Break Housing

Simpson College’s residence halls and college-owned Greek buildings close for two breaks during the year: Winter and Spring.  The dates for these can be found here: Important Dates 2018 - 2019.  Please know that during all breaks, even Fall and Thanksgiving, dining services will not be available.

For Winter Break, Barker, Kresge, Buxton, Picken, KKG, KTP, ATO, SAE, and LXA will be closed from 12pm on Saturday, March 9, until 9am on Sunday, March 17, for break.  During this time, only students living in these buildings 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, we will be in touch with your coach or advisor 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.
