University Summer Housing

The Office of Residential Life is pleased to offer summer housing to matriculating Wesleyan undergraduate students.  Students who require housing after Saturday, May 20, 2023, must submit an online Summer Housing Application.

Summer Housing begins on Saturday, May 20, 2023. Students may be required to remain in their spring assignment or relocate to a temporary assignment before transitioning to their summer residence. Students must be present to move on the designated date.

NOTE: Students living in Bennet, Clark, Hewitt and select program houses cannot stay in their unit beyond May 20, 2023.   Any students, except graduating seniors, residing in Bennet, Clark, and Hewitt who need housing after this date will be required to relocate to another residence (graduating seniors are permitted to remain in these units until Monday, May 29, 2023, with the understanding that Reunion/Commencement guests will also be occupying these buildings).  Program House residents who need to relocate will be informed the first week in May.  All moves must be completed by 3 PM on Saturday, May 20, 2023.   There will only be a limited number of temporary spaces available to students who need to relocate during transition housing.

Summer residents can learn more about meal plan options on the Wesleyan Dining webpage.

Note: At this time the application for dining is unavailable and will be added at a later date.

Important Information

  • Summer Housing is ONLY available to matriculated Wesleyan undergraduate students.  Graduating seniors are not eligible unless enrolled in University Summer Session. Graduate students interested in summer housing should contact our office at 860-685-3550, to discuss their options.
  • Fraternities and societies (Alpha Delt and/or Psi U) are not designated as University summer housing and students who decide to stay at these locations should carefully check move in and move out dates, as they will not be eligible for University transition housing at the beginning or end of the summer. Please note, that students are prohibited from living in 184 and 276 High Street, as they are not recognized as housing options during the academic year and remain off limits to students.
  • Summer Residents must stay for a minimum of four weeks after the opening of Summer Housing on May 20, 2023. Students cannot move into Summer Housing after August 1, 2023.
  • Students will be hired to serve as ResLife staff for the students living on campus this summer. It is their responsibility to help create community and maintain a safe and welcoming environment for residents. To view the Residential Life Summer Staff Application, please go to Handshake. Applications will be available starting March 20, 2023, with a priority submission date by April 3, 2023.
  • The same University policies that apply during the academic year are in effect during the summer term. Students are expected to comply with the terms of the Summer Housing Contract, the Code of Non-Academic Conduct, and all Community Standards.  A copy of the Summer Housing Contract is available for you to review.

Application Process

  • Summer Housing Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, however the priority deadline is Monday, April 24, 2023. Applications will not be accepted after Friday, July 14, 2023.
  • Students who require an accommodation should contact Accessibility Services by Friday, April 21, 2023.
  • Students will be notified of their status via email.
  • We cannot accept changes or extensions to housing contract dates after Friday, July 14, 2023.
  • Summer Housing students who break their summer housing contract at any point after the first Friday in May, and Summer Session II students who break their summer housing contract at any point after the first Friday in June, will be charged a $150 contract breakage fee.  A student can be charged the breakage fee for any breach of the contract, including moving out early or finding another place before University Housing begins. A refund (if applicable) will be prorated to the date of the return of the key and the release; no refunds, however, will be granted to students who vacate during the last two weeks of their reservation.

Housing Costs

The 2023 summer rate is $24/day. 

Students will be charged for the entire length of time they spend in on-campus housing. If you are working for a department that is subsidizing your housing, please contact them to finalize dates and costs for the summer.
