Break Housing

Summer Housing

Any student who is enrolled in classes for fall semester may apply for summer housing. Housing is provided on a first-come, first-served 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.

2024 Summer Housing FAQ

Summer housing is available from April 29 to Aug. 1, 2024.

You can apply through the "Summer Housing Application" on the Housing & Community Life Portal. Applications open on or around April 1, and are due on Friday, April 19, 2024 (applications are accepted after this date, but on a case-by-case basis.)

  • $250/month for on-campus employees and research scholars (billed monthly through student account)
  • $500/month for all other summer students (billed monthly through student account)

For residents who will be on campus for fall 2024, 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 first of each month and is not prorated by week. There will also be a $25 fee if you apply for summer housing but do not check-in. To avoid this fee you must cancel your application by the day before your summer housing begins.

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

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 prior to this date.

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 1 and then returning for summer employment will move in after they return from their trip.

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.

Students 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. 

Winter/Spring Break Housing

All living areas are closed over winter and spring break. However, we recognize some students need housing accommodations during break closures. To meet this need, we offer break housing to students in these situations:

  • Required sports programs
  • Home address is 200-plus miles away
  • On- or off-campus jobs requiring students to stay in town
  • Extenuating circumstances or illness
Note: University housing does not close for Thanksgiving Break or Mid-Semester Holiday. Students are able to remain in housing during these breaks. (Food service hours may be affected. Check with Bon Appetit for more information.)

Winter/Spring Break Housing FAQ

You can fill out the "Break Housing Application" on the Housing & Community Life Portal for both winter and spring breaks. 

Winter break: Housing starts the Saturday after fall semester finals week and ends the Friday before spring semester begins.

Spring break: Housing starts the first Saturday of spring break and ends the second Sunday of spring break.

Winter break:

  • $100/week (note that break housing cannot be prorated and is charged on a weekly basis).
  • Students staying less than a 24-hour period during break housing will have a $25 application processing fee and will not pay the standard rental fee.
  • There is no charge for students required on campus for athletic or academic programs (this does not include work-study positions).

Spring break:

  • $25 application processing fee (note that this amount is charged for all Spring Break applications, and there is no longer a weekly rental charge for Spring Break housing).
  • There is no charge for students required on campus for athletic or academic programs (this does not include work-study positions).

Housing fees are typically due on the first of each month. Late payments will be subject to late fees and account holds. Please connect with Student Accounts about billing details.

Winter break: Students will be assigned to their fall housing location in most instances. Unfortunately, some housing locations will be unavailable due to maintenance updates. Students applying for break housing in these locations will be placed elsewhere, and will be notified ahead of time.

Spring break: Students will be assigned to their spring housing location.
