- Before signing a Summer Housing contract, please read the Terms and Conditions Supplement for Summer Housing. This is in addition to the 2012-13 Terms and Conditions of the Graduate Housing/Dining Agreement. Summer Housing is not guaranteed and late applicants will be considered only upon availability.
- Summer Housing for current G/C Annex students begins on Sunday May 26, 2013 and ends on August 24, 2013. Summer Housing for all other graduate students, (not incoming), begins on June 9th, 2013. If you have a GC/Annex Housing contract for the 2013-14 academic year, you may remain in Summer Housing until August 28, 2013 under the Summer Housing rate.
- If you do not have a GC/Annex contract for the 2013-14 academic year, please be advised that you must vacate Summer Housing no later than Saturday, August 24, 2013. There can be no exceptions made for moving out after this date.

A maximum of two separate Summer Housing contracts will be allowed per student and there is no guarantee that the same room will be assigned. A minimum of two weeks is required between contracts and all personal belongings must be removed from the room, even if you have retained the room for the 2013-14 academic year.
Please note that there is no room draw for Summer Housing and all room assignments will be made by the Housing Office.
- Only students with a full Summer Housing contract who also have a new room assignment in the GC/Annexes for the 2013-14 academic year will move from their current room during the summer. These students will remain in their current room until contacted by the Housing Office. The Housing Office will provide the student with a move date according to the information that he/she provides on their Summer Housing application. It is, therefore, important for students to provide accurate information regarding their summer housing plans.
- Students who do not have a fall assignment in the GC/Annexes will remain in their current room for the duration of their summer contract provided that the room is available and not part of a maintenance or renovation project.
- Students who are assigned to multiple occupancy rooms for the summer should always be prepared for the potential arrival of a fellow graduate student. At no time should a student in a multiple occupancy room dominate the entire room.
