UP to offer Christmas housing

University Park will be housing students who are unable to go home during the four-week Christmas break.

Students staying at UP for Christmas break will check in on Dec. 13 and move out on Jan. 12. For students living overseas or thousands miles of away, housing for Christmas break is a huge blessing.

UP is offering Christmas break housing for a flat rate of $300. This rate will allow students to come and go over the break without having to check-in and out every time they go out of town. Free internet, cable, laundry and utilities are all included.

Students may be placed in either a two or four-bedroom apartment, depending on availability. Students will be asked to bring their own bedding, linens, kitchen items, televisions and other electronics.

Not every student will need housing over Christmas break as most will be going home to go spend time with their family. However, the ability to see family and friends is not as easy for some as it may be for others.

“Last year I was not able to go home for all of Christmas break due to my work schedule, and I needed a place to stay,” said Karen Kosarek, graduate elementary education major from Sugarland. “I heard that University Park was housing students over the break so I took advantage of the opportunity to stay at UP.”

Meghan Lawrence, junior psychology major from Seattle, will return home from Christmas break, however, she said it’s helpful that UP will allow students to stay over Christmas.

“I think it’s awesome that UP offers this service over Christmas break for the international students who may not be able to travel home over the holidays,” said Lawrence.

In order to secure Christmas break housing students must come to University Park Clubhouse and fill out a Christmas housing form. Payment will be due Dec. 13. Any questions can be emailed to
