Winter Break

McMinnville Campus College Housing will close for Winter Break at noon on Saturday, December 17 and will reopen on Monday, January 2.

Students who must be on campus for any portion of the winter break are required to complete the Holiday Break Form, located on the Residence Life website ( Students must be approved to be on campus for the break. There will be no charge for housing over the break if a student is approved.

In order to guarantee housing access, please sign up for access by noon on Friday, December 16. No changes will be allowed after this date. If students need housing after this date they will need to make arrangements off campus.

Break Information:

During this time there will be a limited number of Resident Advisors on campus. College Public Safety (CPS) will be available 24 hours a day during the break and can be reached at 503-883-7233(SAFE).

College dining will be closed during the break. The last meal served will be lunch on Friday, December 16. Dillin will reopen on Sunday, January 1 for dinner.

Students are required to carry their student ID and keys at all times. Guests MUST be escorted at all times. If students have a guest, they must meet them at the front door, and escort them to their room. When the guest leaves, students must escort them out of the building.

By signing up for housing during the break I acknowledge that College Housing is closed, that no RA is on duty, and despite these risks, I knowingly accept responsibility for my own safety, and for the care of my personal property. I accept all conditions described above, including but not limited to carrying my student ID and escorting all guests, and agree to follow all college policies during the break.

Interested in becoming an RA?

Consider registering for the Resident Advisor Training Class (IDST 060) for Jan or Spring Term. Although the course is not a prerequisite for becoming an RA, it will provide greater knowledge about the position and allow you to gain additional leadership skills in an experiential-learning focused class. Ask your RA for further details.

Supporting yourselves and others

If you are concerned about the well-being of a friend you are encouraged to submit a care report. Care reports are directed to the Dean of Students’ Office and an appropriate course of follow-up is conducted for each report. This is one way that Linfield students can take care of each other in a time need.

There are many resources available to you and your friends:

  • Counseling Services (Student Health and Wellness Center) - 503.883.2535
  • Meditation or Prayer Room - Riley Hall, Room 208, Open through Friday noon
  • Chaplain - Call 503.883.2278 for an appointment
