Summer Housing

Fact Sheet

During each summer, the University of Rochester welcomes students to live in our residence halls if they are taking classes, working on campus, or participating in a Sponsored Program. Please click the various links to learn more about summer housing and to get the application. Information regarding summer housing is updated after spring break. Applicants for Sponsored Programs have a separate housing application, be sure to use the right one.

Living in UR’s residence halls provides a safe, comfortable, and convenient place while you are attending classes, completing internships, and or working for the College.

Please read all of the following information thoroughly. Once signed, your housing contract is binding. *We will begin accepting Summer Housing contracts Monday, April 4, 2016.
