2022 Summer Housing

Summer Housing is offered from May 20, 2022 - July 30, 2022. Students who have received a summer opportunity from the College receive priority status for summer housing reservations so long as all steps in the process are completed in a timely fashion. Failure to complete the form by the date listed above may result in lack of summer housing availability or may result in you being placed on a housing waitlist. 

Summer Housing is available to students who are members of the Class of ‘23, ‘24 and ‘25.   Members of the Class of 2022 and students who are not currently enrolled at the College are not eligible for summer housing.

The default summer housing term is 10 weeks. Students may select a shorter summer term of 8 or 9 weeks, and are eligible for a prorated rent. There is no additional pro-ration for terms shorter than 8 weeks during the summer. Students who accept a summer opportunity are not required to live in summer housing. 

For summer 2022, the 10-week window for housing is: Fri, May 20 - Sat, July 30, 2022 

Students who choose a reduced stay of 8 or 9 weeks between the established housing dates will be prorated accordingly. When reserving summer housing, please select one of the options below: 

  • 10 weeks - $1,320
    • Option A: May, 20, 2022 - July 30, 2022 
  • 9 weeks - $1,220 
    • Option B: May, 20, 2022 - July 23, 2022

    • Option D: May 20, 2022 - July 16, 2022


  • Option E: May 27, 2022 - July 23, 2022

Residence halls close on Friday, May 13th to all non-graduating students.  The Summer term residence halls open on Friday, May 20th (Options A, B, and D) or Friday, May 27 (sections C and E).  If you are currently living in College-owned housing and you select options A, B or D, you will receive interim housing in between May 13th and May 20th (location TBD).  If you are not currently living in College-owned housing you will not be able to access your housing assignment earlier than May 20, 2022.   If you are currently living in College-owned housing and selection options C or E, you MUST completely vacate your residence hall room no later than Friday, May 13th.  Interim housing is not available in between spring and summer for students unless they select A, B or D.

  • Spring 2022 residential students who select options A, B, or D: 
    • Will receive interim housing from May 13th - May 20th  
      • Locations (TBD) 
  • Spring 2022 residential students who select options C or E: 
    • Must completely vacate residence hall rooms no later than May 13th 
      • Interim housing is not available from May 13th - May 27th 

Summer housing will not be prorated for students who need housing for less than 8 weeks. Summer housing ends for all students on July 30, 2022. Late move-outs are not possible and all students are expected to depart campus by July 30, 2022. Students who need housing outside the dates listed above should consider off campus housing options. 

The summer housing rent includes a small meal plan to help subsidize your meal costs during the summer term.  Specific hours of operation and total number of meals available will be shared closer to the beginning of the summer term. The meals provided are not meant to be a full meal plan and students should budget separately for meal costs during the summer term. 

Please note: summer housing is prioritized for students who have received Swarthmore College sponsored summer opportunities. Depending on the number of students (with summer opportunities) who accept summer housing, space may be available for students who have not accepted College sponsored opportunities. Summer opportunities will be verified with respective offices/departments listed on the summer housing reservation form that students received via email. 

Students who choose to live in summer housing may be required to move multiple times throughout the dates listed above. Students must also be available during the following dates to complete moves: 

  • May 27 - May 29 
  • July 29 - July 30 

Payments for summer housing will be made through the Housing Portal and final rent payments must be submitted no later than 8:00am on July 1, 2022. 

We hope to finalize Summer Housing assignments by mid-April. Students living in summer housing may be assigned to double or larger occupancy rooms. Students may be housed in single and double occupancy rooms in a variety of residence halls, including PPR apartments, Palmer, Parrish, Pittenger and similar locations. Summer residence hall assignments are based on the total number of summer housing applications received. 

Meal Plan

All residence hall summer housing students will have a meal plan provided as part of their summer rent. Additional information about dates and locations will be shared by Dining Services in the future.
