Summer Housing Info

Summer housing is available in Harriett Hall and The Gates for approximately 60 students. For summer, Gates residents may not be in their academic year apartment. Summer residents will live in double rooms with a bathroom shared with other students in the suite.

To be eligible for summer housing, students must be in financial good standing with the Business Office, registered for Fall classes (recent graduates are not eligible) and fit one of four criteria:

  • Employed full-time by the University during the period of residence
  • Conducting research for a faculty member (approved by Provost)
  • International home address
  • Participating in the Summer Enrichment Program (SEP)

Students who fall out of compliance with any one of the required criteria will be asked to vacate summer housing within 48 hours.

Summer residence halls will be staffed with Resident Assistants (Click here for Summer RA Application Information) , and Office of Residential Life policies and procedures remain in effect throughout the summer term. Summer housing is a privilege, and violations of policy will likely result in termination of a student's housing for the rest of the summer. 


Application Dates and Deadlines

Applications due by Saturday, April 15, 2017. Late applicants will be accepted and housed if space is available. Students who do not meet one of the above criteria will be considered after the applications everyone else.

Summer housing residents will remain May Term spaces until ORL designates a time that they will begin moving into their assigned summer spaces (see Moving Timeline below). 

Summer Charges/Rent

The cost of summer housing rent is billed monthly on an "all-or-nothing" basis. A student is staying for all or part of the month will pay the entire month's rent. Summer Rent will be reported to the Business Office within the first five days of the month of residence and will be applied to student accounts as per Business Office procedures.
