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. 

As announced by the Provost on April 23, 2020 all summer classes will be offered remotely. Due to this development, a limited amount of summer housing will be exclusively available to students who have no other summer housing option.  Students are strongly encouraged to participate in their classes from an off-campus location, if at all possible.

The Summer Application and Contract will be available on the Housing Portal on Monday, May 11th.


All summer housing assignments will be located in the University’s graduate housing communities. Residents will be responsible for the maintaining the cleanliness of their individual sleeping rooms, bathrooms, and kitchens within their units. 

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. 

* Mattresses are queen sized.  All individual rooms have tile floor with carpeting in the hallway.  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.
All summer accommodations come with WiFi internet; however, there is no access to a (landline) telephone within the units. Smoking is strictly prohibited within all areas of the building, including individual sleeping rooms.


  • Summer housing begins at 2pm on June 23 and ends at 12pm on August 29.
  • Summer residents may check-in and pick up keys as early as 2pm on June 23 at your building’s front desk.
  • Checkouts occur every Saturday at 12:00pm. Residents who do not checkout by this deadline will be charged an extra day.
