More than 250 students spent some or all of winter break in campus housing, according to Director of Housing and Residence Life Tara Hart.
The total number, 254, is more than the 144 students who received housing over Thanksgiving break. However, this does not represent the number of students that stayed on campus throughout the breaks, Hart added.
“It includes those who requested late stay or early return for travel arrangements,” Hart said. According to Hart, HRL chooses which dormitories stay open during breaks. Boland and Xavier halls in addition to Ora and Turrell Manors were open this past break.
“Since students are required to remain in either their room or the space of a (friend’s) in the open building, we generally try to select a larger building or two to be sure we can meet the need,” Hart said.
Junior Alexis Finley lives off campus but said she worked on campus during the break.
“The atmosphere around Seton Hall was very dull,” Finley said.
