Maymester Housing

Thank you for your interest in Maymester housing. Students can be housed ONLY for Maymester if they are enrolled in Maymester classes. If you are in Atlanta for a summer internship or some other academically-related pursuit, please refer to our Summer Intern Housing website.

Summer students applying for Maymester housing will be assigned to Clairmont Tower, situated at Clairmont Campus. The apartments have central heat and air-conditioning, and are equipped with a stove, oven, refrigerator, mini-blinds, and carpet. All utilities are included in the rental price. Apartments are either one-, two-, or three-bedroom; the rooms are doubles or supersingles.




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 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.

Opening Day
You are to report directly to Clairmont Tower on opening day. The Maymester schedule and the opening and closing of housing is as follows:

Maymester students may begin checking in at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, May 13. Students must move in no later than 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 14.

Classes begin on Tuesday, May 14
Last day of class is Friday, May 31

Interim Housing
Maymester housing students may request housing for the dates in-between Spring moveout and Maymester. There will be a flat rate charged for any student who requests interim housing, but does not move into Maymester Housing. There is no charge for interim housing if the student moves in and remains for Maymester. Those who request interim housing must be able to move on May 10th. Interim housing is only available to those who have and will maintain a Maymester housing assignment.

Email housing@emory.edu to request interim housing. Your request must be received by April 22, 2013. Requests received after that date may not be approved. You must be able to move in on the date indicated unless otherwise approved in writing by our office.

Provisions for Students with Special Needs

If you have a physical impairment that may require a special assignment or accommodation, please contact and register with the Office of Access, Disability Services, and Resources (ADSR) at 404-727-6016. Approved registered students will receive an assignment based on the accommodation needs recommended by ADSR pending room type availability.
