Students can choose between a $300 and $500 declining balance plan as part of their housing application. Residents of facilities other than Marycrest can elect a meal plan, but are not required. 

Cancellation Policy:

Once a Summer Housing Application/Contract is submitted to Housing and Residence Life, a student is committed to the summer housing fee unless the application is canceled as identified below:

  • Email including student name, student ID#, and summer assignment.  This is required no later than Monday, April 24, 2017.
  • If application contract is canceled after April 24 and before move-in, a $100.00 cancellation fee will be charged to the student's account.
  • If application contract is canceled after move in, in addition to the $100.00 cancellation fee, the student’s account will reflect a daily rate charge beginning May 14, 2017 through date of check out.

First and Second Summer Session Charges:

  • Full (12 weeks) summer housing charges will appear on student’s account in May. Student accounts will be adjusted for students who complete a proper check out at the end of the first summer session. This includes students who attend all or part of either summer session (ie: Civil Engineering students). Summer housing charges will not be divided by first and second summer sessions.
  • Students will be credited for days not in University housing if they properly check out of their residence and return their residence key to the appropriate staff by June 25, 2017. Students who check out after June 25 will receive no summer housing rate adjustment.
  • Students who are only assigned during the second summer session will receive their summer housing charge on their student account in June.

How to Apply for Summer Housing

To be considered for summer assignment, individual applications and group applications must be completed online as soon as possible. Space in summer housing is limited and is assigned on a first-come first-serve basis, we are unable to guarantee summer housing. Students are encouraged to apply as early as they are aware they will need housing. Applications are available beginning on April 11, 2017. Go to to complete your Summer Housing Application.

Summer Housing Application Deadlines

Once a Summer Housing Application is completed online, a student is committed to summer housing. Students assigned to Marycrest Complex for the summer will receive a specific room number when they arrive at the Marycrest Main Desk for move-in. If summer assignments and/or roommate changes occur, students will be updated by email. Campus email addresses found in Porches are used for all email correspondence.

Housing Before and After Summer Housing Contract Period

Students who have a need to be on campus between contracted periods in May and August, should complete an application for extended stay / early arrival. An application for this process will be available at Applications for extended stay/early arrival periods are separate from summer housing requests. Spring extended stay applications are available beginning April 10, 2017 and fall Early Arrival applications are available in mid-July.  Students with questions related to extended stay or early arrival housing should contact Housing and Residence Life at

Please note for your planning: Spring semester housing contracts end and all University residential facilities will close to non-graduating students at 6 pm on Friday, May 5, 2017. Students with approved extensions who are moving directly from Spring housing to a summer facility will be required to move to that summer facility on Monday, May 9, 2017 at 12:00 noon.

Students who do not live in summer University Housing will not be able to move into their fall university assignment until August 20, 2017.  Those students who reside in University Housing during the summer will be transitioned to their fall assignment when that property is available. If they are transitioned before the end of the summer term, they will not be charged a different rate during the summer term. However, students that move into their Fall assignment during the summer will be subject to an early arrival charge for the entire period between the end of the summer contract and the beginning of the fall contract. 


Random roommates will not be assigned to Marycrest double rooms, and single occupants of a double room will be charged a single room rate.
