Summer Housing

Summer Housing 2017

AVAILABILITY and ELIGIBILITY

Welcome to summer session at West Virginia University! Students can choose to live on the Evansdale Campus in Bennett Tower for all or part of the summer, and all billing is managed through the Office of Student Accounts. Students will also have the ability to select a meal plan ( http://diningservices.wvu.edu/dining-plans/summer-dining-plans). Housing is provided for students enrolled in WVU classes/seminars and University related internships for credit. Proof of student status or other University affiliation is required. Students are permitted to reside in the designated Summer Housing Residence Hall only while their classes are in session. They are not permitted to remain in the Residence Hall when not registered or when classes have ended.

There are limited spaces available for summer school housing this semester.  Students must print and complete the summer school application and bring it to the Housing Assignments Office located in M63 Brooke Tower or visit the office to receive an application.  You may also FAX your application to 304-293-4516, or mail your application to the Housing Assignments Office.  You will receive notification of your assignment to your MIX account, and this will serve as your housing contract.  The last day to cancel the housing contract is the day BEFORE your summer classes are scheduled to begin.
