    All Carleton housing is open during the school year. Additionally, limited housing is available during the winter and spring breaks and during the summer months (at a nominal fee). Break housing is only available for international students, students who live at least 450 miles away, students taking courses at St. Olaf, or students who have 20-hour-per-week jobs on campus. The dining halls are not open during the breaks. The break housing fee is for room only.
