Campus Housing & Dining
Students attending summer session are not required to live in university housing; however, housing will be available for students who need to reside on campus. We have limited housing available to students over the summer months. Summer residents will have roommates (in rooms designed for more than one person) as we try to accommodate as many students in the housing options we have available over the summer. Summer housing options include the following: 94A Rowland (SLU), 94B Rowland (SLU), 110A Rowland (SLU), 110B Rowland (SLU), 118A Rowland (SLU), 118B Rowland (SLU), and Honors House. Students will be assigned to space on a first come, first served basis, up to the maximum capacity.
Students must complete an online summer housing application by April 22, 2022.
In Summer 2022, we are introducing new and simplified break housing rates. All students, regardless of their purpose on campus over the breaks (winter and summer), will pay a weekly housing rate based on the type of room they choose to live in. The multiple occupancy summer housing rate is $140/week. The single room summer housing rate is $175/week. Housing rates will be prorated based on your move-in and move-out dates.
Smith Dining operates during the summer months when campus and conferences are visiting campus and eating meals. If you wish to eat in Smith Dining when it's open over the summer, you can pay cash at the entrance of Smith Dining. The schedule for summer meals will be shared via the AVI website. While Smith Dining will not be open for all meals, it will be open often. All summer housing options have a full kitchen.
As most summer classroom courses are held in the morning, the temperature is rarely uncomfortable. Many classes are taught in air-conditioned buildings. Beeghly Library is open during the summer session, as are the Branch Rickey Center (Branch Rickey Arena and Racquetball Courts and Gordon Field House), Edwards Gym, Morrill Strength & Conditioning Room, and the Simpson Querrey Fitness Center. In these facilities students have access during open hours to basketball and racquetball courts, indoor tennis courts and track, weight room, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. While there are regular operating hours throughout the summer, Summer Conferences and Camps do use several of the facilities, so at times not all facility spaces are available. Operating hours can be found in the Recreation menu at www.battlingbishops.com.
Automobiles and Motorcycles
Public Safety maintains a full complement of staff and continuing services and support during the summer months as during the academic year. During summer session, vehicle registration is not required. Space for student automobiles is designated in University parking lots. Please obey the parking signs on the various campus parking lots.
The Student Health Center will be open limited hours in June for students enrolled in summer school. Please call the Health Center if an appointment is needed at 740-368-3160 as open dates and times may vary per week. The Student Health Center will be closed in July and will reopen at the beginning of the upcoming academic year. Students will not need to make a co-payment for office visits to the Student Health Center. Insurance claims will be submitted only for visits that require resources outside the clinic, such as X-rays or laboratory tests that require outside processing. Some basic medications and vaccinations also will be available to students at no cost, including flu shots and common antibiotics.
For care when the Health Center is closed, please go to our Emergency Room & Urgent Care Facilities page for a list of options.
