Summer Housing Process

Obtaining summer housing is a fairly simple process. Below are the steps that students, faculty, and staff must take in order for students to receive summer housing.

Step 1: Apply

Complete the JBS Summer Housing Application.  Forms must be submitted by April 25 for priority consideration.  Applications received after April 25 will be housed in the order they are received.

Step 2: Transitional Housing, Part I

If you wish to live on-campus between the end of final exams and the beginning of the summer, you must complete the Transitional Housing Request form. Transitional Housing costs a flat rate of $500. Your student account will be billed directly for transitional housing. See the Transitional Housing section of the website more information.

Step 3: Move-In

Students will be notified of their summer residence by May 2. Keys for summer housing will be available for pick up on June 1 from the Department of Community Living in Usdan.  Students who are residing on campus for Transitional Housing (part I) may be expected to move into their summer housing early.

Step 4: Transitional Housing, Part II

Students who wish to stay on-campus for the period between the end of summer school and beginning of the fall semester may request summer to fall transitional housing. Summer to fall transitional housing is only available for students enrolled in 10 week programs. If you did not request summer to fall transitional housing originally, a new Transitional Housing Request must be completed. The cost of transitional housing for this period is $300. See the Transitional Housing section of the website for more information.
