2012 Spring Break Closing Procedures
All University residences will close on Friday, March 2, 2012, at 6:00 p.m. and will re-open on Sunday,
March 11, 2012, at 9:00 a.m. All students must vacate University housing by 6:00 p.m. on Friday,
March 2, 2012, unless they have an approved housing extension.
Housing extensions for students living in the resident halls will be granted only for students who need
temporary housing for University reasons or to assist with travel arrangements. Students
requesting a housing extension must submit their request no later than February 17, 2012. No exceptions
will be made after this date without incurring additional late fees.
To request a housing extension for this or any University break period (Thanksgiving, Winter Break,
Spring Break or End-of-the-Year Closing), students can submit requests on-line through the
MyLaSalle Portal on the Life at La Salle tab in the Living channel.
Academic, department and program chairs/coaches/supervisors should submit a list of approved
students participating in academic or other University related events. The list of students should
contain the student's name, ID #, and their purpose for staying beyond the deadline date for any
applicable periods. Your list is for reference purpose only and does not mean a student has been
submitted for an extension request. As many students stay for various reasons and needs, each student
must submit their own requests. We use the information you provide to verify specific requests.
A list of on-call emergency personnel will be available for Spring Break on the “Residential
Living” portal group for the on-call Administrative Services, Security and Community Development staff.
