        This application should be submitted if you are a student employee or intern and will need housing beyond the end of summer session 2 – even if you are taking summer classes! NOTE: There are NO tuition waivers associated with being a summer student employee. Students must contact Enrollment Services for information about financial aid opportunities.

 

      • Affiliates
        Applicants who do NOT have a valid URI Student ID# must contact the summer housing office directly to inquire about availability.

Deadlines:

Students needing accommodations during Senior Week and/or Summer Session 1 must submit their application by April 28, 2017. Housing cannot be guaranteed for Senior Week participants, Summer Session 1 students, or Student Employees if applications are received after this date. Students arriving for Summer Session 2 must submit their application by June 9th.

Deposit:

A housing deposit is not required for Summer Housing.

Roommate Requests:

Due to the accelerate summer schedule room/suite mate requests cannot be accepted.

Room Assignments:

Senior Week/Interim Housing students, with the exception of Eddy Hall and 8FC residents, stay in their academic year rooms. Eddy residents transfer to Fayerweather Hall for senior week and are assigned rooms on a space available basis. These temporary room assignments cannot be made in advance. Summer Session 1 room assignments are available through your MY HOUSING account by May 5th. Affiliates will have their room assignments emailed to them by May 15th. Rooms are assigned on a first come first serve basis as space is available. Summer Session 2 room assignments will be posted on your MY HOUSING page by June 16th.

Room assignments are made on a first come first serve basis, and students will be billed at the established rate of the accommodations that they move into as opposed to the room type they requested on their application.

It is the Department of Housing and Residential Life’s (HRL’s) prerogative to assign residents to their respective buildings and rooms to achieve the highest and best use of available space. Summer Housing staff may consolidate room assignments after the end of Summer Session 2 for building maintenance and preparation purposes.

Duration of Occupancy:

STUDENTS: Student Housing accommodations are available to support students’ academic endeavors while they are attending summer classes or are engaged in summer internships. Anyone staying in Summer Housing for Summer Sessions 1 & 2 who submitted their Summer Housing Application before April 28th will not have to move out between sessions. These students stay in the same room for the duration of their stay. Students who submit their application to stay for Summer Session 2 after April 28th may have to change rooms after Summer Session 1. Summer School students who are not involved in internship experiences or employed by URI during the month of August must leave their on-campus summer housing assignment upon completion of Summer Session 2. All remaining interns and employees must vacate their summer room assignment by the Transfer Days. SEE THE SUMMER HOUSING CALENDAR BELOW FOR FURTHER DETAILS. Students who are approved to remain in Summer Housing through Transfer Day and who live in the residence halls during the academic year will be able to move directly into their academic year room assignment at this time.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Students who will not be living in the residence halls for the 2017 fall semester must make alternative housing arrangements between transfer day and the start of the school year if they need to work on campus during these weeks. These students should consider finding alternative housing for the summer which can accommodate them through their fall housing move in date. Questions pertaining to room availability in fraternities and sororities during the summer should be directed to Fraternity Manager’s Association at 401-874-2557. The Commuter Housing Office can also assist with finding accommodations in the area. They can be reached at 401-874-2828.

It’s a privilege to live here:

Due to the popularity of the area beaches, housing in South County during the summer months is in short supply and very expensive. So it’s truly a privilege to be able to live on the Kingston Campus, in such close proximity to the ocean, during this very desirable season. Each Summer Housing resident must maintain their status as a student, student employee or other affiliation at/with the University of Rhode Island to meet eligibility criteria. Violations of community standard or inappropriate behavior in and around any residence may result in the loss of one’s ability to live on campus as well as the loss of his/her employment (if applicable). When submitting a Summer Housing Application the applicant deems that all information is true and that they agree to the terms and conditions as set forth in the URI Student Handbook and the Summer Housing Agreement.

Any extenuating circumstances requiring you to arrive outside of the established check-in time should be communicated to the Summer Housing Office staff at 401-874-2376 so that arrangements can be made to assist you. Please make other arrangements for the night if you cannot arrive before 11 PM.

Billing & Payment information:

Students are billed for the session(s) they have indicated on their application form. Summer Housing fees are submitted to Enrollment Services and are included on the Summer School bill (see Enrollment Service’s website for more information on their billing cycles, payment due dates, etc). Summer Housing bills must be paid in Enrollment Services, which is located on the 2nd floor of Green Hall. Enrollment Services office hours are 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM Monday through Friday. Residents are billed for the entire Summer Session for which they have applied at the rates stipulated above.

IN ADDITION, room assignments are made on a first come first serve basis, and students will be billed at the established rate of the accommodations that they move into as opposed to the room type they requested on their application.

Some students have their housing paid through grants and/or the department for which they are employed. The Summer Housing Office bills these departments directly. Students who have this arrangement with their respective employers must have their names submitted on a list sent to the Summer Housing Office, by their employer, prior to April 30.

Cancellations:

Students who have completed a Summer Housing Application and now need to cancel must complete the online Summer Housing Cancellation request. Cancellations received after May 15th will result in students being charged a $50 cancellation fee. Full refunds are not allowed after the end of the first week of each session.

To access this form:

  • Log into your e-Campus account
  • Select the “URI Student Services” link.
  • Select the “My Housing” link.
  • Click on the “Apply Online or Cancel Online” button
  • Select and complete the Summer Housing Cancellation Form

Students who move out of their Summer Housing room assignment early, without completing a cancellation form, will be billed for the entire session for which they applied.

Affiliates are not able to access this online cancellation process. Anyone who has submitted an Affiliate Application who needs to cancel should email or call the Summer Housing Office directly to inform them of the need to cancel.

Office Hours and Staff Availability:

The Summer Housing Office is staffed part-time starting spring break, and on a full-time basis at the start of Summer Housing. We close for the season after Transfer Day. Emails are checked periodically and phone calls are directed to the respective Assistant Director during the off-season.

Residence Hall office hours are posted in the lobby of each summer housing building. There is a Resident Assistant on-call from 8 PM to 7 AM weekdays and after 4 PM on weekends. The On-Call contact number is posted in all buildings used for summer housing.

Communication and Technology:

Wired and wireless internet services, as well as cable TV connections, are included in the room fee. The University no longer offers a telephone system to residents’ rooms. Buildings housing undergraduates usually have a Facebook page established and residents are expected to be registered users. Non-Facebook users must have a valid email address registered with the summer housing staff. Both Facebook and email accounts must be checked on a regular basis so that we can alert you to routine maintenance, power outages and construction information that may affect you during your stay.

What to bring:

FOR THE ROOM:
Sheets, blanket & bedspread, pillow, alarm clock, hangers, small tool kit, flashlight, desk lamp (no halogen lamps allowed), surge suppressor, first aid kit.

FOR YOUR CLOTHING:
Laundry supplies, laundry basket or bag, sewing kit, flat iron, drying rack

FOR THE BATHROOM:
Bucket for shower supplies, flip flops, shampoo, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, towels, hair dryer.

EXTRAS:
Small TV. Any other appliances must be under 1,000 watts.
Laundry facilities are available in all Summer Housing Residence Halls.

Check Out:

Checking out of a room requires that an inspection be conducted by an RA in the presence of the room’s occupant. It is expected that the room is left in the same or better condition than it was upon moving in. After the room has been inspected by the hall staff, the RA will check you out electronically. Anything shy of this is considered an illegal check-out. Students who check out illegally are billed $100 for an illegal check out, AND $75 for a lock change.

Summer Housing is not provided for the entire summer and runs concurrent with the Summer School schedule. Summer living accommodations are not available during the 2 weeks prior to school opening for the fall semester unless you are moving from your summer room assignment to your academic year assignment within the residence hall system (this does not include the sororities/fraternities, IEP House, or Women’s Center). If you are transferring to your academic year room assignment on Transfer Day, you must inform the Summer Housing RA 2 weeks prior to this date of your intention to do so. Check Out times and procedures will be posted in the hall office.

Have a great Summer!
Please inform any staff member if we can be of assistance to you during your stay.
