Trinity Campus in fall

Residence halls close at 12:00 noon Saturday, November 23, and reopen Sunday, December 1 at 8:00 a.m. For your convenience, we offer break housing and a one-day-early return option.


  • Stay past Saturday or return more than one day early before halls reopen? You will need to sign up for break housing. The flat-rate charge for the week is $156.

GGP students, exchange students whose contracts include Thanksgiving break, and current RAs will not be charged, but must still sign up for building access / security reasons.
