2019 Full-Price Summer Housing

  • Online Application Form -- deadline 4pm Tuesday, April 30, 2019
  • $50 non-refundable application fee when you submit the online application

Eligibility & Priority

Currently matriculated Barnard students in good standing who will be enrolled at the College for the Fall 2019 semester are eligible to apply for summer housing.

Students who graduate in May 2019, visiting students, and/or students not currently enrolled (i.e. students on leave or requesting to return for Fall 2019) are not eligible to for summer housing. Students who take a leave of absence will cease to be eligible and must vacate summer housing.

There are a limited number of spaces available, so summer housing (or assignment to a particular room type) is not guaranteed. Priority will be determined by a combination of date of application, class year, whether students are applying for both or just one of the summer sessions, and whether they will be living in campus housing for Fall 2019 or not.

Students who are not eligible for summer housing are encouraged to check out the links to alternative summer housing opportunities at http://barnard.edu/reslife/summerhousing/#other.
