Summer Housing

Summer Housing Information

 

ELIGIBILITY

To be eligible for a summer term room, you must be one of the following:
  • Enrolled as a summer term student
  • Participating in a special summer research program at Trinity College
  • Working as an undergraduate summer term employee at Trinity College

Other Trinity College undergraduates will be considered after those listed above. Otherwise, summer term room reservations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.   Space is limited and once the summer buildings are full, no other buildings will be opened for summer use.  
 
 May 2014 graduates will only be considered for summer housing on a space available basis.
 
Please read the following information very carefully before applying.
 

WHEN AND WHERE

Summer residents will be housed in Summit Suites. Summit Suites consists of air-conditioned singles and quads with a single community kitchen per dorm.  Due to limited space, we anticipate all rooms will be filled.

Applications will be dated and assignments made in the order in which the applications are received. If you wish to request roommates, please be sure that all roommates hand in their applications as soon a possible.  Roommate requests are not guaranteed. A group assignment will not be made until all applications from that group are received.  If a room is not filled to capacity, Residential Life reserves the right to fill any vacancy throughout the summer.
 
DINING
Goldberg's On Campus, located in the Vernon Social Center, will be the only dining facility open this summer.
 

SUMMER HOUSING CHARGES BEGIN MAY 18

Summer residents will not transition to their summer assignments until they receive notification from their summer area coordinator.  No rooms will be ready for occupancy prior to May 18.

RESERVATION & RENTAL CHARGES

  • In order to reserve a summer term room, a completed Summer Term Residence Application must be submitted to Residential Life by Friday, April 25.
  • Cost of summer housing is $145 per week (Sunday – Saturday).  There is no meal plan.  
  • Payment for summer residence must be paid in full prior to the beginning of the summer housing term.
    • If you are covering your own expense, please submit your payment to the Office of Student Accounts by Friday, April 25. Please note that any payments that are returned for insufficient funds will nullify your contract.  You will have 5 business days from notification that your payment was insufficient to submit another payment to the Office of Student Accounts.  If payment is not made, your summer housing assignment will be cancelled.  Student Accounts will date the receipt of your application for assignment purposes.  
    • If your summer housing expense is being covered by a department (not a research grant through a faculty member), your department sponsor must submit an online Transfer of Funds to the Residential Life.   If a completed online form is not submitted, the application will be void.  
       
  • All summer residents will be held responsible for the condition of their rooms when checking out of summer housing.  Summer residents are expected to leave their rooms clean and free of trash and garbage.  Those who do not do so will be subject to excessive cleaning fees.  Departments who have agreed to cover housing costs will not be held responsible for excessive cleaning and/or damage that occurs over the summer. Fees incurred as a result of damage or excessive cleaning will be posted to the student’s fall tuition bill.  
     
  • Any summer residents who decide to leave summer housing earlier than anticipated must contact Residential Life in writing. A $100 fee may apply to residents who need a refund.  
     
  • Your room will be physically inspected by the summer area coordinators upon your departure.  Refunds will be based on the actual date that you vacate your summer housing assignment.  Failure to contact Residential Life with a different departure date than originally planned will result in denial of a refund.

 

ASSIGNMENTS

Please read the Summer Term Residence Application carefully and fill out the section on room/roommate preferences.  Assignments are made in the order in which they are received.  Applications are due by April 25.  Room assignments will be delivered via email to your Trinity College when your room is ready for occupancy.  Every attempt will be made to accommodate any preferences you make.  Bear in mind, it is a first-come, first-served basis.
 

ROOM ACCESS

Your personal access code will be programmed into your summer housing assignment only for the dates that you have indicated on your summer application (and only for the weeks that have been prepaid).  Summer term residents are expected to be familiar with and abide by the Residential Guidelines and Student Handbook’s policies and procedures.
