Notre Dame College has several breaks throughout the academic year. The residence halls remain open for the majority of campus breaks, although the campus dining hall closes for most breaks.
The residence halls remain open for the following campus breaks:
- Fall Break
- Thanksgiving Break
- Spring Break
- Easter Break
The residence halls CLOSE for the following campus breaks:
- Winter Break
- Summer Break
Students are expected to attend all afternoon and evening classes on the day a break begins regardless of the residence hall closing time. If you live in the residence halls and your class extends past the residence hall closing time, you will be given extended time to stay in the residence halls. Please contact the Office of Residence Life if you have a class that extends past closing times.
Students who are on “in season” sports team rosters will be permitted to stay over respective school breaks. This information must be communicated from coaches.
Please refer to the Notre Dame College Academic Calendar for specific dates for campus breaks.
Students who need to stay in campus housing when the residence halls close must be given approval by the Office of Residence Life. Permission to stay over these respective breaks will be only granted to students who have extenuating circumstances. Students who are granted permission to stay on campus during school breaks will be required to pay the appropriate fees for staying. Any student who has not received permission from the Office of Residence Life will be required to leave the residence halls.
