Housing During Breaks

Evergreen’s academic year includes three major breaks when classes are not in session. Housing will remain open for all breaks.

Campus Services

Temporary suspension

Meal service in the Greenery and other campus venues is suspended during breaks and other campus services may be unavailable or limited. Check local schedules for hours.

Summer Housing

Dates, cost and how to apply

Summer residents must be registered for at least 2 Credit Hours in Summer Quarter. Residents must have all previous housing bills paid in full prior to the start of Summer Quarter.

Summer housing is an agreement for the full term, not a month-to-month rental agreement. There are no pro-rated refunds for moving out early. All summer housing residents are required to purchase a $300 meal plan.

Apply online using our StarRez Portal as soon as possible if you need summer housing. Summer spaces are first-come, first-served. We’ll activate a waiting list when we are full for summer, or on the priority deadline for the term, whichever is sooner.

After we receive your application, $200 maintenance and facilities fee and $50 application fee, you will receive email communications about the exact timing of your move to your summer space.

Check your Evergreen email regularly for important information about your summer application status.

Housing Charges for Winter and Spring Breaks

Housing charges are billed to your student account one quarter at a time and they do not include the winter and spring breaks. This is because housing is free during winter and spring breaks—as long as you are an on-campus resident before and after the break. See the Housing Agreement for details about agreement releases and break fees.

Staying Over Breaks

For continuing students

Break housing is available only to students who are continuing at Evergreen for the following quarter. If you are graduating or leaving Evergreen, you are not eligible to stay over break and you must be officially checked out of your room by 12:00 pm on Friday of Evaluation Week to avoid additional fees.

Room Inspections

What to expect

At the start and end of winter and spring breaks, facilities staff may enter your room and inspect it for maintenance and repairs. Staff will not open or move anything during an inspection. Please note that if policy violations are found, it may result in conduct action.

Room Vacancy

Preparing for a new roommate

If there is a vacancy in your apartment, be sure to keep your common spaces clean so it is ready for a new roommate to move in and feel welcome. Failure to leave your apartment properly prepared may result in conduct action and additional housing charges. A new roommate may arrive during check-in at the end of the break.

Checklist Before You Leave

Final To-dos

Take all of your stuff!

  • If you have live plants or fish, take them with you or arrange for their care.
  • Take out your garbage and recycling and remove any perishable food from your fridge.
  • Lock your windows and close the blinds. Notify staff immediately if your window lock is broken.
  • Leave your heat on. It will be controlled from a central location.
  • Unplug electronics and turn off the lights.
  • Lock your door.

Maintenance and Custodial Projects

Repairs over break

Maintenance and custodial projects often occur within the residential buildings during breaks. These projects may involve noise, utility outages, detours and entry into student rooms.

Moving Out During Break

Avoiding penalties

Please abide by the proper checkout procedure involving vacating and cleaning your bedroom, talking to your roommates about cleaning common areas and handing in your keys. You must move out by 12:00 pm on Friday of Evaluation Week of any quarter to avoid paying additional fees.

  • Failure to follow procedures may result in a $200 improper checkout fee, key charges and additional room rent.
  • Moving out before the end of the school year may result in an agreement break fee up to $700 except in cases of school withdrawal, graduation, internship or study abroad.
  • Moving out during winter or spring break may result in a checkout penalty.
