The Residence Hall Winter Break Shut-Down (6th annual) is a team effort among Facilities Services, Residential Life, Public Safety and the Office of Sustainability. All unsupervised residence hall rooms are checked to be sure that lights are off, heat is turned down, appliances are off and windows are closed for the month-long winter break.
