Need to Apply for Summer Housing?

Apartments

The University Apartments offers 1, 2 and 4 bedroom apartments for approximately 2,100 students and students with families who want the benefits of living on-campus but are looking for something different than traditional residence hall living for the summer. Apply for summer apartment living in the myHousing Portal. If you are a current resident in the Gardens or White Creek Apartments and need to extend your 9 1/2 month contract to a 12 month contract, log in to myHousing Portal to request this change.

Residence Halls

What does it mean to live on campus? Well, it’s a lot more than having a place to sleep. If you have not yet applied for Summer School or Gateway housing, login to the myHousing Portal to apply.

Rates

Schuhmacher Hall will house students for the summer terms. Residence halls in our FHK Complex (Fowler, Hughes, & Keathley) may also be used to house students and Gateway.

Summer rates can be found on our Rates page and room floor plans can be found on the individual hall pages.

Packing

Living in a community space can be a lot of fun. To make sure our buildings are as safe as possible we have some items that we recommend every student bring, and items that are prohibited in the our facilities. Please review this list carefully before packing and coming to campus. You can find more specifics in our resident handbooks. We also provide some extras you may want to purchase or rent.
