Summer Housing, Residence Life | Earlham College


Tobacco -free -Logo

Earlham College is committed to providing a safe and healthy working and learning environment for the students, faculty, staff and visitors on its campus. As of July 1, 2016, Earlham College is a smoke and tobacco-free campus.

Summer Housing

Earlham College offers its enrolled students the opportunity to live on-campus during the summer months while they participate in May Term courses, pursue research with our faculty or work as summer college employees. Summer housing is only available for students who are enrolled in the college — students who have graduated or who have yet to begin their studies on-campus are not able to live on-campus during the summer. Any enrolled student interested in applying for summer housing should complete the Summer Housing Application.  Priority assignment will be given to students who apply by or before Friday, April 22, 2016.  Applications received after this date will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

Summer Location and Placement Process

Summer Housing will be located in Warren Hall and Wilson Hall for the 2016 Summer Term. Students who apply by April 22 will be placed in their summer housing room by their tier/lottery number.  Applications received after April 22 will be placed on a first-come, first-served basis. On the application, students are able to indicate their preferences for room type and roommates.

Transitioning To and From Summer Housing

The Office of Residence Life coordinates with students who are moving directly into their summer housing after the conclusion of the spring semester to ensure a smooth transition. Students will be able to stay in their current spring semester room after the end of the semester as Earlham College staff prepare their summer housing room for occupancy. At the end of the summer housing term, students will have the option to extend their summer housing contract and transition to their fall on-campus room, if they are living on-campus. The Office of Residence Life will work with students to have a seamless transition.

Summer Programming

The Office of Residence Life coordinates events and programs designed to build and sustain community throughout the summer for students living on-campus. On-campus living at Earlham College values building relationships between its residents as a continuing part of each student’s education. As part of this, each student living on-campus pays a one-time $15.00 program fee that sustains these activities and events. Resident Assistants work with summer residents to plan these events and are always looking for ideas from the greater community.
