Temporary Housing Options
Important: The University will close for a winter holiday on Friday, December 21, 2018 at 4:30pm, and re-open on Wednesday, January 2, 2019 at 8:30am. We generally do not recommend arriving on campus between December 22 and January 1, as the only service in operation will be Campus Security and Emergency Services.
QUIC offers extended hours of operation to ease student arrivals:
Wed. Jan. 2 – Fri. Jan. 4: 8:30 am – 7:30 pm
Sat. Jan. 5 – Sun. Jan. 6: 1:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Is it best to make reservations in advance when planning your arrival to Kingston. Some motels/hotels may offer discounted rates for students; it may be also a good idea to ask about their cancellation options if your plans change – please inquire directly with the provider at the time of booking.
