Summer Session Students

Summer Session students are eligible to live in the following locations:

  • Residence Halls (Note: there is no age limit for summer session students)

Students enrolled in summer quarter classes may apply to live in the residence halls for the duration of the quarter(s) in which they are enrolled. Because summer quarter is not part of the regular academic year – and residence hall contracts do not include summer quarter – residence hall contracts are available to all summer quarter students who meet all requirements and deadlines regardless of student classification. During the summer, the Conference Housing department manages the residence halls; for more information and to apply for housing for summer quarter, visit the Conference Housing website.

  • Residence halls (students must be under 24 years old; space is subject to availability after all incoming freshmen have received an offer for space)

International students should contact Student Housing to learn how to apply for housing space and, if applicable, to request to be placed on a wait list.
