Summer 2021, May 23rd to August 16th

Due to the impact of the current Covid-19 pandemic, Summer Housing will be limited for summer 2021.

Apply for Summer Housing

A limited amount of housing is available to undergraduate Wheaton students who need to remain on campus over the summer. Priority is given to students with housing insecurity and those who are restricted by travel. Second priority is for out of state students who are on-campus employees or those who need to be on campus for some type of academic pursuit (faculty research, local internship, etc).

Summer Housing

The summer housing term begins the week after commencement and ends in mid-August. The application to apply for summer housing will be sent out to students in April.

Cost & Billing

$650 for the whole summer. For those who vacate prior to August 16th, that fee will be prorated based on the date you move out and return your key (using a weekly proration schedule).

What if I Can’t Afford $650?

Students may apply for a fee waiver with SFS. To apply for a fee waiver, you must be approved to live on campus. Please email with your name and they will work with students individually.

Early Departure

Residents who move out prior to August 16th, should email at least two days before they leave. Rooms will need to be vacated and keys returned to Campus Safety before any adjustment is made to summer housing charges.

Dining & Food Pantry

Summer Housing does not include a meal plan and access to food on campus will be extremely limited. Students will be able to utilize the on-campus food pantry, and there may be limited dining options available, though not guaranteed. Students may utilize residential common-area kitchens to cook.

Housing Assignment

Room assignments will be determined before senior week.  All rooms will continue to have only one occupant, and anyone relocating rooms should expect that to be scheduled the week of May 23rd at the latest.

Will I have to move?

Summer housing will be exclusively in Pine Hall. In most cases, you should expect to move. Final determination on relocations will be made in early May after all requests have been submitted and assessed. Anyone relocating rooms should expect that to be scheduled the week of May 23rd at the latest.

What if I’m still unsure about needing housing?

If you are still unsure if you will need to remain on campus, please STILL COMPLETE the housing request form. It will be much harder for us to fit you back into housing, then to take you out.

Will other campus facilities be open?

You should expect that campus buildings and facilities will be closed or limited throughout the summer.
