Summer housing is offered as an extension of academic year housing.  All conditions of the Code of Student Conduct 2018-19 Student Handbook  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.

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/suites; 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 can not be searched for until that person has registered for summer housing.

Due to the limited space during temporary summer housing, please anticipate a roommate 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 frequently changing summer housing registrations.

Summer Fees and Billing

Summer housing rates are set for weekly stays (Sunday – Saturday).  Housing charges will not be adjusted to reflect stays that fall between the established weekly rate.

The summer housing rate for Summer 2019 is $110 a week (Sunday-Saturday) between Sunday May 26, 2019 until the fall semester move-in date of Saturday August 24, 2019.

Housing charges are determined by the arrival and departure dates listed on your  Summer Housing Registration 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.

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 (May 26, 2019 -August 16, 2019).  Any additional housing charges will be assessed to the individual student.
