Summer Housing Information and Application

 

Application

For complete housing information and to apply for housing, please visit: http://www.bc.edu/summerhousing and click on the STM Summer Housing option in the left navigation bar.

The Summer Session Housing Application will be available via the Agora Portal beginning April 8 and are due by June 21. Please note: You will need your BC username and password to access your account and apply for housing. New students will receive an e-mail with your username and password once you register for your summer course(s).  

Due to space restrictions, housing assignments will be granted based on the date we receive your application. Once housing is filled the online application will be closed regardless if the application deadline has not passed. All students applying for STM Housing must confirm that they have read and agree to the Summer Housing Residence Agreement during the application process.

Once your Summer Housing Application has been submitted, it will retain the status "Incomplete" until it has been processed by staff. Once it has been processed, you will receive a confirmation e-mail. Application processing will not begin until Tuesday, May 26. In order for the application to be approved, you must be registered for a course within the applicable session. Students not registered upon submission of a Summer Housing Application will not be approved. To prevent a delay in processing, please register for your courses prior to applying for housing.

If you require assistance submitting your application, please call 617-552-4727 until May 11 between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. and 617-552-5555 from May 15 until August 19 between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 a.m.  We are unavailable by phone May 12-May 14. If you have already applied for STM Housing and would like to update your application in any way, please email us at summer.housing@bc.edu by June 9.

Singles are not guaranteed for participants and are on a space available basis only.  Please make sure you have applied by the June 2015 deadline. Summer Housing cannot guarantee housing for applications received after the June 2015 deadline.  If you have any questions regarding summer housing, please e-mail stm@bc.edu or call Maura Colleary at (617) 552-8443.

RESIDENCE HALLS

Summer Institute students will have air-conditioned accommodations this summer in Vouté Hall. Units in Vouté Hall are apartment-style with two bedrooms and include a kitchen, a bathroom, and  a common room.

Dishes, pots, pans, glasses, silverware and other utensils are NOT provided.  If you wish to use these, you will need to supply them.

Single Accommodation includes a single bedroom in a shared apartment.

Double Accommodation includes a shared bedroom in a shared apartment.

Each bedroom is furnished with two single beds, two desks, two study chairs, and two dressers.

All buildings at Boston College, including the residence halls, are smoke free.

If you have a specific person with whom you want to share your room or apartment, please indicate so on the application form. You may request a only person who is taking the same sessions as you are. We are unable to "hold" a space for two weeks until a friend arrives. Conversely, should your roommate/apartment mate leave earlier than you, we will need to fill the bed space with a new student.

Unfortunately, Summer Housing is not able to house Summer Institute students before or after the session.  Please plan your travel accordingly. If you must arrive to the city before your session, you may apply to stay in the Summer Guest House. To register for Summer Guest House, visit www.bc.edu/guesthouse.  Due to the limited time available to prepare the halls, no one will be allowed to move into their assignment until the official move-in day.

The hours for the Summer Welcome Center are from 9:00 – 1:00 a.m. daily. Please do not arrive outside these hours, as there will be no staff available to check you in. If you have an international flight that arrives after 1:00 a.m. please e-mail summer.housing@bc.edu to make specific arrangements. After May 20, you may also call the Welcome Center directly at (617) 655-5555.

CHECK-OUT

Housing check-out time is Saturday at 12:00 p.m. at the Summer Welcome Center.  Keys must be returned upon check-out. Keys not returned will result in a charge assessed to the student’s account.

The Office of Residential Life will e-mail you a confirmation once your application has been accepted. You can review and make payments to your student account on the Agora Portal or submit your housing payment to the STM.  Payment for housing must be submitted prior to check-in.  Students who have not paid for housing and tuition charges will not be admitted to class until charges are paid.
