to apply and pay for housing?

Yes, your fall housing agreement ends at 12noon on December 7th and does not resume until January 10th check-in.  If you want access to occupy a housing space and your room, you must sign up for this program.

I live in a hall that is a 'Winter-break option' but I will not be staying for Winter-break, does this mean someone else will be sleeping in my bed?

No, Winter-break housing participants will only stay in vacant spaces or spaces of people not returning for Spring 2020.    

What if I live in UPA and I'm the only person in my apartment who signs up for Winter-break Housing, can I let my friends or apartment-mates stay or visit during the break?

There is no visitation during the break period.  Non-approved residents will not have access to buildings or spaces.  If you violate the agreement and provide access to others, your agreement is voided with no refund.  You would immediately have to move out and will face possible housing suspension.

What if I sign up for the full break but later decide to go visit friends for a week?

There are no pro-rates or refunds if you do not stay for the full 33 days.  You can decide to check out for a few days and return back at a later date, you have that flexibility.  For emergency purposes, we do ask that you notify the Residence Life Staff when you'll be away and return.  

How will I get food or eat during Winter-break?

There is a meal plan requirement, but does depend on which plan you select.  Additional details forthcoming about the plan types and additional cost. McLeod Hall and Renaissance Hall have a common area kitchen that will be open during specific hours. UPA has private kitchens.  We recommend preparing in advance, collecting items from the food pantry and private sources.   A few campus sources, including Residence Life may host a few programs that include meals.  A list of meal delivery services and restaurants offering discounts will be provided.

If the Resident Assistants (RA's) are gone on break too, who's here with us?

Quite a few Residence Life Professional Staff members are giving up their normal holiday time off to work in the halls to support this program.  Campus Police, Campus Facilities, different Student Affairs Administrators are also supporting this pilot program with personnel and resources. Campus Police is continuously open 24 hours a day and will provide in hall support along with Residence Life.   

What happens during an emergency or inclement weather?

No one can predict winter weather or the effect on utilities or facilities.   If a facility incident or inclement weather occurs, there is a possibly that residents are consolidated into other spaces or may be evacuated into shelter type conditions.  These spaces may or may not be the same as traditional rooms.       

Do the regular campus rules apply?

The student handbook policies, housing agreement policies and campus safety rules still apply.
