Based on the Chancellor’s recent announcement that Summer Term instruction will be shifting to online-only offerings, we are no longer able to offer Summer Housing Boost for summer 2020.
Please know that while in-person instruction for summer 2020 will not be moving forward there are more than 300 online courses planned for this summer so you can continue to make progress on your degree. You can browse the course offerings for summer here. Please note, the schedule of courses is still being updated (e.g., some courses still say in-person, some have yet to be added) so check back frequently.
Additionally, the deadline for the Undergraduate Scholarship for Summer Study has been extended to May 1st. If you have not already done so, I would encourage you to apply to this scholarship to help support your online courses for this summer!

I'm living in a university residence hall during the spring semester and want to take a course during the summer session that begins May 18. Will the program cover my housing for the week between the two?
If you’re selected for Summer Housing Boost for the session that starts May 18, you’ll receive housing for the week in question.
I'm an international student. Am I eligible for this program?

What type of room will program participants live in?
Summer Housing Boost recipients will live in double rooms in Kronshage Residence Hall. You can learn more about the rooms on University Housing’s Kronshage Hall page.
If you require an alternate room type to accommodate a disability, please contact the McBurney Disability Resource Center. The Summer Housing Boost program will work to provide alternative room options for students who submit a request through the McBurney Center.
I want to live in University Housing beyond the dates where I will be taking summer courses. Will the Summer Housing Boost cover my costs?
The Summer Housing Boost will only cover your housing costs while you are enrolled at least half-time in summer courses. You can work with University Housing to extend your summer contract and live in the residence halls for an additional period, but you will be responsible for the costs associated with that additional time.
Can I request a specific summer roommate if I receive the Summer Housing Boost?
If you are accepted into the program, there is an option to submit a request for a specific roommate. We cannot guarantee that such requests will be granted, but we will seek to accommodate them where possible.
