As you gather up your suntan lotion and shades, make sure your room is ready for spring break, too.
For your safety and security, your room/house will be checked by the Housing and Residence Life staff and Security during break. During Spring Break, all residential facilities are opened on a limited basis. You are permitted to stay if you are pre-approved to remain on campus – see the instructions below.
Note: This information is related to residential closing. Academic classes and coursework must be followed per the instructor for that class. If there are any conflicts, please contact your RA or the Office of Housing and Residence Life for accommodations. Residential closing does not excuse a student from missing class.

Applying to Stay on Campus
In order to stay on campus for part or all of Spring Break, you must complete the late stay form on MyLynchburg by the deadline and be pre-approved by the Office of Housing and Residence Life. (Once you log in, click the “residential” link on the left, then the “Arrival form” tab.) If you are staying the whole break, which you are permitted to do, just indicate that on the Arrival form above. If you are a member of an athletic team or other group that is required to stay on campus, your coach, or advisor will be make a “Bucket List” for you. Please make sure that your coach or advisor includes you on their list(s). Spring Break closing is not a valid reason to miss class. If you have class on the night the residence halls are closing, you simply need to complete the Arrival form above to get approved. Residents found in the halls without registering will be assessed a $75 fine.
