On-Campus Housing

Registration for on-campus housing will open in early April. For alumni interested in staying on campus, please understand that Swarthmore is committed to providing summer housing to students pursuing on-campus or local summer opportunities — or who simply have nowhere else to go. With this in mind, on-campus housing is limited and assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. We encourage you to explore off-campus options, including local hotels, inns, and short-term rentals. If you're interested in staying on campus during Alumni Weekend, please plan to register early. Registration will open in early April. 

As a reminder, on-campus housing is limited to basic dorm rooms, which have only the bare essentials: two sheets, one pillow and pillowcase, one blanket, two towels, and soap. Bathrooms are communal and rooms with private baths are not avail­able. Most residence halls do not have air conditioning.
