General Summer Housing Information

Spring to Summer Residents

Residents who stay on campus from spring into summer will reside in their spring assignment for approximately one week after the residence halls close before moving into their summer assignment. This allows time for spring apartment occupants to move out and for the apartments to be cleaned for new residents. Summer housing charges begin the first day after the official residence hall closing date for spring semester.

New Summer Residents

Summer housing applicants who do not live on campus during the spring semester (new residents), move in on May 24, 2024. Summer housing charges will be prorated from the day the new resident moves onto campus, through the final day of checkout. 

Transitions between Summer Sessions

If you are residing on campus for different sessions, (i.e. you are here for one week in June then leave and return for another week in July), you MUST check in and check out, even if you are assigned to the same room for both sessions. Each time you leave you must take your belongings with you, as we may need to use the room while you are gone.

Summer to Fall Residents

Summer housing residents residing on campus for the fall semester move to their fall assignments the last week of July. Residence Life will contact students via CMU email regarding specific move dates. Summer housing charges still apply up until the official opening of the residence halls for the fall semester.

Summer Residents Not On Campus for Fall

Summer residents who are not living on campus for the fall semester cannot reserve summer housing past August 2nd, 2024. Summer residents who are not registered for fall must move out of their space the day after the completion of their summer class session. Final arrangements must be made to move off campus by August 2nd, 2024 for students in the final summer session.
