Contract 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 Contract Extension. There are 2 ways to be approved for a Contract Extension:

  1. A University office/department can request an extension on behalf of a student.
  2. A student can request an individual extension using the form below. Note: Submission of this form does not constitute approval. In addition, students must submit a new contract extension form for each individual break by the designated application deadline listed below.
    • Criteria for approval, include, but are not limited to, financial, medical, or travel emergencies as well international student travel implications.

If approved, the following conditions exist for ALL students staying in their Residence Hall during break closures:

  • There is an $80 per day rate for approved contract extensions (for individual requests ONLY).
  • Extension is granted for only the specified student (not any roommates or suite mates).
  • No guests are permitted except for other Loyola students with an approved contract extension.
  • All Loyola University Maryland policies are in effect.
  • Any violations of the Loyola University Maryland Community Standards during the contract extension will result in sanctions, as well as being prohibited from receiving contract extensions in the future.
  • Failure to comply with the above conditions could result in immediate suspension of the contract extension.
