Summer School Housing

The Office of Residence Life provides summer school housing for students who need to remain in the residence halls. Because of the limited demand for summer housing and the high demand for space for summer camps and conferences, we limit all summer school housing to just one residence hall. Students electing to live on campus during the summer of 2019 will live in Towers East. All summer rooms will be considered private rooms (1 student per room) at no additonal charge!

Apply for Summer School Housing

Students wishing to live on campus during the summer should complete the Summer Contract for University Housing on the Residence Life Housing Portal on your "MySoutheast" page. Please note the session(s) you will need housing and what meal plan you would like to choose. Every effort will be made to honor your roommate preferences as we make summer housing assignments. Summer housing assignments are typically made after spring break and on a rolling process thereafter.


Costs are different for each term. You can see the cost for each term by opening the summer room rate sheet.
