Summer Residence

Summer residence is available from May to August. Stay for the full session or for a shorter-term of at least 4 weeks. There is no minimum academic course load to stay in summer residence. 

Summer residents enjoy the convenience of living a short walk from classes and other amenities during the beautiful summer months on campus. Residence life activities provide opportunities for residents to engage with their peers and help them feel at home in a safe, fun, and inclusive community.
