Spring Break

Spring Midterm Break Registration

In an effort to better serve the needs of our students, Residence Life allows on-campus residents to stay during designated breaks when the residence halls are closed during Spring Midterm break.  Residents ideally will be able to stay in their current housing assignment, but pending hall staffing, may be asked to relocate to another on-campus space for the duration of break.  A fee of $25.00 for each night will be assessed to the student’s Truman account to pay for staffing costs.   

Spring 2021 Midterm Break: 6pm March 5th to 10am March 14th
