Winter Break Housing

Washakie Dining Center closes at 7 p.m. on Friday, December 16, 2016 and the Residence Halls close at Noon, Saturday, December 17, 2016.

The Residence Halls will re-open at 8 a.m. on Friday, January 20, 2017. Washakie Dining Center will re-open at 11am on that same day.

Winter Break housing is available on an extremely limited basis in White and Hill halls. Approval is based on documented need such as participation in university related activities, work responsibilities, or other demonstrated need presented by the applicant.

Charges apply to winter break housing based on hall and will be applied to the student account. Those housed in their own double room in White Hall will be charged the double occupancy rate. Students from other halls and the Honors House will be housed in Single rooms in Hill Hall.

The room rates are:

  • $28.50 per night for Single occupancy
  • $19.20 per night for Double occupancy


Those approved by the department to stay over Winter Break need to fill out the contract and indicate the UW activity they will be involved in. They will be notified if they have been approved to stay and they then need to come in person to see Betty in the Washakie Office by December 9, 2016 to get their combo and/or their card encoded for the front doors and room; charges will be applied to the student account-charges will be calculated for nights stayed between 12/17/16 through 1/18/17.

Because the halls will not be staffed during this time, residents will not have access to their rooms for safety and security reasons. Students should take everything they need over break when they leave after their finals.

Apply here for winter break housing (deadline to apply is Friday, December 2, 2016).
