Temporary Housing

Temporary housing is not for students signed up for summer housing. If you are signed up for summer housing and need a place to stay between May 16 and 20, please sign up for Transition housing. You will receive an email from our office about Transition Housing once you complete your summer housing application.

Temporary housing is not for seniors. Graduating seniors who want housing between May 16 and 20, please sign up for senior housing. All seniors who are on the graduation list will receive an email mid April. Please contact us with any questions.

Temporary Housing is available for students who need on-campus housing beyond the academic year closing of residential buildings on May 16, 2019. To be guaranteed Temporary Housing, your request must be made by May 1, 2019.

Temporary Housing is available from Closing Day (May 16th) through 4:00pm Monday, June 3, 2019. The cost is $25.00 per night. Temporary housing is located in Trembley Park Apartments.

Please note: If you register for temporary housing immediately following closing, you will be required to move between May 16-20. We will work with you to transition you from your current housing directly into Trembley Park sometime after closing on May 16th. The date of the transition will depend upon how many other students are requesting temp. housing in your current building. There is a cost of $25.00/night no matter where you are residing.
