Summer Session Housing Application | Boston-Area Summer Housing
Summer Session dates are available below. Rates are being finalized and will be viewable below by Friday, March 17. Once rates are finalized the Summer Session Application will be available here. Students interested in living in the Amherst area over the summer are also encouraged to research off-campus options as well.
Summer housing is available to the following groups of residents who are at least 16 Years of age*:
- Students enrolled in UMass Amherst Summer Session classes.
- UMass Amherst students employed on-campus that requires you to be on-site. Applicants must document employment and be enrolled for fall 2023.
Summer Session assignments will be private and shared rooms located in CHCRC. There are a limited number of private rooms available for both Summer Session I and Summer Session I and II. If there is not a private room available, then Residential Life Staff will reach out to the student to discuss other options.
Summer residents are expected to conduct themselves according to University policies as outlined in the Code of Student Conduct. All summer residents must have a valid UMass Amherst ID Card (UCard). The UCard is used as the key to the main entrance of the residence hall. All residents are expected to carry their UCards. When campus staff ask residents for identification, the UCard must be presented. To preserve Residence Hall Security, the UCard must never be loaned to anyone.
