Transition Housing

Reunion & Commencement and Summer Housing Transition
The period of time between May 17, 2014 and May 27, 2014 is considered a transition period to allow maintenance work to be done on the buildings being used for Summer Housing and Reunion and Commencement. We are able to offer limited housing during this transition period and only to University summer housing and Summer Session residents requiring it, as well as for students who are working for University Relations, Bon Appetit or another University office with Reunion and Commencement responsibilities. Students completing papers, projects, finals, working on research, studied abroad for the spring semester or living off-campus for the summer are not eligible for transition housing (fraternity and society houses are considered off-campus summer housing). The only building open for University summer housing is Bennet Hall.  

Students who are staying for transition housing will be charged a daily rate of $24.00 unless their department is paying for their housing.  You may want to check with your employer to see if this is an option.

The Transition Housing Application is closed. If you need transition housing and meet the criteria, please contact Stacey Phelps at

Transition Assignments
Students whose spring 2014 housing assignment is in Clark Hall, Bennet Hall, and Hewitt who are approved for Summer Housing or Reunion and Commencement employment will need to relocate to an assigned transition room elsewhere on campus during this time as the above mentioned buildings will be immediately used by University Relations and Summer Programs.  Students in all other residences, who have been approved to remain on campus, are permitted to remain in their spring 2014 housing assignment during this transition period.  Students needing to relocate will move to a transition room by 1 p.m. on May 17, 2014

If you are approved to stay, need a transition assignment and know a student who is approved to stay for Reunion and Commencement or is participating in University summer housing or Summer Session in an approved building, you can request to live with that student.  Please email the Office of Residential Life by May 12, 2014 at noon with who you would like to room.

Students who are only assisting with Reunion and Commencement will have to move out of their transition assignment by Monday, May 26, 2014 by 4:30 p.m.  University summer housing and Summer Session students will move to their new assignments when the building is ready for summer occupancy on Tuesday, May 27, 2014 after 4 p.m. 

Fall Transition
Students who will be living on campus in the fall, and are remaining in University summer housing until University Housing opens on Saturday, August 30, 2014, will be transitioned into their fall assignment on Friday, August 15, 2014.  Please make the necessary arrangements so that you are available to move on that date. Students who will not be living on campus in the fall will not be allowed to stay in their Summer Housing Assignment past August 15, 2014

The only students who are eligible for early arrival status are those who are living on campus for the summer, students working for a University office to prepare the University for opening, or approved fall athletes.
