Winter Break Housing

DESIGNATED WINTER BREAK HOUSING

Henry S. Drinker House, Yarnall, and all upper-calss apartments at HCA are the designated Winter Break Housing dorms.

THIS MEANS THAT IF YOU CHOOSE TO LIVE IN ONE OF THESE BUILDINGS YOU UNDERSTAND AND WILLINGLY ACCEPT THAT APPROVED STUDENTS WILL BE LIVING IN YOUR HOUSING DURING THE WINTER BREAK.

During the Winter Break, housing is provided for approved athletes, International students who cannot go home for the break, students who are taking classes at Penn that begin before classes at Haverford do, and in cases of extenuating circumstances.   Students who, during Spring Room Draw, or the Waiting List, apply for and choose housing in designated winter break housing dorms are responsible for knowing, understanding and agreeing to abide by the guidelines and policies of this housing.  Each November, year-round and winter break residents will receive information and instructions about winter break housing, how it works and who will be living in these dorms, from the Residential Life Office, and for those living in residence halls that will be occupied by athletes from the Athletics Department.

new this year

As first announced before Spring Room Draw 2015, six additional upper-class buildings at HCA (# 15, 30, 31, 35, 46, and 50) have been designated as being Winter Break Housing and will be used only as needed.

After filling the regular Winter Break housing buildings at HCA #10, 11, 14, 18, 19 and 23 we anticipate filling these new additional buildings, if and only as needed, in the following order: HCA #15, 31, 35, 50, 46, and then 30.

Please note that this is subject to change.   The need to expand winter break housing is due to some anticipated new initiatives that are expected to take place over the winter break.
