Break Housing

Simpson College’s residence halls and college-owned Greek buildings close for four breaks during the year: Fall, Thanksgiving, Winter, and Spring.  The dates for these can be found here: http://simpson.edu/reslife/important-dates/.

Thanksgiving Break Closing

Barker, Kresge, Buxton, Picken, KKG, KTP, ATO, SAE, and LXA will be closed from 10pm on Tuesday, November 25 until 12pm on Sunday, November 30 for break.  During this time, only students who request permission or have a college-sponsored and certified reason to stay on campus will be permitted in these buildings.

Students who request to stay are charged $15/day while in break housing.  If you are a student-athlete needing to stay over break, I will be in touch with your coach and you do not have to fill out this form.  If you are an international student, please still fill out the form, but you will not be charged for staying on campus. 

If you live more than a 6 hour drive from Simpson, you will be allowed one free travel day.  Students farther than 12 hours drive will be allowed two free travel days.

To request to stay on campus for break, please use this form.  Please note that food services will be closed during this break period, so if you choose to stay, you will need to provide your own meals.
