Housing & Residential Living

Break and Summer Housing

Limited housing is available during the College's winter and spring breaks for students who are international, live at least 450 miles from Northfield, taking courses at St. Olaf that extend past the end of our term, athletic team members with authorization from the Athletic Department, students working at least 20 hours per week on campus, and seniors working on their comprehensive exercises. Students who wish to stay must find a resident of a hall designated for break housing and receive permission from the current occupant to reside in the room during break. Students are charged for the use of the room only and no food service is provided. Applications for break housing are available from the Residential Life Office one month prior to the break.

Cassat and Evans Halls are designated for Winter and Spring Break housing. This information is included in the Room Draw Policy. Students residing in the residence halls designated for use as Break Housing should be aware that their rooms may be used to house students approved to live in Break Housing. All upper class students who draw into Break Housing areas are required to allow their rooms to be used by students needing Break Housing. Although first year students are not required to allow their rooms to be used for break housing, they also are not discouraged. Storage will be provided free of charge to students who are required to let someone use their room and don't want to leave personal belongings in their room.

Current full-time students who will be enrolled at Carleton during the next academic year and who have a paid position at Carleton College which averages a minimum of 20-hours per week are eligible to live in College-owned housing for the summer. Space is limited and housing for the summer is not guaranteed. Applications for the entire summer receive first consideration. Applications for summer housing are available on line or from the Office of Residential Life.
