On-campus housing is available for students as space permits. Students must be registered in a credit-bearing academic course while residing in summer housing. Uptown East Apartments will be used for Summer Housing.
Apartment amenities include air-conditioning, internet, cable, furnished living room with television, kitchen with all major appliances, washer/dryer unit and private bedroom with full-sized bed and private bathroom. Apartments are provided with the necessary furniture, but students must supply their own bedding, pillows, towels, kitchen utensils, pots, pans, lamps etc.
While summer housing is optional, once the student signs the summer housing agreement it is a binding contract for the specified summer session(s) noted on the agreement that obligates the student to live in University-operated residence halls for that full summer session(s). Students who are starting classes on other dates must check with the Office of Residential Life when submitting applications.
Summer Housing Dates:
- Session I: Monday, May 21-Saturday, June 30
- Session II: Sunday, July 1-Saturday, August 11
Summer Housing Applications are available online through DataVU. Students then access their Housing Self-Service and complete the “Summer 1 and-or Summer 2 On-Campus Housing Application”. Applications are due by Monday, April 30, 2018.
