Continuous Housing

Continuous Housing is available to enrolled undergraduate students who meet these criteria:


  • Students who have been declared independent for the purposes of financial aid,
  • Students in the Transfer Program,
  • Students living in Family Housing, or
  • Students with high financial need or identity-based concerns that make it impossible to secure alternative housing.


Currently-enrolled students who meet these criteria are eligible to remain on campus during winter break and/or summer break, provided that they apply and register in advance of the deadlines.  Students who were previously approved for Continuous Housing are still required to register to access housing for these breaks. Students who currently reside in family housing may stay in their 12-month housing assignment but must register through this process, as our goal is to know who remains on campus during the break.


The Continuous Housing application can be accessed by searching for “Continuous Housing Request” through the Princeton Service Portal


Continuous Housing portal is now closed for winter break housing.

Prox access to campus dormitories will be removed beginning Monday, December 25th, 2023, at noon.  Prox access to dorm rooms will be restored beginning on Friday, January 12, 2024.  All students, except for those who are part of the Continuous Housing program OR who are required to be on campus for varsity athletics competitions must vacate their campus dormitories during the winter break.
