Summer School & Intern Housing

Students attending summer school are housed in Ponder Hall in single rooms. In the event we run out of space in single rooms, students will be assigned to a double room as a single occupant. To access the summer school housing application, please log into the Housing portal and select the Forms and Agreement section. The application will be available on March 30th.

Summer housing assignments will be made beginning in mid-May. You will receive an email with assignment confirmation and check-in/out instructions at that time.
