Eligibility & Assignments
Priority is given to students who are living on campus for the two terms that bracket the interim period. Late departure and early arrival requests will be considered, although depending on room availability and your documentation, we may not be able to approve all the dates you request.
In addition to living on campus for at least one of the two terms, you must meet one or more of the following criteria:
- Involvement in a college-related activity (academic research, athletic team or college employment). Documentation from your professor/employer/coach is required.
- Travel constraints. In order to be approved for interim housing based on travel constraints, you must provide a copy of your airline, train or bus ticket. Typically this is only granted for students who live 500 miles or more from Dartmouth.
- International student. When completing your application, please fully document the dates you need housing and the reasons why you must be on campus.
Students are notified of their status via email beginning two weeks after the deadline. Students are generally housed in their regularly assigned room for the approved interim period. This is not possible during the spring/summer interim when the majority of interim residents are relocated to a designated cluster for the days they are approved in order to accommodate Commencement and Reunion guests.
Students approved for interim housing will have ID access to the residence hall where they are assigned. Universal access begins when the residence halls open for the academic term.
