International House (I-House) will be the only residence hall open during winter break next year.
In past years, both I-House and Granville-Grossman Residential Commons (GGRC) have stayed open during both spring and winter breaks.
This is the first time that GGRC will be closed to students since it opened in 2009. According to the News Office, it will stay closed over break to allow for “much-needed” maintenance of the building, although it will likely be open during breaks again in the future.
Fewer than 100 students have stayed in housing over winter break in past years. The News Office stated that there is enough space in I-House to accommodate anyone staying during break.
It has not yet been announced if GGRC will remain open during spring break in 2018.
