Summer Housing for UC Students

Students seeking to live in University Housing during the Summer 2023 term must be enrolled for the Spring 23, Summer 23, or Fall 23 semester.

Summer term housing is available May 7 - August 5 at 12:00 p.m. (noon).

Your success is our success. The university's position is that the support system provided by living in university housing enhances the academic efforts and social adjustment of new students-and provides important benefits to all returning students as well.

Summer semester application is still open.

Semester Transition

New Residents

New residents may begin move in on May 7 or after.

Additional information will be sent via email, and posted to this section of the web page.

Transitioning Residents Procedure

  • Starting April 29 at 9 a.m., you may pick up keys to your summer assignment from the service center of your summer assignment. After picking up your keys, you will gain access to the building. 
  • A limited number of rooms may be ready for move-in before this date. If this is the case for your room, you will receive separate communication to let you know.
  • Within 48 hours of picking up your key, you must be completely moved out of your spring assignment and into your summer assignment. 
  • After removing all personal items from your summer assignment, proceed to the front desk to check-out and return your academic year assignment keys. 
  • Students must complete all steps by Friday, May 5 at 12:00 p.m. (noon). 
  • If you have questions regarding move-out procedures, please contact your RA or the service center of your 2022-23 academic year assigned room.

Students Staying in the Same Room

If you are assigned to the same room for the summer as you were for the 2022-23 academic year, you must stop by the front desk of your hall to get checked-in for the fall semester. This ensures your card access for the summer. Summer access will be granted only once you have checked in.

Why Students Choose to Live in Summer Housing

  • You increase your odds for academic achievement. Studies have shown that students residing on campus do better academically and are more likely to graduate. Living in a residence hall makes it easier for you to access the library and to connect with study groups. No travel to and from an off-campus residence means you will be less likely to miss classes and you will have more time for study.
  • Meals are nutritious, convenient, and easy. The dining centers and retail food locations on campus provide a variety of healthy foods. Meal plan participation saves you the time of grocery shopping, cooking, and washing dishes.
  • Work and fun are easier. If you plan to work part-time, living in a residence hall makes scheduling time for a campus job easier.

FAQ for Summer Housing Application

There is no fee to apply for summer semester housing. 

Students enrolled at the university the spring 23 or fall 23 semesters are eligible to receive a special summer rate according to their tuition guarantee cohort. 

Students that are only enrolled for the summer semester will be charged the semester rate for the session, also based on their tuition guarantee cohort. 

Students staying in summer housing will primarily be assigned to the University Park Apts and Morgens Hall communities.

While there may some availability for students to stay in their current spring 23 room assignment, retention is not guaranteed. Most students staying in university housing in the spring or fall semesters will relocate for summer.

University housing is also unable to guarantee student assignment to any particular room type for the summer.  


Students have all the same meal plan options during the summer as available during the academic year. 

During the summer semester, On the Green and CenterCourt dining centers will be operating and ready for you to visit.
