All residence halls and apartments will close at noon on Wednesday, December 21. Unlike other vacation periods during the academic year, residents are not permitted to remain in their rooms or apartments over the break unless they are approved through the Winter Break Housing application process. The Winter Break Housing application will be available tomorrow on November 29. For reasons of safety and security, requests to return to campus prior to that date and time not associated with University approved activities will not be approved. However, students are permitted to leave their belongings in their room. University residence halls and apartments will remain closed until Saturday, January 14th at 9:00 am. Residence life would like to remind students to remove all perishable food items from storage areas, recycle and discard trash in appropriate receptacles, close and lock all windows, and leave heat set to ‘on’ and no higher than 72 degrees. 

In other news, Father Peter recently sent out an email explaining Villanova’s commitment to a community that is free from substance abuse. If you or someone you know struggles with drug and/or alcohol dependence, the University can help coordinate or provide counseling and education through a variety of programs. For students, the University offers services through the Dean of Students Office in Dougherty Hall, or the University Counseling Center and the Office of Health Promotion, both located in the Health Services Building. For members of the faculty and staff, the University provides an employee assistance program made available through Human Resources that includes referral and counseling services.
