Residence Hall Break Extension Requests

Break Extensions 

Loyola University Maryland Residence Halls close for all major break periods. Students are ONLY permitted to stay in their residence hall room if they have an approved Break Extension

Below is a list of reasons why a Break Extension is typically approved by Student Life: 

Financial Need
Medical Emergencies/Accommodations
Travel Emergencies (change of flight, weather delay) 
International Student Travel 
Academic Requirement

There is an $80/night charge for approved Early Arrivals and Break Extensions. Students who are staying over break due to demonstrated financial need may be able to request to have this charge waived within their request.

If you are not approved for a Break Extension, it is expected that you will not be within the residence halls during the break periods. Please plan accordingly.

As you are planning to stay, please be mindful that the University is closed during break periods.  All campus offices including dining services, mail services, and shuttle services are all unavailable throughout breaks.   Campus Police is available 24/7 during breaks for emergencies at 410-617-5010.
