Thanksgiving Break Information

Current residents do not need to apply for housing during Thanksgiving break.

However, we ask that you complete this survey to indicate your intent to stay on campus during the break. This is to help Dining Services coordinate their food production and students' dietary needs.


Returning to Campus after Break

  • When we return from Thanksgiving Break, we will have our Asymptomatic Testing Center located at the Conference Center with increased staffing. We strongly encourage the entire campus community to stop by Monday, 11/29 through Thursday, 12/2 to take an asymptomatic test. We know that the Thanksgiving Holiday is one that comes with large familial and social gatherings and want to ensure that we each do our part to minimize the risk for our Bobcat Community.
  • To the extent you can gather outdoors socially, please do so. Outdoor transmission is extremely rare and allows us to both gather with our friends and family and minimize the risk of extended exposures.

Please see the Do Your Part website for more information.
