Breaks and Holidays

Break Access

If you are assigned to a Residence Hall, you will be required to leave the premises during Winter and Spring Breaks. Please reference the break dates in the Housing contract page. Contact your Residence Life Office for questions regarding access during breaks.

Services During Breaks

Cleaning services will be provided only during the first week of Winter Break. No cleaning services will be scheduled during Spring Break.

Holiday Cleaning Schedules

During a University holiday, your cleaning service will be provided on an adjusted schedule. If the holiday falls on a Friday, the service will occur during the prior week. If the holiday falls on a Monday, the service will occur during the following week. Cleaning service times will be shorter during holidays in order to service all units within a shorter time frame.


Lofts and Bunking

Loft and Bunking services are not available except when the University has assigned additional students to a specific room to meet guarantees.

Resident Personal Property Damage Claims

A Personal Property Damage Claim Form may be submitted for consideration when personal property damage has occurred as a result of staff negligence and/or facility malfunction.


Molds are microscopic organisms that grow naturally – particularly in warm, damp, humid conditions where there is little air movement. There are hundreds of thousands of variations of mold, and it can grow anywhere: on walls, ceilings, carpets, or furniture. Often referred to as “mildew,” it is impossible to create an entirely mold-free space. However, you can control the amount of mold in your environment by taking appropriate measures.

Bed Bugs

HDH takes bed bug discoveries very seriously. If you think you have bed bugs, call us immediately at 858.534.2600. Find out more about education, prevention, and remediation.
