Summer Housing

Summer Housing is for students enrolled in a class for the 2017 Summer Session. Students enrolled for summer who are assigned to VCU housing for Fall 2017 may choose to live in university housing during any or all of the Summer 2017 housing assignment dates, regardless of when your summer classes begin or end. Students not assigned to Fall housing but enrolled in summer courses may live in summer housing only during the period that corresponds to their summer class dates.

Non-VCU students are ineligible for on-campus summer housing. For assistance, contact VCU Conference Services via email at

When to Apply

The Summer 2016 housing application will open Tuesday April 18th 2017 at noon.

Summer Housing Dates

If you are currently assigned to VCU Housing for Fall 2017 and will be registered for any summer class session, you will be permitted to request any or all Summer 2017 housing assignment dates. However, please see the Transition Weeks exceptions, below, regarding online sign-up.

On your summer housing application, you will indicate the dates you wish to reside on campus.  Move-In dates correspond to the Sunday immediately prior to the start date for each summer class session. Move-Out is based on the final date of your summer class(es) or the move-out date you indicate on your summer housing application.  Move-Out will always be the following Saturday from the end of classes.

Your official move-in and move-out dates will be noted on your Summer 2017 Housing Assignment Notification Letter, which will be sent to you via the VCU email system.

After submitting your electronic summer housing application, if you decide to take additional summer classes, you will not be able to add more housing dates online. Instead, you must email the VCU Central Housing Office at
