Sign up for the Summer Semester

Sign up for the full Summer semester! Students who sign-up with on-campus housing can move in any time after April 8th at no additional cost. Visit the housing website for application information. Note: all applications require a $100 prepayment for that semester.

  • 4 person quad apartment | $2287 housing + $60 residential fee + $200 telecom = $2547 per semester
  • 6 person quad double occupancy room | $1333 housing + $60 residential fee + $200 telecom = $1593 per semester 
  • 6 person quad single occupancy room | $1830 housing + $60 residential fee + $200 telecom = $2090 per semester

View the Housing Guide for International Students (PDF).

30-Day Commitment 

Opt for a 30-day guest housing stay in one of the on-campus housings. Arrive any time in April, the arrival date starts the 30-day clock. Typically, guest housing residents are required to pay a $250 deposit, this requirement will be waived. Residents pay a flat rate of $675 rent, due before arrival. The online application will be available starting April 1.

Application Information

Option to stay for the semester, after a 30-day initial commitment.

If a temporary resident decides they want to stay beyond their 30-day guest housing commitment, then they'd submit a standard housing application and would then be billed the pro-rated remainder of the semester through their WINGS account. This amount will vary depending on the arrival date; essentially, residents would be billed the daily rate for the days in April or May that they arrived prior to the semester officially starting. Note: this option may require the resident to move into a different apartment if not all roommates elect to stay.

For a list of some off-campus housing options see below:
