Students with a home address under 50 miles from St. Scholastica may fill out a waiver requesting to stay on campus for school or work-related purposes over break. Buildings reopen at 10:00 a.m. the day before classes resume. At the end of Spring Semester, you are required to have moved out of your housing by 24 hours after your last final.

How does the phone system work?
Each room or apartment on campus is equipped with a phone and line which operates independently from the internet lines in the room. On campus calls can be made by simply dialing the last four digits of an extension number. Phones ring in a single tone if an incoming call is from on campus, and ring in a double tone if an incoming call is from off campus. All lines have call waiting. A single beep indicates an incoming on campus call, and a double beep indicates an incoming off campus call. To use call waiting, hang up or press flash, then dial *61 to be transferred to the incoming call. To be transferred back to the original call, repeat the process.
How do I receive mail?
Each student is issued a mailbox in the mailroom, which is located in the Student Union of Tower Hall. Students will receive their mailbox numbers and combinations upon arrival on campus, and retain the same mailbox throughout their years at St. Scholastica. Mailboxes can be accessed 24 hours a day, and the mailroom window is open M-F 8:15 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Students can pick up their mail and packages, buy stamps, mail letters/packages, and send certified, insured, express, and priority mail.
