Dear Pfoho,


I'll be conducting room inspection starting next Wednesday, Dec 20th after 9am.  If there are any violations you'll be notify and responsible to correct them as soon as you get back from break. Items such as candles or other combustibles will be confiscated on the spot.


Students staying during Winter Break:

During the period of time that you have been approved to live in residence, you are held responsible for knowing and abiding by all College policies set forth in the Harvard College Handbook for Students.  The policies outlined in here extend to the Winter Break period as well with the following exception:  During Winter Break students are not allowed to have overnight guests or parties in the dorm. Any student found in residence during the Winter Break period without permission will be reported to the Resident Dean and is subject to action by the Administrative Board of the College.   


Mail forwarding:

The Student Mail Forwarding Center will not be accepting forwarding orders for Winter Break, 12/21/16-1/15/17. Any forwarding orders that are submitted for Winter Break will not be process. Please contact Harvard Mail Services with any questions.

We’ll still receive packages  between Tuesday, Dec 26th and Friday, Dec 29th.  


Lastly, make sure to close your storm windows and lower your radiator knob to the snowflake setting if you're gone for the entire break.
