Summer Housing

Summer housing is a convenient, affordable option for students taking classes or
working on campus. Students who are enrolled in summer courses, involved in fulltime
research on campus; completing an internship or employed as a summer
student worker may request to stay on campus for the summer. Summer residents
will be housed in Butz Hall. RAs will be available on the floor to answer questions and
provide support.

How do I request summer housing?

If you plan to live on campus this summer, please complete the Summer Housing
Request form, available on the Student Affairs tab in the Residence Life folder on
MyCedarCrest. Students will be placed in summer housing on a first come, first
served basis.

When is the selection for summer housing?

Summer housing selection will take place at the end of March, usually over the lunch hour. If you cannot attend, you may pick up a Proxy Form from the assistant at the Allen House and have someone attend selection in your place.

How much does housing cost?

The weekly housing rates are as follows:
Double*: $95
Medical Single: $95
Single: $105
Suite Double with Full Bath: $125
Deluxe Single: $135

*Traditional students who are conducting research approved by an academic
department; completing a minimum 120 hour summer internship; or taking six or more
credits per summer session qualify for a free double room.

Will I have to share a room?

This will depend on the number of students planning to live on campus over the summer. The majority of summer students will most likely have to share a room.

Can I stay in my room between summer sessions?

Yes, you can stay in your summer room between Summer Session I & II if you are in housing for both sessions

Is there housing during May Term?

Yes.  Regular summer housing costs apply as listed above.

Can I leave my belongings in my current room until Summer Session I begins?

Yes. You may remain in your current Spring semester room until the Summer Session I move-over date.

Can I have an air-conditioner in my room over the summer?

Air conditioners are allowed. If you wish to use an air conditioner, you must supply the unit. Air conditioners must be installed and/or inspected after installation by a member of the Facilities staff. After you have moved into your summer room, you may submit a work order for assistance with your air conditioner.

Will the dining hall be open over the summer?

No. The meal plan you currently have will end in May. During the summer, the Falcon’s Nest will be open from 8:15 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. No summer meal plan is available. However, you can deposit money on your card (called voluntary flex) and use it like a debit card in the Falcon’s Nest so that you don’t have to carry around cash. Food Services staff can answer any further questions.

Will I be able to have visitors during the summer?

Yes. All regular visitation rules apply. Student may have overnight guests Monday through Sunday. Please note that overnight hours are considered anytime between 12:00 midnight and 8:00 a.m. If you have questions about the visitation policy, please contact your RA or building supervisor.
