Closing for the Holidays

Holiday Closing

Students are expected to complete the Winter Break Closing Process and vacate their rooms/college housing before the deadline to avoid receiving a late fee and/or student conduct sanctions.

Winter Break Check List

Please note, unless you are not returning or graduating LaGrange College at the end of the semester, you do not need to fully move out of your space – just bring what you need and any valuable items. There is a re-entry fee if you need to return for forgotten items. If you are only taking essentials or fully moving out, we encourage you to begin packing your things prior to finals to avoid creating additional stress.
