Sticking around for winter break? Need a place to stay? Purdue University Residences offers housing.Winter Break Housing

University Residences will be closed Monday, December 16 at 12 p.m. (noon) – Thursday, January 9 at 8 a.m. for Winter Break. Room only-interim housing is available to students wishing to stay during the break for an additional charge of $500, as room and board charges do not cover this scheduled vacation period (with the exception of University Residences apartments).

Students living in University Residences who wish to stay over the break may remain in their current room for an additional charge of  $500. The deadline to sign up for Winter Break housing is December 16, 2019. Pre-registration is required for anyone staying over break. 

Interim housing is not available to students who are graduating in December or not returning in the spring. Meal service will be available during Winter Break at the All American Dining Room - lunch and dinner hours to be determined. Payments can be made by using BoilerExpress, Dining Dollars or debit/credit card. 

Behavioral guidelines will be the same as during the academic semester, as defined here.

Registration constitutes binding acceptance of the interim housing agreement. The student acknowledges they will be billed $500 (when applicable) for the entire winter break when the registration form is completed and terms and conditions are accepted. No refunds will be offered after November 30, 2019. Students will see this additional charge on their MyPurdue account in January 2020.
