Summer Housing Information

Summer housing will be available this summer at the student apartments in Apartment 661. Priority for summer housing will be given to CMC students. Summer housing is available to students who will be working on campus, conducting research, working in the area, or simply wishing to live on campus.

Because summer housing is limited, it will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. To apply, fill out this Summer Housing Application. The application is due on Monday, May 5. All summer housing will be in Apartment 661 and you can request up to three apartment-mates. We encourage you to coordinate and communicate your apartment-mate requests with all students involved. We will communicate your summer housing assignment – including the specific apartment and your apartment-mates – the week of May 12.

Dates & Apartment Information
Summer housing begins on Friday, May 23, at 1:00pm. For students currently living in Benson, Marks, Green, or the Apartments, transition housing between Sunday, May 18 – Friday, May 23 will be available in Stark Hall for CMC students only. More information about transition housing is below.

Summer housing ends on Friday, August 8, at 12:00pm. If you need to stay on campus beyond August 8, please indicate so on the application. In most cases, transition housing to your fall housing assignment will be provided. Some residence halls will not be habitable by August 8, so you will be housed elsewhere temporarily.

Each apartment comes with four single rooms, two private bathrooms, a living room, and a kitchen. The appliances provided include a refrigerator, a stove, an oven, and a dishwasher. There is no summer meal plan. There are no custodial services provided in the summer. Laundry is available with Claremont Cash. Parking at the student apartments is available for summer housing residents only. The studio apartments are not available for summer housing.

Costs, Billing, and Changes/Cancellations
All housing from Sunday, May 18 – Saturday, August 30 costs $196.00/week or $28.00/day. Unless you have been approved to return early in August for a College program (i.e. Athletics, Dean of Students Office, etc.), you will have to continue to pay for housing through August 30. The residence halls re-open for the fall semester on Sunday, August 31.

If you are a CMC student, all billing will be applied to your CMC student account.

If you are not a CMC student, you must pay your rent on a weekly or quad-weekly basis – depending on your length of stay – to Lyn Hughes in the Dean of Students Office. Make checks payable to “Claremont McKenna College.” The first four weeks of rent for non-CMC students is required by Friday, May 16, prior to moving in to summer housing.

Changes in requested dates for summer housing will be allowed up until Thursday, May 22. After May 22, you will be billed for the dates that you requested. To change your requested dates for summer housing from what you submitted on your application, contact Lyn Hughes ( in the Dean of Students Office.

Transition Housing
For CMC students currently living in Berger, Benson, Marks, Green, or the Apartments, you must move out of your room when the residence halls close on Sunday, May 18, at 12:00pm and move into Stark Hall for transition housing. For CMC students currently living in Phillips, Beckett, Stark, Auen, Fawcett, Crown, Appleby, Boswell, or Wohlford who need transition housing, you may stay in your current room until you move into your summer housing on Friday, May 23 at 1:00pm. The Dean of Students Office will prepare special signs for you to post on your room door indicating that you have been approved to stay for transition housing.

There will be on-campus storage available during transition housing: before May 23 and after August 8. Transition storage costs $30.00/month. Transition storage is only available to summer housing residents.

Student Services
Many student services are unavailable during the summer, including the Health Center and Monsour Counseling and Psychological Services. Campus Safety and the Dean of Students Office continue to operate in the summer.

Conduct issues will initiate an investigation which could lead to the loss of summer housing privileges.

If you have questions about summer housing, please contact both of us.
