Rates & Available Locations

Time Period Non-AC Double Double w/ AC Single w/ AC
Session 1 only (5/27 - 12noon 7/5) $294 $1230 $1464
Session 2 only (7/7 - 5pm 8/9) $249 $1041 $1239

The prices above do not include the $50 application fee.

Summer 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 SRI grants may be allowed to cover students' charges and are subject to approval by 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). Students may request via the online housing application to upgrade to a single or air-conditioned room (in CG, Plimpton, or Elliott); however, due to the limited number of spaces available, upgrades are not guaranteed and usually not likely.

Assignment to singles and/or room with AC will be prioritized first (after disability accommodations) 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 prioritized by application date, students who apply for both Sessions vs. just one Session, and class year.

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