Summer Housing

The Housing and Residence Life Office provides housing in Spooner Hall for students during May, June, July, and part of August. Typically students are housed between May 17 and August 7.  Housing options in Spooner Hall include furnished single rooms and furnished three-room (living area, bedroom, private bathroom) efficiency apartments.


You may live in Spooner for part or all of the summer if you are currently enrolled at least one summer course or if you are pre-enrolled for courses for the 2016 Fall Semester.

Move In/Move Out Dates

Because of the need to clean Spooner Hall after the 2016 winter semester, students who wish to live in Spooner for some or all of the summer while they take classes are not permitted to move in before Saturday, May 14, 2016.  Similarly, because of the need to prepare Spooner Hall for the 2013 fall semester, summer residents must move out prior to Sunday, August 7, 2016.
