Frequently Asked Questions
Summer housing is available on both the Lake Shore and Water Tower Campuses for students taking summer school classes. Below you will find the answers to the most frequently asked questions!
- Do I need to be taking classes to live in the halls over the summer?
Yes. We require students to be registered in at least one class for each session they are applying to live in our Lake Shore Campus summer housing. For our Water Tower Campus, students only taking one class will live in Baumhart for the entire summer.
- Where can I live on campus for the summer?
- If you would like to live at the Lake Shore Campus then you will live in Bellarmine Hall.
- If you would like to live at the Water Tower Campus then you will live in Baumhart Hall.
- Where do I find prices for summer housing?
- You can find them on our website in the Current Student tab and the Summer Housing link: http://www.luc.edu/reslife/currentstudents/summerhousing/
- What are the guest check in/out procedures for summer housing?
- The guest check in and out procedures are the same for summer as they are for the Upper Class halls. All guests must be checked in and out and must stay with their host at all times. However there are no overnight passes or gender restrictions.
- Can I stay between spring and summer semesters?
- Information on the summer transition can be found on our website at the following link: http://www.luc.edu/reslife/currentstudents/summerhousing/
- Can I be released from Summer Housing after signing up?
- If you are still enrolled in classes during the summer then no, it is a binding contract just as it is throughout the regular academic year.
- If you have dropped your summer classes then yes. You will be required to move out of your summer assignment if at any point you drop your classes.
- Bellarmine Hall is not available for me to select on the Housing Application.
- The application is set to read your class standing, so it will allow you to rank buildings that are available during the fall and spring semesters (example: Juniors will see Fordham, Santa Clara and Baumhart). However, we will assign you to Bellarmine Hall regardless as that is our only summer housing option. To record your preferences for summer housing room type and campus location, you will need to select a building on your preferred campus and a room type that is the same as your desired room (example: if you want a double for summer housing in Bellarmine, you would select a Fordham double from the example above).
- I don’t see a single room as an option, how do I request a single?
- You will need to select a single in a different residence hall on your desired campus (example: select a single in Seattle or Fordham to show your intent to live in a single).
- How many singles are available in Bellarmine?
- The singles will be in the studio doubles in Bellarmine. The availability of singles depends on the demand, and the selection is a first come first serve for the summer.
- Is there a deadline for turning in the summer housing application?
- Assignments will begin the first week of April. There is no official deadline, as we will be accepting applications throughout the summer. However availability is on a first come first serve basis and students should turn in applications sooner rather than later.
