Summer Program Housing

During each summer, the University of Rochester welcomes students to live in our residence halls if they are taking classes, working on campus, or participating in a Sponsored Program. Living in UR’s residence halls provides a safe, comfortable, and convenient place while you are attending classes, completing internships, and or working for the College. Please click the various links to learn more about summer housing and to get the application.

Please note:

  • Information regarding summer housing is updated after spring break.
  • Applicants for Sponsored Programs have a separate housing application, be sure to use the right one.
  • Linen and storage facilities are not provided.

Locations and Checking In

Summer Housing will be located in Quad Residence Halls. The Summer Service Desk will be located in Gilbert Hall. When checking in, come to Gilbert Hall with your University ID Card or other form of identification. The Service Desk will assist students who wish to check in, check out, and return their Summer room keys.


Most Students will be housed in double occupancy rooms. If you know someone whom you want to room with, speak with this person, and then mutually request each other on the Summer Housing application.


The University is not responsible for your personal property. Consider obtaining renter's insurance or speaking with a parent/guardian regarding coverage for your personal property.
