Summer housing is offered as an extension of academic year housing for enrolled students who will be engaged in a College sponsored or approved program (e.g. research, coursework, internship, employment).  All conditions of the Code of Student Conduct and the academic year Housing Contract apply to students living in residence over the summer.  Summer housing residents are responsible for adhering to the policies and procedures described in these publications and the specific summer housing terms and conditions published by the Office of Residence Life. Additional COVID-specific policies and operational conditions will be communicated as necessary and must be followed for the safety and well-being of our campus community.

Summer Housing is designed to be a more independent experience for students. Students residing in college housing should be prepared to take greater responsibility for cooking and cleaning for themselves, accessing local services, and using available resources to meet their own needs. Reflecting the smaller number of students on campus each summer, College services and hours of operation for many offices are limited.  In addition, the COVID mitigation strategies deployed during the Spring semester (e.g. weekly testing for all students, daily symptom checker) will be discontinued or reduced in scope. Student Involvement and Residence Life will offer program opportunities for students and we anticipate that while here, students’ priority will be their research, coursework, internship, campus job, etc.

  • Priority consideration for summer housing assignments  and roommates will be given to those who register by the Priority Deadline (May 14th). After that date, requests will be accommodated in the order they are received as space is available.

Summer Roommates

You may specify a preference of room type (not building) and roommate(s) through MyHousing; however, specific requests cannot be guaranteed. The majority of summer rooms are in doubles and/or apartment-style units; thus, you are encouraged to identify a potential roommate(s).

Roommates should be identified through the Room Selection Tab and Roommate/Suitemate drop down in MyHousing. Only FULLY MATCHED roommate groups will be housed together.  A roommate cannot be found in search until that person has applied for summer housing.

Depending on the number of applications, students should anticipate the possibility of a roommate or suitemate even if you have requested a single space for summer. Roommate names may not be available at the time your assignment is confirmed due to changing summer housing registrations.

Summer Fees and Billing

Summer housing rates are set for weekly stays (Sunday – Saturday).

The summer housing rate for Summer 2021 is $118 a week (Sunday-Saturday) between Sunday May 30, 2021 until the fall semester move-in date of Saturday August 28, 2021. (Students continuing directly from Spring into Summer Housing for Summer I will not be charged for the week of May 30th – June 5th).

Housing charges are determined by the arrival and departure dates listed on your  Summer Housing Application in your MyHousing dashboard.  You must vacate housing no later than the departure date for which you have registered.  Occupancy of summer housing is defined as possession of a room key and/or occupancy of a residence hall space by self and/or belongings. You should expect to incur additional housing charges for any period:

  • beyond your registered departure dates
  • your belongings remain in your summer room
  • your keys are not returned

Requests for refunds/credits based on a change to departure dates that occur after the first day of occupancy must be made in writing prior to your departure from summer housing.

You are individually billed for summer housing unless the Office of Residence Life receives written approval from a sponsoring department that the fees are being covered by that department’s account. You would then see both a charge and credit on your student account.

Housing fees paid by the EXCEL research program, the Gateway Career Center internship program, or other sponsored departmental programs may only be applied to the summer housing term (June 5th, 2021 – August 14, 2021).  Any additional housing charges will be assessed to the individual student.

If you will have a car that is not currently registered on campus, you should contact Public Safety for a free temporary permit. During the summer, students may park in any student lot.
