Break Housing (Metro)

Summer Housing

Summer Housing is not offered at FDU for Summer 2020.

Winter Break Housing

Not staying for Winter Break, but returning for Spring 2021

You must vacate your residence hall room by 6 PM on Tuesday, November 24, 2020.

  • During the winter recess, we do require all electric equipment be unplugged. Remember to unplug, defrost, and leave your refrigerator door open. University staff typically enters rooms over break for health and safety checks and routine maintenance.
  • Please secure or take home any valuables to minimize the chance of theft over the break. You do not have to remove your belongings over the winter break; however, you will have no access to your residence hall room during the break period.
  • Students found on campus without prior approval will be considered trespassing, face disciplinary action, charged the applicable rate and removed from university property.
  • If your room has an empty bed, be aware that someone may be assigned to that space at any time over the break. Make sure that your possessions only occupy the portion of the space you are contracted for (i.e. remove items from the extra closet, clear out all dresser drawers, separate and remove everything from spare bed, etc.).

Not returning for Spring 2021

If you are not staying on-campus for Spring semester, you are not eligible for Winter Break housing. If you will not be returning to campus for Spring 2021, you must complete a Cancellation Request Application by logging into MyHousing.

Your cancellation request is not approved until you receive official notification.

If your cancellation request is approved:

You must schedule a check-out inspection with your Resident Assistant. Failure to do so will result in a $75 improper checkout fee. You are responsible for contacting Mail Services (SUB basement) and completing a Change of Address Form prior to leaving campus. You must vacate your residence hall room by Tuesday, November 24, 2002, at 6:00 PM.
