Summer Housing

A limited amount of Summer housing available to Wheaton students who wish to remain on campus.  Because space is limited, priority is given to first Wheaton Fellows/On Campus Employees and Summer Students.  Secondarily, any remaining space would be available to students with with local jobs and internships.

Wheaton Fellowships & On Campus Jobs

Students who have a full-time campus job (averaging over 20 hours per week) or have received Wheaton Fellowships will be given priority in consideration for summer housing.  Additional priority will be given to these students who need housing for the entire summer as opposed to requests for only a portion of the summer.  To be granted priority consideration, applications must be submitted prior to the priority deadline.

Summer Students

Wheaton students taking classes here for the summer are also given priority housing consideration for the summer term.  For housing, the summer term begins the day before classes start and ends the day after classes end.  To be granted priority consideration, applications must be submitted prior to the priority deadline.

Once you have registered for your course, you can submit your housing application.  Enrollment will be confirmed by the Registrar's Office.  Please follow this link for more information about the Summer Session.

Housing after the summer session is over may be requested. You must have a reason to be on campus (job, internship, etc.).  Housing is not guaranteed and will be offered based on availability.

Other Wheaton Students

After the priority deadline other applications will be considered based on availability.  Priority will be given to:

  1. Full-Time Employees & Wheaton Fellows wanting weekly rate
  2. Students with local commitments wanting the entire summer
  3. Students with local commitments wanting weekly rates
  4. Students with any local commitment who have just graduated in May.

You must be able to explain and justify your obligations to live on campus in the summer.  You can apply at any time, but applications will only be considered after the priority deadline.


The fee schedule for the summer of 2015:

  • Full Summer - $500
  • Summer Session - TBA
  • Weekly Rate  - $75

Once your application is approved, your student account will be billed for the appropriate amount.

Rooms Available

Rooms will be awarded on a first-come first-serve basis based on preferences and availability.  Singles are not guaranteed.  You can request to live with a specific roommate.  Exact buildings are yet to be determined.

Assignments are usually sent in the first week of May.

Moving In

Summer Housing starts on May 21st (May 18th for Summer Session students).

Please note:  Halls close on Saturday, May 10th at 8pm.  Due to the housing needs of Reunion weekend, students wishing to remain on campus through the start of the summer housing may need to move to a temporary location depending on where you are currently living.

If you have to move, you should expect to have to move on that Saturday when your temporary room is available.  More details about that move, including locksmith hours will be e-mailed to you in May.  Please plan accordingly.

Senior Week

Those who are housed for the Spring Term and are granted Summer Housing can request to remain on campus between the Spring and Summer sessions.  Depending on where you live on campus, you may have to move to a temporary location during senior week before your summer assignment is available.

Senior Week housing requests that do not include summer housing will only be accepted if you need to be on campus for an on-campus job or are part of an in-season athletic team.  Those requests must be made on your behalf to Ed Burnett by your faculty/staff supervisor or coach.
