Summer Housing

Summer Housing 2020

AVAILABILITY and ELIGIBILITY

Welcome to summer term at West Virginia University! Students may live in Oakland Hall for all or part of the summer, and all billing is managed through the Office of Student Accounts. Students may choose a WVU dining plan. WVU Residence Hall housing is available for students enrolled in WVU classes/seminars and University-related internships for credit. Proof of student status or other University affiliation is required. Students may reside in Oakland Hall, the designated Summer Housing Residence Hall only while their classes are in session. They are not permitted to remain in Oakland Hall when not registered or when classes have ended.

There are limited spaces available for summer school housing. Students may apply for housing online. Confirmation of your reservation will be sent to your MIX account, and this will serve as their housing contract. Your specific room assignment will be provided when you check in at Oakland Hall. The last day to cancel the housing contract is the day BEFORE your summer classes are scheduled to begin. 

Complete this simple form to reserve your space and we'll look forward to seeing you this summer.
