2017 Summer Housing

How do I sign up for summer housing?

To sign up for summer housing please fill out the summer housing form. Specific building logistics have not been worked out at this time; therefore you will not be able to choose a specific apartment. If you do not have a roommate you will be placed with another student.

Summer housing will be available in the Lord Residential Center. All apartments are furnished with a full kitchen. A meal plan is not available in the summer. There is one option for summer housing in the Lord Center apartments: 2 people per apartment at $15 per day per student.

 
2017-18 Housing Information
Returning Student Housing Selection Process 

Housing assignments are completed online during the month of February and March. An email will be sent to all students regarding the 2-step process for signing up for housing. Students must complete the Returning Student Housing Application in WebAdvisor whether they plan to live on or off campus or in a fraternity house. Sign-ups are according to the average number of hours of all those intending to sign up together and each group will choose a group leader. The group leader will be assigned a housing selection time based on the most recent high school graduation year and average amount of hours for roommate/suitemates. Only the group leader will have access to the room selection process.

Southwestern has a 2-year housing requirement therefore all first and second year students are required to live on campus.
