Summer Stayover Frequently Asked Questions

PLANNING ON LIVING ON CAMPUS THIS SUMMER?
Did you renew your housing for the coming year?

If you answered “Yes” to the above then read on – Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about the Summer Stayover Program

 

  • HOW DO I KNOW IF I AM A SUMMER STAYOVER OR A SUMMER SCHOOL STUDENT?

    If you were a resident during the 2019-2020 Academic Year and have Renewed your housing to live on campus for the coming academic year, YOU ARE ELIGIBLE TO BE A SUMMER STAYOVER RESIDENT.

    Your account will be billed each month for the entire summer and you will be paying “rent” at the first of each month. You are NOT required to attend summer classes to participate in the stayover program, though you are welcome to do so if you wish. (Summer School residents will only live on campus for a set time-period during the summer and be billed ONLY for that time period. Summer school residents are REQUIRED to attend classes to live on campus, and are NOT required to renew their academic year housing for the coming year).

     

  • WHERE WILL I LIVE?

    You will be living in Arbor Park.

     

  • WHEN CAN I MOVE INTO MY SUMMER APARTMENT?

    Tentative plans are for  you to move to your Summer Stayover housing on Tuesday, June 16. Please go to the RSC between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. to get your summer room keys and receive moving instructions. Note:  You must have all of your items moved out of your old (academic year) space and have your move completed by 5:00 pm, June 16th.

  • WHERE DO I LIVE BETWEEN JUNE 13th AND JUNE 16th

    You will stay in your current room. You will checkout ONLY ON PAPER (see bullet below) by 5:00 p.m. on the 13th, but will stay in your current room until June 16th.      NOTE: You should keep your belongings somewhat packed up and ready to move during this time period as you WILL be moving into your summer apartment in just a few days. REMEMBER YOU ARE STILL RESPONSIBLE FOR LEAVING YOUR CURRENT ROOM CLEAN AND READY FOR NEW OCCUPANTS!

     

  • WHAT ABOUT CHECKING-OUT OF MY CURRENT ROOM?

    At the end of Spring Term, pack your things and work with your roommate to clean your apartment as if you were actually leaving the residence halls – but you won’t ACTUALLY MOVE until June 16th. YOU NEED TO GO THROUGH THE PROCESS AS IF YOU WERE CHECKING-OUT FOR THE SUMMER. Talk with an RA or your AD and let them know that you are a Summer Stayover.
    Get READY to leave, but you will not leave your room at this time. You will keep your key and remain in your room until June 16th. You can pick up your keys to your summer space at the RSC between 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. on June 16th.  They will give you further instructions on completing your move. You must have all of your items moved out of your old (academic year) space and have your move completed by 5:00 pm, June 16th. 

    IMPORTANT: You must still go through the checkout and check-in processes on paper –  even if your new (2020-2021 academic year) room is the same as your summer room!

  • WHAT ABOUT CHECKING-OUT OF MY SUMMER ROOM AT THE END OF THE SUMMER?

    You will check into your Fall space in late August. Exact date and time TBD.
    You will move your stuff into your new room and then go back to the RSC to checkout of your summer room.
