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.

The Summer Housing application will open on Monday, April 8, 2024 and close on Friday,  April 26, 2024.

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. The Late Stay housing application will open on Monday, April 8, 2024 and close on Friday, April 26, 2024 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 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.


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.


Summer housing starts on Sunday, May 26, 2024 and ends on Saturday, August 3, 20234. Students approved to stay for Summer housing may remain in their Spring Housing or be relocated to a different short term housing until June 7, 2024. Summer students will transition into the summer housing building starting June 7, 2024.

Students must plan to be available for the summer housing move in date during the weekend of June 7, 2024.


The cost for Summer Housing is billed per week. The week starts on Sunday and ends on Saturday. Should you move-out of Summer Housing mid week, you will still be charged for the full week.

                  Cost per week: $210
                  Cost for full Summer Housing (May 26- August 3): $2100*
                              *Cost for full Summer Housing excludes any Spring 2023 late
