Live and Learn on Campus!

Living on campus during the summer provides students convenient access to academic support services, summer classes and Student Health Services. Students also have the opportunity to meet new people and experience a vibrant, diverse living community. During the summer months, the College hosts many in its residence halls. These guests range from long-term senior citizen renters, alumni, sports teams, educational conference attendees, seminarians, high-school students, and Grandma's Marathon runners. 

This web site provides students information regarding the College's summer lease options.  The summer rental program for students begins June 1 - July 31, 2014.  Please be sure to review the Summer Housing Timeline for information regarding transitional housing (for current residents) for the end of May and early August.

Priority placement for Summer Housing is April 4. During the summer, CSS Students will be placed in Birch, Pine, Maple and Willow Apartments. The lease term for summer housing is June - July 31 with a one time charge of $850 (this includes a Student Health Fee). Summer Housing Contracts are available via your OneStop Page in Cor by the first week in March.
