Summer Housing Information
Students are encouraged to submit summer housing application materials early to ensure an assignment. Students must be enrolled for a minimum of three (3) credit hours to be eligible to reside on campus.
All room assignments must be occupied by the "No-Show" deadline of 6:00 p.m. on the first day of classes. If you will be arriving later than 6:00 p.m., please contact University Housing at (828) 262-6111 to notify staff of your late arrival. If an assignment is not occupied by the "No-Show" deadline and no arrangements for a late arrival have been made, the space is subject to reassignment.
The University reserves the right to:
- Cancel or change the assignment in the interest of order, health, sanitation or other urgent reasons.
- Collect charges for damages or the unauthorized use or alteration of a room, equipment or building and for special cleaning necessitated by improper use of a room and/or equipment.
The University is incurring an administrative expense to hold a space for a student. If a student has been assigned a space on campus and decides to cancel the space prior to the start of the summer session to live off-campus, the student will be charged a $75 cancellation fee to cover administrative costs.
(Check-in for Summer Session I & II will be at the Mountaineer Hall main office from 1:00pm - 4:00pm)

Students who do not check into their assigned space prior to 6:00pm on the first day of classes for each session that they are attending will be declared a "no-show" and forfeit their space in the residence hall. Students declared as "no-shows" will be held responsible for all housing-related charges for the session if they are still enrolled for that session.
The hall(s) used for the first five-week term assignment will remain open between summer sessions. Students not pre-registered for the second five-week term must officially check out by the scheduled times listed below.
Students living on campus for the second summer session must move out of their room assignment by the closing date noted below. Students will be permitted to move into their fall room assignment at the conclusion of the second summer session. Dates and times for key pick-up will be communicated directly to second summer session residents. Summer Session II students who check into their fall room assignment will pay a nightly rate. Summer Session II students who only want to move their belongings into their fall assignment may do so for a small storage fee.
