Students will be able to stay in Cornish Commons during the virtual portion of their semester, unless there is new guidance from the health authorities. At the end of the semester, current students will be able to contract for additional time at Cornish Commons; however, those costs are always separate from their academic year contract and will most likely have several restrictions in place. If you live on campus during this time, you may also access Nellie's during these two weeks.


The resident, at their own risk, may leave or store personal property in the residence hall during winter break, but not during summer break. Some services, including meal service, may be limited during breaks and closures.
