Effective Date of Policy:
August 17, 2022
Students may not occupy their on-campus rooms during Thanksgiving, Intersemester and Spring Break without advance approval by the Housing and Residence Life Office. During the Intersemester Break, students requesting to stay on campus must have a Daemen related reason to occupy their room (classes or athletics). Students are NOT permitted to reside in their rooms while the university is officially closed in December with the exception of International Students, residents of building 71 and Athletes. Students who are permitted to remain on campus do so at no additional cost as long as they have followed the registration process outlined by the Housing and Residence Life Office. If a student is found residing in the halls during the break period, fails to register by the predetermined deadline, and/or has not been granted permission from the Office of Housing and Residence Life, they will be assessed a $25 per day fee for the vacation period and have the incident referred to follow-up via the Student Code of Conduct. Students residing in off-site housing at Collegiate Village may occupy those spaces during the breaks, if permitted by Collegiate Village policy, but must vacate during the Summer months. Collegiate Village policies subject to change.
Purpose of Policy
To create and maintain an equitable environment where students have the optimal opportunity to succeed academically, personally, and professionally and where any and all Daemen University Community members feel safe, valued, and respected.
