Summer Housing

On-campus housing is typically available for both undergraduate and graduate students who will be taking courses, conducting research, or engaging in other academically related programs during the summer. The number and types of residence halls and houses available each summer depend on numerous factors; you can inquire about the residence halls and houses available for summer use by contacting the RLH Office. If you have a spring housing assignment, you may be able to transition directly from semester housing to summer housing and vice-versa with no gaps in between.

Late Stay

Students looking to transition from semester housing to summer housing with no gaps in between will need to apply for Late Stay housing. Requests are due to Residential Life & Housing via this form by Friday, May 6, 2022 at 11:59PM.

Summer Storage

Clark University does not have the ability to store personal belongings for students during the summer. Students are able to work with off-campus vendors to store items as needed. Clark University has a relationship with Collegeboxes.

Collegeboxes, the official storage and shipping provider for Clark University, provides a seamless, affordable, and safe way for students to move out for the summer. Simply create an account on Collegeboxes.com to secure your service and order supplies. Pack up your items, label, and leave them right in your room when you head home. We will provide Collegeboxes with access to your room after you have departed campus. Collegeboxes will pick up the items and store or ship them to a destination of your choice.

For the Spring 2022 semester, order by April 29th, 2022 for service.

Summer housing on campus is limited. Summer housing requests will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and students experiencing housing insecurity, taking in-person classes at Clark, and students working or doing research in-person will be prioritized for summer housing. We do not guarantee summer housing, so encourage students to apply early and plan accordingly.
