Spring Break is extended for all students until Monday, March 23, 2020.
Governors State University will move to continuity of instruction plans for classes beginning Monday, March 23. These alternative modes of instructional delivery will continue through the remainder of the spring semester. GSU will continue to provide information on the implementation of these measures designed to address the educational and safety needs of our campus community.

IF YOU LEAVE
If you are interested in cancelling your housing contract, given that the University has moved to all online courses until the end of the spring 2020 term, please complete the Petition for Contract Release.

Here are the steps to complete the Petition:
• Log in to your GSU Student Portal
• Go to the left-hand menu, under Housing, click on Take Care of Business
• Scroll down the Take Care of Business page, click on the application that is called “Petition for Contract Release”
• Complete and submit the application
Once you submit the Petition, Housing will respond within 2-3 business days with an answer regarding your moveout date, Housing/Meal Plan charges, and any further information. Please be patient with our timeline as we are working to assist all of our resident students with the nation’s and University’s current climate.
