Residence Life and Housing

Winter Break Policies and Procedures

General

All Wright State University Residence Life and Housing policies will remain in effect during any university breaks. In all buildings, 24-hour quiet hours are in effect during finals weeks. Regular quiet hours will be observed during the break.

Housing and maintenance staff may enter any apartments or rooms during the break to complete preventative maintenance and outstanding work orders, as well as fire/health/safety checks. Please call in maintenance requests to 937-775-4239 or 937-775-4141.

If you are NOT returning after break, schedule a check-out appointment at the Residence Life and Housing Office by calling 937-775-3372 and stop by to pick up a checkout packet. If you’re not withdrawing, complete a request for release via your housing account in WINGS Express, and know you may be held to contract if not approved.

If you have a vacant bed in your room or apartment, please clear off the desk, bed, and dresser. Maintenance will be in to make sure all empty beds are ready for new residents. Furniture that is not cleared off will result in a fine billed back to the current residents. If former roommates have left items behind, please call your maintenance office 937-775-4239 or 937-775-4141 to have them removed.


Residence Hall Residents

The residence halls will close for winter break. Residents wanting to live on campus for the winter break need to complete a break agreement on the Wright State Residence Life and Housing website. Fill out the winter break housing request form. Once the form is submitted, your Wright1 Card will be given winter break permissions. The cost for the break is $225 and it will be billed to your Wright State account. 

Residents without a break housing agreement will not be allowed back into the building until the next semester. All personal items may be left in the rooms during the break, but be sure to take all belongings you will need.
