Only those students who are registered with Residential Education will be permitted to remain on campus during the break.

Early Arrivals

Students requesting special move-in accommodations earlier than the assigned move-in days must complete the Transition Housing Request Form. Students will need to identify the reasoning for early arrival. Note that most requests for early arrival will not be granted.

We encourage students to plan their travel according to the Housing Calendar.

Late Stays

Students who need to stay on campus later than the official residence hall closing date and time must also fill out a Transition Housing Request Form. Students will need to identify the reasoning for late stay, and a University staff/faculty sponsor must approve of the request. Note that most requests for late stay will not be granted except for extenuating circumstances and approved groups staying late. All graduating seniors are automatically granted housing accommodations through graduation.

We encourage students to plan their travel according to the Housing Calendar.

Fall, Thanksgiving and Spring Breaks

During fall break, all the exterior doors to campus residence halls will remain locked 24-hours a day. Anyone found in the halls who is not registered will be charged $100 per day during the break period. If you are on campus during the break, you must carry your BU ID and key with you at all times.

Winter Break

All students must vacate their residence within 24-hours of their final examination or by the Friday after final exams, which ever comes first. Only those students who have been approved for housing during the break will be permitted in the halls (sports teams, academic requirements, international students, etc.). During the break all of campus housing will be locked. The exterior doors to all of Bucknell West will have their lock changed.

Students that have registered and received approval to stay on campus during the break who live in Bucknell West (the Mods) will be issued an exterior door key that will permit access to their facility. Exterior door keys may be picked up starting in early to mid-December through the last day of final exams from Housing Services (126 Vedder Hall ) 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday - Friday.
