Break Housing

Winter Break 2020-21:

Simpson College’s residence halls and college-owned Greek buildings close for just winter break during the year.  Please know that during all breaks, 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 Wednesday, November 25, until 9am on Sunday, January 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/night while in break housing, with a maximum charge of $500.  Billing will applies to nights between Dec. 9 and Jan. 17.  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. Students with academic necessity to stay on campus during finals week will also not be charged.  Students who would like to quarantine on campus may stay free-of-charge until Wednesday, Dec. 9.

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 there is no confirmation sent.  If you complete the form, you're set.  Please also 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.
