General Information - Summer Housing

Thank you for your interest in summer housing. Students can be housed ONLY for sessions in which they are enrolled in an Emory summer program or classes. All summer school students are housed in Tower apartments only.

Community Living
As a member of the Emory University summer community, you have certain rights and responsibilities. As a resident, you have the right to pursue studies in a pleasant environment. Each community must establish certain rules and standards to ensure the best possible living conditions for its residents. As a student living on the Clairmont Campus for the summer, you have the responsibility to adhere to all federal, state, and local laws, as well as to the University and housing regulations and policies.

Guidelines have been established to promote the development of an environment that is suitable for the education and comfort of everyone involved. When these laws or policies are violated, the university is obligated to take action as part of the learning experience, teaching the individuals to be responsible for their actions. Any violation of community standards is a violation of your rights.

Students who violate university policies or the rights of others in the community are expected to accept responsibility for their actions and will be subject to the University Conduct Code and may be asked to vacate university housing for the summer.


Interim Housing
Summer Intern Housing Program
If you need interim housing and you are a part of the Summer Intern Housing Program, please add your dates to your application via the SIHP web portal.

Summer School Students
Summer school housing students may request housing for the dates in-between Spring and Summer, and in-between Summer and Fall semesters. There will be a flat rate charged for each of the interim housing time periods. Those who request interim housing must be able to move on the designated move dates. Interim housing is only available to those who have and will maintain a summer school housing assignment.
