Spring Break Housing

Do you qualify?

Space is limited for spring break housing. Priority will be given in the following order for those who request a place to stay:

  1. KE students who wish to stay in their apartment over Spring Break.
  2. International students (non-Canadian)
  3. Students employed on campus who have nowhere else to stay
  4. Students living outside the Midwest who have nowhere else to stay

Cost and fees

    • All dorm students will be required to pay a $25 non-refundable registration fee, regardless if you are staying with a friend in KE or staying with a host arranged by the office.
    • In addition there is a charge of $15 per night for those who need the housing office to arrange a spot for them to stay during break.
    • You can avoid a nightly housing charge if you arrange to live with a friend who is a current KE resident. You must still apply and register for housing.
    • Note: There will be a $100.00 fine plus the nightly charge of $15 to anyone who staying in KE without applying and receiving a placement. All Spring Break housing fees will be charged to your miscellaneous account.

Dining Halls

The dining halls will be closed during Spring Break. The last meal before spring break will be dinner at Knollcrest Dining Hall on Friday, March 11 and the first meal served after spring break will be dinner at Commons Dining Hall on Sunday, March 20.


Housing is available from Saturday, March 12 - Saturday, March 19.

The registration deadline for Spring Break housing is Wednesday, March 2. Applicants who apply after March 2 will be required to pay a $50 non-refundable registration fee. There is a fee of $50 for late registration. Sign up early to avoid late fees and to assure placement.

What to Pack

Clothes, personal hygiene items, and sheets for the bed are things you will need. The KE students that are opening up their apartment to you will have put away their sheets. You will NOT be able to get into your dorm room after 10:00am on Saturday. Those staying with hosts will have limited access to their pots, pans, and plates. However, there will be some additional cooking items at the deskie available for check out. Please try to limit what you bring to 2 suitcases. It is not necessary to bring over all your belongings. The dorms are locked and your items will be safe there. You do not need to bring cleaning supplies as they are available in the apartments. The van available for transportation fills quickly so it is limited to luggage and people.

Current Knollcrest East Residents

There is no charge for current KE residents to stay during break. However, registration is still required. You will remain in your current apartment over break. Students who are interested in hosting dorm students should contact Rachel Hamilton at rdm8@calvin.edu.

All Calvin College policies apply during Spring Break.
