Welcome Prospective Summer 2014 Residents!

Thank you for your interest in summer housing at Northwestern University. The number of available rooms for the summer of 2014 will be very limited. For this reason, assignment priority will be given only to Northwestern students registered in a Summer Session class and who have a Net ID. Unfortunately, housing accommodations cannot be made for individuals who will be unaffiliated with Northwestern University during the summer.

Please review the following information carefully before accessing and submitting your summer housing application.

Access the summer housing application.


All summer housing assignments will be made to single, double, or triple occupancy rooms in 630 Emerson. 630 Emerson is located on the south end of campus and is a short walk from the Foster Street El stop, Lake Michigan, and downtown Evanston. Residents of the same sex share a common restroom with shower and toilet facilities. Restroom facilities will be maintained by building staff; however, residents are responsible for the cleanliness of their individual sleeping rooms.

Rooms are air-conditioned, and include the following furnishings: a desk with bookshelf, a desk chair, a floor lamp, a set of dresser drawers, and a wardrobe unit with space to hang clothing. It also includes a bed frame with a mattress. Mattresses measure 80 inches long, also known as twin extra-long. A fitted sheet for a regular twin bed will not fit the mattress. The average room is 9' wide by 12' deep. Linens, pillows, blankets, and towels are not provided. Residents must provide their own bed linens and towels. Full laundry facilities are located within each complex and may be operated with 25-cent coins (quarters), washers cost $1.00 per load and dryers cost $1.00 per load.

Summer residents will have access to the Internet; however there will be no access to a telephone within their room. Smoking is prohibited within all areas of the Residence Halls, including individual sleeping rooms.
