Summer Housing

Housing is not required, but a limited number of spaces are available for interested students who have either a spring 2018 or a fall 2018 housing contract.

Transition housing follows the end of the spring term and the beginning of summer I, as well as, the end of summer II and the start of the fall term. Students who utilize transition housing, but cancel their summer contract, will be charged a housing fee of $468 (the daily cost of housing, which includes a $100 late move-out charge).


The Department of Housing and Residential Life does not provide
temporary housing for students in off-campus apartments.
