Summer Housing

2021 Summer Housing

Summer Housing at George Fox University

Who is eligible for summer housing?

While working to maintain required guidelines by the Governor of Oregon, we have a limited number of spots available for summer residents. Students will be communicated with about their eligibility and application acceptance as soon as possible after their application has been submitted.

Any student who is enrolled in classes for Fall semester may apply for summer housing. Housing is provided on a first come, first serve basis with a limited amount of spaces. Priority will be given to current students as well as those who are employed in an on-campus job without local housing options.

Summer housing options include double-occupancy rooms in apartments on-campus.

When is summer housing available?

Summer housing is available from May 3 to August 1, 2021.  Please read this information carefully as it contains important details.

Where are applications and when are they due?

You can apply through the "Summer Housing Application" on the Housing and Meal Plan Intent form. Applications open on around April 1, 2021 and are due on Friday, April 23, 2021 (Applications are accepted after this date, but on a case-by-case basis.)

How much does it cost?

  • $200/month for on-campus employees, research scholars, and international students (billed monthly through Student Account)
  • $400/month for all other summer students (billed monthly through Student Account)

For residents who will be on-campus for Fall 2021, there is no charge for the month of August, and students will transition to their fall housing space in early August.

Note: Summer housing is billed on the 1st of each month and is not prorated by week. There will also be a $25 fee if you apply for housing but do not show up for housing. To avoid this fee you must cancel your application by the day before your summer housing begins.

How do I pay?

Monthly housing fee will be due on the 1st of each month. Late payments will be subject to late fees and account holds. For your convenience, here are instructions for online payments.

How are students assigned to housing?

Students will be assigned to 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 summer will be available when students check in. 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 summer housing?

Students will be able to move into their summer housing during the first two weeks of May. Housing information and keys will be available for pick up at the Student Life Office during that time. Specific dates and times will be communicated via email.

Students leaving for Juniors Abroad on or before May 3 and then returning for summer employment will move in after they return from their trip.

Where will I stay until summer housing is ready?

Students are able to stay in their spring semester housing until moving to their summer space. 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 may have a different move-in timeline. Information regarding move-in will be communicated via email.
