Spring Break Housing

The residence halls close for Spring Break on Saturday, FEBRUARY 29,2020 at noon and will reopen after Spring Break on Sunday, MARCH 15, 2020 at noon.

Limited Break Housing is available in Alumni Hall or Uptown East Apartments Building 2 for the following reasons:

  • International Students
  • VU athletes in mid-season with practice and/or games over break
  • Students whose home is 500 or more miles from Valparaiso
  • Students participating in a credit-bearing activity such as student teaching, internship, or co-op
  • Students participating in a VU sponsored service trip

Students ARE NOT automatically eligible for break housing if they hold an on or off-campus job that is not directly associated with a credit-bearing academic program.

If you do not meet any of the above criteria for Break Housing, you may submit a request based on an “Other” type of reason. PLEASE NOTE that if you are approved for Break Housing for non-University related reason(s), you will be charged a $25 per night fee for utilizing University Break Housing.

Break Housing applications are available on your Housing Self-Service. To access your Housing Self-Service page log onto DataVU then select “Housing Self-Service.” Once on your Housing Self-Service page, select the “Applications” tab and then select the “Spring Break Housing Application.”
