Summer Housing 2021


May Intersession 2021: Minor Hall

Summer First Term 2021: RH2 

Summer Second Term 2021: RH2 Minor Hall

August Intersession 2021: Student housing for August Intersession is available only to students who have rooms reserved on campus for 2021-22. Students will be assigned to those rooms for August Intersession, if possible. Assignments in other locations will be given to students whose 2021-22 rooms are not available during August Intersession due to custodial and/or facilities work. August Intersession residents must remain enrolled for the duration of August Intersession. Any student who withdraws prior to or during August Intersession will be required to vacate student housing, no exceptions.

Application Information

Each session requires a separate application process. However, payment of the non-refundable $30 application fee is required only once. All Summer Application fees will be billed directly to the student’s Bursar account. If you are living on campus for more than one summer term, we encourage you to complete all applications at once.

Applications open for 2021 on April 1, 2021 at 9:00am CT.

Due to limited housing options available during summer, we do not provide an opportunity for you to request a roommate prior to selecting a room. If you have a preferred roommate in mind, the two of you should select your room at the same time.

The $30 application fee is non-refundable, even if you cancel your contract prior to the deadline listed below. Please be aware that failure to pay the application fee that is posted to your bursar account may affect your ability to register for Fall 2021 or result in a hold placed on your Fall 2021 schedule.

You will be able to select your room for each term (May Intersession, Summer First Term, and Summer Second Term). If you are attending multiple terms, you should select the same room for all; otherwise, you will be required to move between terms. If you are attending Summer Full Term, you should complete both the Summer First Term and Summer Second Term applications and select the same room within each application.

Once you’ve selected a room, you may use the optional room change section in the application to view other spaces available to you and select one of those spaces if you’d like. Once again, if you are attending multiple terms, please remember to room change into the same room for all terms. Room change closes for each term three business days prior to move in. Room changes may be available after move in. Contact your Community Coordinator if interested.

Application Instructions:

  1. Log into the student housing portal.
  2. Select Summer, and then select the term.
  3. Complete all sections, including signing the electronic contract, paying the application fee, and selecting a room (May Intersession, Summer First Term, and Summer Second Term only).

Move In/Check Out

You will need your student ID for move in. Your student ID serves as your building and room key. If you do not have one, go to the student ID center prior to arrival to your building or apartment.

Online Check-in: We are asking all residents to complete online Check-in through the Student Housing Portal in order to gain access to their summer housing assignment. Online Check-in should be done once the student is on campus. To complete online Check-in, please log into the Student Housing Portal and select ‘Check-in’ from the red menu bar. From there you will select the appropriate summer term housing assignment, complete the attestation statement, and then check yourself in.

Online Checkout: All students must complete online Checkout through the Student Housing Portal, whether they are leaving campus or if they will be checking in for another summer term in Student Housing. Students who are checking in for another summer term must complete the online Checkout process prior to checking in for their next summer term and should use the Express Checkout option if they will remain in the same room.

Students must login to the Student Housing Portal and select Checkout from the red menu bar. They will then be directed to choose either Express Checkout or In-person Checkout during the online Checkout process. Students who are leaving campus or are changing rooms can opt for Express Checkout or In-person Checkout. Students staying in the same room should opt for the Express Checkout. Students should not check out at the front desk.

Express Checkout: The student is fully responsible for independently verifying that they are ready to properly check out of their room. The student will complete the checkout process online at their convenience. No Student Housing staff member will be present to physically check the student’s space while the student remains in the room.

In-person Checkout: The student can complete the checkout process in-person with a Student Housing staff member. The student should go to the front desk of their assigned residence hall or apartment and request an in-person checkout. In-person checkouts will be available daily. A Student Housing staff member will be present to physically walk through the room with the students to verify potential damages and cleanliness of the student’s space.
