2015 Early Winter Return

Applications & more information about Early Winter Return will be available by mid-Fall semester 2015. 

The Barnard residence halls will be closed for Winter Break between 9am on Thursday, December 24, 2015, through 9am on Saturday, January 16, 2016. There are no extensions to the 9am, Thursday, December 24, 2015, check-out deadline.

Early Winter Return

Students with valid needs may apply for Early Winter Return, i.e. to return to campus housing early starting at 9am on Sunday, January 10, 2016. The application deadline will be Wednesday, December 2, 2015.

Early Winter Return is not guaranteed and approval should not be assumed. Students should plan accordingly in case their request is denied.

Students must provide documentation to support their request to return early to campus housing (ex. letters from job supervisors, etc). Students will only be considered if they are in housing for both the Fall & Spring semesters, have met the December 1 Spring payments deadline, and are in good standing with the College.

Students approved for Early Winter Return will be charged $100. A limited number of students involved in "mission critical" roles only (ex. January NSOP Orientation Leaders) may receive a waiver of the fee.

Winter Break Housing

An extremely limited number of students may be approved for housing during Winter Break prior to the Early Winter Return date above (between Thursday, December 24, 2015, and Sunday, January 10, 2016).

Students will be approved ONLY for pre-approved "mission critical" roles (ex. Admissions tour guides, winter sport varsity athletes with competitions during this time, etc).

Students will not be approved for individual personal reasons (ex. to work at jobs or internships, travel convenience, etc).

Students who fit into these pre-approved categories will need register for Winter Break Housing and provide documentation from their campus supervisors by Friday, November 20, 2015. Late registration will not be accepted. Students not approved for a waiver of housing charges for this time period will be charged $400 for Winter Break Housing.

During this time period, Plimpton will be the only residence hall available for approved students. Students who do not live in Plimpton must obtain permission from a Plimpton resident to use their room in order to be considered for Winter Break Housing.
