Summer First Term 2020: Burns Hall

Summer Second Term 2020: Burns Hall, Minor Hall

August Intersession 2020: Student housing for August Intersession is available only to students who have rooms reserved on campus for 2020-21. Students will be assigned to those rooms for August Intersession if possible. Assignments in other locations will be given to students whose 2020-21 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 2020: 9:00am on April 1, 2020

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 was posted to your bursar account may affect your ability to register for Fall 2020 or result in a hold placed on your Fall 2020 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. Room change closes for the term three business days prior to move in. Room changes will next be available after move in. Contact your Community Coordinator if interested.

  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).
