Students are only eligible for housing during the time they are working and they must be employed the entire time they are on campus. 

Housing may begin no earlier than one day prior to beginning work and may end no later than one day after completing work.

The earliest students can move into summer housing is 9 PM on Tuesday, May 29. Dorm keys can be picked up from Public Safety's Office of Access and Parking Services during open office hours.

All summer jobs must conclude by August 22, the end of summer housing. Summer job extensions/early fall arrivals previously approved by the Student Employment Office are the only exceptions.  Supervisors: see the Job Extension/Early Arrival Request Form link on the left side of the page.
