Summer Housing

Summer Housing is for students who are enrolled in a class for the 2019 Summer Session. Students enrolled for summer who are assigned to VCU on-campus housing for Fall 2019 may choose to live in university housing during any or all of the Summer 2019 housing assignment dates, regardless of when your summer classes begin or end. Students enrolled for summer who are not assigned to Fall housing may live in summer housing only during the time frame that corresponds to their summer class dates.

Non-VCU students are eligible for on-campus summer housing through VCU Conference Services.  Visit for additional information or sign up today using our reservation portal. For assistance, email VCU Conference Services at

When to Apply

The Summer 2019 housing application will open Monday, April 22nd at noon. 

How to Apply

Available Residence Halls

Student attending summer classes will be housed in Gladding Residence Center III. All rooms are single occupancy in a two or four person style suite (with limited double occupancy suites). Suites come with a living room, full size refrigerator, sink, and cabinet space, as well as a shared bathroom. In addition, a laundry room with washers and dryers is located on the first floor, & a full kitchen is located on each floor. Students supply cooking utensils, cleaning agents, and maintain & clean their suite. Please visit the Gladding Residence Center III page for more information, photos and a virtual tour. 

How It Works

If a student is currently assigned to VCU Housing for Fall 2019 and is registered for any summer class session, they are permitted to request any or all Summer 2019 housing assignment dates. However, please see the Transition Weeks exceptions, below, regarding online sign-up.

On the Summer Housing Application, a student will indicate the dates they 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.

A student's official move-in and move-out dates will be noted on their Summer 2019 Housing Assignment Notification Letter, which will be sent to students' VCU email on a rolling basis throughout the summer.

After submitting a electronic summer housing application, if a student decides to take additional summer classes, they will not be able to add more housing dates online. Instead, they must email the VCU Central Housing Office at Please include the student's name, student id number, cell phone number if applicable, and the summer week(s) they wish to sign-up for.
