For Thanksgiving break, students must vacate the Oakland University residence halls by 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 23 and may not return until 10 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 27.

The closing procedures for OU Housing students were laid out in an email sent out by University Housing on Nov. 8.

If a student lives outside of the metro-Detroit area or work throughout break, exceptions to stay can be granted. Students must submit proper documentation to the Housing Office by 5 p.m. on Nov. 16.

Students who need to pick up mail will be unable to do so after 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 23. This includes checking out moving bins or flat beds, as these services are provided by the mail desk. The desk will reopen at 3 p.m. on Nov 27.

Vandenberg Dining Center closes at 2 p.m. on Nov 23. and will not reopen until 4 p.m. on Nov. 27. The Pioneer Food Court in the Oakland Center will remain open until 6 p.m. on Nov 23.
