Please note that visiting students and/or students not currently enrolled (i.e. students on leave or newly enrolling for Fall 2016) are not eligible for College-Subsidized Summer Housing.

Students must be in "good standing" to be considered (no outstanding Bursar holds, disciplinary probation, etc).

Please note that Residential Life & Housing is not in charge of the approval process and cannot answer questions for individual students as to whether their position is eligible or not for College-Subsidized Summer Housing and/or which positions are part of the Summer Research Institute (SRI).

Students may work one or more positions that total 30+ hours; however, each position that contributes towards the 30+ hour total must meet the eligibility criteria. Students who qualify for College-Subsidized Summer Housing by working in more than one location must obtain the required signatures for each position (see Application process below).

Students whose Barnard employment or College-sponsored internship terminates (or who withdraw from the College) will cease to be eligible and must vacate summer housing.

Application Fee $50 non-refundable $50 non-refundable fee for all applications
(payable to Bursar office, 015 Milbank)

Please note that the application fee must be paid by the student to the Bursar office and is non-refundable. Housing charges will be billed to student accounts and may not be paid by a sponsoring department or program. A limited number of approved outside grants may be allowed to cover students' housing charges and are subject to approval by the area's Dean/VP/Provost (the charges will still be posted to student accounts, before being paid by the grant).

Eligible students will be provided with an assignment to a non-air-conditioned double room (in 600 W 116th St) at the rate of $540 per Summer Session (i.e. 50% of rate for students paying full price for summer housing). Students who are part of the Summer Research Institute (SRI) will receive a non-air-conditioned double room at no charge ($0), but still must pay the $50 application fee.

Students may request via the online housing application to upgrade to an air-conditioned single or double room (CG or Plimpton); however, due to the limited number of spaces available, upgrades are not guaranteed and not likely. The upgrade prices for these room types are covered in the chart above.

Assignment to AC singles & doubles will be prioritized first to students who are paying full-price for their summer housing. If any spaces are left over after assignment full-price students, they will be assigned to College-Subsidized students by class year (students who apply for both Summer Sessions will be prioritized ahead of students who only apply for one Session). Students who may need an AC room for a diagnosed disability or medical condition should submit a Disability Housing Request before 4pm Friday, April 22, 2016 (see below for more information).

Please note that students may not possess, install, or use window or portable air-conditioners in any rooms/buildings.

Housing in Plimpton will be restricted to 4 floors. Because the rest of the building will be in use by Summer programs and conference groups, residents will only be able to access the floor they are assigned to, the TV Lounge, and the laundry room. Access to the study lounge and computer lab will not be available in Plimpton.

Any student whose summer room assignment has not yet been cleaned by the Facilities office by the start of Summer Session 1 or 2 may be required to move into a temporary room (in Reid Hall) until their summer assignment is available.
