Summer Housing requests should be submitted using this Summer Housing Registration Form


Summer Move-Out

Summer residents who will also live on campus during the fall semester will move to their fall assignment the week of July 22nd. Fall residents must plan to be on campus this week to complete their move.

Summer residents who will not live on campus or who will not attend Oberlin in the fall must move out of their summer assignment by 4 pm on August 4, 2024.


Q. Can I stay in my spring 2024 housing assignment over the summer?

A. No, students staying for summer housing must move to the designated summer housing location. 

Q. If I plan to stay the entire summer but leave for two weeks, will I be charged for the two weeks I'm away from campus?

A. Yes, charges will apply during your absence. However, if you opt to vacate the room for the specified two-week period, no charges will be incurred. Prior arrangements with the Office of Residence Life are necessary, and all belongings must be cleared from the room. Upon your return to campus, availability of the same room cannot be guaranteed.

Q. If I have a Fall 2024 assignment in Firelands, can I be placed in the same room for the summer?

A. It depends on a few circumstances, but we will try to place Fall 24 Firelands residents in the same room for the summer. 

Q. I want to return early for the fall semester. Should I submit my request using the Summer Housing Registration?

A. Residence Life is currently not accepting summer housing registrations for dates starting in August. However, students interested in returning early for the fall 2024 semester should submit their request using the Fall Early Arrival Registration Form.

If a student works for a department over the summer, the department may request housing for the student. The housing cost is $125 per week and will be charged to the FOP provided by the department. 

Department requests should be submitted using the Summer Housing Registration Form

For departments submitting more than four students' names, please upload an Excel spreadsheet with the following columns: student's name, student T#, the student's email, and dates needing to stay.
