How are students assigned to housing?

Students will be assigned to May Term/summer housing on a space available basis. Unfortunately, we are limited in our ability to consider living area preferences during this time. Assignments are based primarily on our need to facilitate summer checkouts and fall arrivals in early August.

Housing assignments for May Term and summer will be available when students check in on Monday, May 1. Because of the short turnaround time between spring semester and summer we are not able to provide this information until this time.

When will I be able to move into my May/summer housing?

Student will be able to move into their May/summer housing on Monday, May 1, starting around 4 p.m. Housing information and keys will be available for pick up at the Student Life Office from 4 to 7 p.m. that evening.

Students leaving for Juniors Abroad on or before May 1 and then returning for summer employment will move in after they return from their trip.

May Term students who will be working through the remainder of the summer will have one housing assignment for the duration.

Where will I stay until summer housing is ready?

Students are able to stay in their spring semester housing through the afternoon of Monday, May 1. These students will still need to check out with their RA at the appropriate time, but will be able to stay in campus housing until summer housing is ready. Please consult with your RA/AC regarding details.

Student living off-campus for spring semester and then moving into campus housing will not be able to move in until Monday evening, May 1
