The winter break officially begins Sunday, February 16, 2014.
The halls do not close over breaks, so residents can come and go as they wish. However, while the residence halls will be locked over break as they are during the regular academic session, we encourage you to take all valuables with you. Before leaving, please make sure you do the following (staff members will be inspecting all rooms):
1. Let your RA know if you will be staying over break.
2. Lock windows & leave curtains/blinds open for passive heating & security.
3. Remove ALL trash & recyclables from the room. Please ensure that the room is easily accessible in case maintenance staff must enter to make repairs or to perform routine maintenance work.
4. Turn off all lights.
5. Lock door(s).
6. Unplug all electronics (stereos, televisions, DVD players, etc).
Microfridges and refrigerators may remain plugged in for this break.
Vehicles with a valid residential parking sticker must park in the last row of lot G13 between the "long term parking" signs if the vehicle will be on campus over break while you are gone. If you will be staying on campus through the break, you may park in the residential lots, but follow the snow parking bans as directed. Snow bans will be communicated via the snow ban parking line, phone number 228-8005, after 4pm.
Residential dining room closes at 1pm Sat., Feb.15. Reopens at 4pm on Sunday, February 23. Open limited hours during break; M-F: 7-9am, 11am-1pm, 4-6pm. Sat & Sun: 10am-1pm, 4-6pm. Use Husky Bucks, meal dollars, cash and credit.
Residents of halls may allow a guest to stay with them over break; however, guests will not have card access to any of the buildings, the roommate(s) must agree to the guest staying, and the guest may not stay for more than three nights in a 14 day period. Please refer to guidelines outlined in the Residence Hall Policies at www.usm.maine.edu/reslife/residence-hall-policies.
