Summer Housing

Thank you for your interest in summer housing at Northwestern University. Please review the following information carefully before accessing and submitting your summer housing contract. Please note that all correspondence will be sent to your Northwestern email account. The Summer Contract will be available on the Housing Portal on Wednesday, May 1 until Friday, May 24. All students will be notified by Friday, May 31 of their summer housing assignment. Residents must be enrolled in courses at Northwestern during the summer quarter.


Summer housing will be available in a building with singles and doubles; however, please note that singles are first made available to students with approved accommodations for a single room. Residents will be responsible for maintaining the cleanliness of their individual sleeping rooms. Sleeping rooms are air-conditioned and include the following furnishings: a bed frame and mattress, a set of dresser drawers, and a closet with space to hang clothing. Linens, pillows, blankets, and towels are not provided. Residents must provide their own bed linens and towels. Full laundry facilities are located within the building. Washers and dryer are available at no cost to the resident.
