Summer Housing 2016


A limited number of student rooms are available for rent during the Summer of 2016. Members of the Class of 2016 are not eligible for summer housing, nor are members of the Class of 2020.  While we anticipate having a sufficient number of rooms available for all students who request, priority will be given to students who are a) international students and/or students with extenuating circumstances related to home or travel b) students participating in sponsored summer research and c) students working for an administrative department.  If additional rooms are available, they will be offered to students on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you are working for the Admissions Department or are a Lang Center Fellow, you housing will be assigned through your office sponsor.

Room Types

All Summer residents will be assigned to a double room; individuals can request to select a roommate if they would not like to be matched with one. If a student does not have a roommate in mind, OSE will help individual students find matches.
