Summer Academic Housing

What is Summer Housing


There's no need to commit to a lease/sublet for the entire summer.  Live with other summer academic students in one of our residence halls with access to a fully staffed main desk and a residence director on duty 24/7. Questions? Email us at:

LOCATION: Marsh/Austin/Tupper (subject to change)

Who Can Apply

You must be enrolled in at least one UVM summer academic class. If you drop the class, you will be required to move out within 24 hours. It is possible to sign up to stay through between sessions, but there cannot be more than a one-week gap between the end of one session and the beginning of the next. 

Need to be on campus this summer,  but not taking summer classes?  University Event Services provides non-academic temporary  and  intern  housing for those taking non-credit-bearing classes, pursuing internships, or employed in summer jobs. Please contact or see their FAQs for more information. 

If you have questions regarding summer housing, please contact

When to Apply

Registration for Summer Academic Housing will open in the Spring. You can apply for Summer Academic Housing by filling out the "Summer Academic Request form" in the housing portal. If you are new to UVM, you’ll need to activate your NetID before you can request housing. Once we verify your enrollment status, we’ll send you a link to our summer academic housing contract. 

Bridge Housing

“Bridge” housing is available for no charge  for students who: 

  • live on campus during the spring semester and enroll in the first summer session
  • enroll in the last summer session and will be living on campus in the fall

Students approved for bridge housing between the spring semester and the first week of summer academic housing will stay in their spring room during the bridge week and move into their summer room the weekend before summer classes start.

Refunds:  Our summer academic housing refund policy is the same as UVM’s tuition-refund policy. Once a course begins, there is a fixed period called the  add/drop  period during which you may add new courses or drop courses without financial or academic penalty. During the summer academic session, the withdrawal period depends on the length of the course. Check  add/drop dates.

If you require summer academic break housing but break housing fees will create substantial financial hardship, please contact SFS  to determine whether financial assistance is available.
