Summer Housing Agreement

In order to be eligible for a summer on-campus assignment through the Office of Housing Services, individuals must be a current academic year Catholic University student, a 2021 Catholic University graduate, or a visiting college student enrolled in summer courses at Catholic University. For the time period from May 16 through August 8, current Catholic University students do not need to be enrolled in summer classes in order to be eligible for summer housing. This is a great opportunity for Catholic University students to pursue internships and other career opportunities in the D.C. metro area during the summer months.

Application Process

The Summer Housing Application is available in MyHousing.  Housing Services will begin announcing room assignments on April 30.  Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis throughout the summer months until July 23. All applications should be received at least 7 days days before the requested arrival date.  Once an assignment is made students may utilize MyHousing to see their room assignment, select/view their dining plan, roommates, Campus PO Box, and current housing-related billing charge.

Summer Housing Dates

The Summer term begins on Sunday, May 16, 2021, at 5:00 PM EST, and the summer term ends on Sunday, August 8, 2021, at 12:00 PM EST.  On-campus housing is available during the Spring-to-Summer transition period from May 9 through May 16 for Catholic University students who have a Spring 2021 assignment and a summer assignment beginning on May 16. Current residential students who wish to request Summer transition housing may do so by completing the online request form.

On-campus housing is not generally available between August 8 through August 28. Students will be expected to vacate their summer assignment by 12:00 PM EST on August 8. However, students who have a summer assignment ending on August 8 and have a confirmed Fall 2021 assignment are eligible for Summer-to-Fall transition housing from August 8 through August 28 by completing the online request form for Summer-to-Fall Transition Housing.  

Check-in information will be sent via University email to each student who receives a summer assignment. Summer housing will begin on Sunday, May 16 at 5:00 PM EST; which is the earliest available check-in date and time. Summer housing will end on August 8 at 12:00 p.m. EST; which is the latest any student can remain in their summer assignment unless approval is granted by Housing Services. Students looking to request Summer-to-Fall Transition Housing or Extended Stay should submit the online request form only if they also have a Fall 2021 room assignment.
