2013 summer housing information

Summer Housing applications are now available via KeanWise.

Thank you for your interest in living on campus during the summer 2013 sessions. Priority will be given to students who submit complete applications by April 19, 2013 for summer session I and May 20, 2013 for summer session II. Students who do not receive a housing assignment will be placed on a waiting list based on the date the contract was received by the Office of Residential Student Services.

How to Apply for Housing

All summer session I and II residents will live in the New Upperclassmen Residence Hall. Please follow the steps below to select your housing space.

1) Fill out a Summer Session I or Summer Session II housing contract available via KeanWise. (There is no application fee for the summer sessions)

2) Make sure you include your personal preferences.

3) Include your roommate/suitemate request.  Please note that you will only be assigned with your roommate request if you both request each other and apply at the same time.

4) Submit the application by the deadline (April 19, 2013 for summer session I and May 20, 2013 for summer session II.)
