Summer Housing

Summer Housing

Summer stays are offered in two categories: by the summer session or short-term stay by the week up to three weeks; one-week minimum. All stays must begin May 15, 2023. We do not offer a per-night rate.

For students staying in Rochester this summer, it's crucial to keep in mind the dates on summer leases and the move-in calendar when making plans, as leaving a summer rental before August 26 without alternative housing could end up costing more than expected; early arrivals for individual students are not permitted, so it's important to have alternative housing plans in place during the gap between leases and move-in day. This also applies when considering a "bridge contract" for summer housing.

Summer housing applications
Summer contracts are currently being accepted. The priority deadline is May 1.

Summer housing contracts are no longer being accepted for Summer 2023. 

Moving out of Summer Housing & the Bridge Contract

The Bridge period in 2023 is from 8/5 – 8/25. This is one charge of $500, and students cannot sign up for a partial bridge contract. Only students enrolled in summer housing are eligible for the bridge contract. Students will move to their fall housing during the first week of August. Those students who will not be in residential housing must move out Saturday, August 5, 2023.

Summer Housing Locations

The Office for Residential Life will use Susan B. Anthony Hall, Genesee Hall, and Brooks Crossing for summer housing. In apartments, all rooms within an apartment will have students assigned to them.
