Summer Housing

Summer Housing is a great option for students who are taking summer session courses. Being steps away from classes and campus resources makes life easier for students.

Who is eligible for summer housing?

Students who are enrolled in the 2018 Summer Session and who have an on-campus housing assignment for the 2018 Fall Semester may choose to live in on-campus housing during any or all of the summer housing assignment dates, regardless of when summer classes begin or end.

Students who are enrolled in the 2018 Summer Session who do not have an on-campus housing assignment for the 2018 Fall Semester, 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 2018 housing application will open Wednesday April 18 at noon.

How to Apply

To apply for Summer Housing visit the Housing Application via the housing portal and following the instructions listed. 

Available Residence Halls

If you are attending summer classes, Cary & Belvidere is the available summer housing option. All apartments contain single bedrooms, shared bathrooms and shared kitchens/living rooms.

How It Works

If you are currently assigned to VCU Housing for Fall 2018 and will be registered for any summer class session, you will be permitted to request any or all summer 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 course(s) or the move-out date you indicate on your summer housing application.  Move-Out will always be the following Saturday after the end of classes.

Your official move-in and move-out dates will be noted on your Summer 2018 Housing Assignment Notification Letter, which will be sent to you via the VCU email system.

After submitting your summer housing application, if you decide to take additional summer classes, you must email the VCU Central Housing Office at
