Summer Housing 2024

The Office of Residential Education & Housing acknowledges that students at Union College may have circumstances that create a need or desire to stay on campus over the summer break. Although Summer Housing is limited, our office works to provide Housing for those who may need to stay. Students living in Summer Housing will be expected to follow the policies and procedures established by Union College and the Office of Residential Education & Housing, which will be included in the agreement as part of the application process.

Applications and Cost

The application for Summer Housing will open on April 29th, 2024. Applications are due by May 10th, 2024. Students must apply within this window to be considered for Summer Housing. Any student interested in staying on campus over the break is welcome to apply, but approval is not guaranteed, as space is limited.

Only specific buildings will be used for Summer Housing. These buildings are:

  • Messa House
  • Wold House
  • Green House
  • Sorum House
  • Garnet Commons

Students will be able to indicate their preferred placement on their application; however, students are not guaranteed to be placed in their top choice and could be placed in any available space depending on need.

Students who are utilizing Summer Housing will be charged per week for the duration of their stay. Students staying in a double room will pay $92 a week, and students staying in a single room will pay $125 a week. Students who opt to stay in a double room will be able to preference their roommate during the application process. Our office is not able to bill partial weeks, and all students will be billed for an entire week of stay, even if moving out in the middle of billed weeks. A week of summer housing is defined as a Friday to a Friday, starting on Friday, June 21st, 2024.

Move-In & Move-Out Dates

Students who have been approved to live on campus during the summer break will be expected to adhere to certain set dates for their move-in and move-out processes. These dates will be slightly different depending on whether the student is coming from an on-campus assignment in the Spring term or not and whether the student is transitioning into an on-campus assignment for the Fall term. These dates are non-negotiable, and all students in Summer Housing must agree to them to be approved for summer housing.

A summer housing "week" starts and ends on Fridays. Students who are not staying on campus for the entire summer will be required to move-in and move-out on the Friday that starts and ends their billing week. The first week of summer housing bill cycle will begin on Friday, June 21st, 2024.

Summer Housing Criteria & Policies

To be eligible for Summer Housing, interested students must be actively involved on campus for the duration of the break. To be considered actively involved, students must be one or more of the following:

  • Actively enrolled in at least one summer class
  • Working at an on-campus job
  • Engaged in research through the College
  • Enrolled in a local (located within 30 miles of campus) internship affiliated with their degree of studies

Proof of campus involvement, such as confirmation of the class, job, or internship, must be provided along with the application for Summer Housing. Additionally, students must be actively enrolled at Union College in the Spring of 2024, and must be enrolled for either Summer or Fall 2024 to be eligible to apply for Summer Housing.

Students who are not otherwise eligible for Summer Housing may be considered eligible if there are extreme extenuating circumstances that create a need to be on campus over summer break. These students will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
