2021 Holiday Break Housing

Holiday Break Housing runs from December 16 at 10 a.m. through January 2 at noon. No applications will be accepted after December 17 at noon.

Holiday Break Housing is a privilege that is offered to assist current residential students (reside in on-campus housing for Fall 2021 and are registered for Winter and/or Spring semester classes on the Forest Grove or Hillsboro campuses) who need to remain in on-campus housing the time period that the residence halls are closed for Winter Break.

Due to the university being closed and staff availability during this time period, Holiday Break Housing has a limited capacity. 

Important things to know:

  • Holiday Housing Dates: Thursday, December 16 at 10am - January 2 at Noon.
  • Holiday Housing Costs: There are no additional costs but housing is limited.
  • University Services: There are very limited services available over the Holiday break. University Offices are closed from December 24 – January 1.
