Summer Policies for Single Graduates

Summer Matching in Graduate Housing

"Summer matching” may cause a student to be assigned to a residence not listed on his or her application. This occurs when a student applies for both summer and autumn housing. Housing Assignments will automatically assign a student to the same residence for Summer Quarter as they are assigned to for Autumn Quarter, pending availability.

Waiver of Cancellation Fees for Single Grads Assigned for Summer But Not for 2015-16

Students who apply in the First Round Lottery for summer housing and for 2015-16 housing may cancel their summer housing without a fee if assigned for summer but not for 2015-16. Students in this situation should cancel the summer contract through Axess and then submit a HelpSU to Student Housing referencing this policy.  Upon confirmation of eligibility for the waiver, the cancellation fee will be reversed.

Co-Term Students

Co-term students can only apply for graduate student housing in Axess. Co-term students currently in undergraduate housing and wishing to live in undergraduate housing for the summer should submit a HelpSU ticket to request that Housing Assignments create an undergraduate housing summer application which can then be edited by the student to reflect contract date and residence choice requests.


Reassignments are not offered for graduate students during the Summer Quarter unless medically necessary. Students should contact the Office of Accessible Education should the need arise.

Gender-Neutral Assignments

Only students who are assigned to gender-neutral housing for Autumn and are assigned to the same residence for the summer will be considered for gender-neutral housing for Summer. Please submit a Gender-Neutral Housing Petition in Axess if this applies.

Transgender Students

Transgender students may contact Jennifer Padilla-Wong, the Summer Housing Assignment Specialist, for a confidential assignment.
