Students who apply for summer term housing are accommodated in a manner similar to those who apply for winter or spring term. The major difference is that although the College uses fewer buildings to house students during this term, the majority of the rooms are vacant, so we are better able to accommodate room type preferences and roommate requests.
Students are eligible to apply for summer term housing at least two terms in advance. The room draw process is not used for summer term.
The Undergraduate Housing Office determines which buildings will be open for the summer term during the preceding fall term.
Only a small number of residence halls are used to house students enrolled for summer term classes. Some, but not all Living Learning Communities are open and all coed, fraternity, sorority and undergraduate society houses are used for summer term housing unless otherwise noted.
Students are encouraged to apply early if they plan to be on a leave or off-campus term. The application is available on DartHub, Housing StarPortal and must be filed by the application deadline, which is in the spring term.
Students are assigned to a room based on their priority number and the information provided on the housing application. On-time applicants are assigned first, followed by on-time leave term applicants, and if space is available, late applicants. Assignments are made, as in other terms, to Living Learning Communities, coed, fraternity, sorority, and society houses first, then to rooms in the designated halls. Students should consider these assignment procedures when making housing assignment choices.
Students who cancel a summer term housing assignment before the residence halls open are charged a $500 contract cancellation fee, so only those students who are serious about residing on-campus during the summer should apply. Assignments cannot be cancelled after the summer term residence halls open.
