Summer, Winter and Interim Housing Options

2023/24 Winter Intersession Housing Applicaiton is Open



During the Winter Break, RLSH traditional and suite style housing close. Residents of these halls who wish to stay on campus during the winter break must apply for Winter Intercession Housing. This includes residents of Alvarado, Coronado, DeVargas, Hokona, Laguna, and Santa Clara. 

Why do the traditional halls close during the winter break?

Servicing large buildings can be very expensive! Since so many students leave during the break, it is cost-effective and energy efficient to shut down the traditional halls during the break. That said, Resident Lobos who wish to apply for Winter Housing will be allowed to stay in their respective residence halls for a flat rate of $475.

Access Residence Dashboard


When/Where do I sign up?  Registration will open on Wednesday, October 18 at 1:00 P.M. and will be available on the Residence Dashboard.

Do I need winter housing?  Residents in the traditional/suite style halls must vacate the halls by Dec 16 until Jan 11. If you are a traditional/suite hall resident, and you need to live on campus, you need to sign up for winter housing.  

If I live in the apartments, do I need to fill this out?  No, and it won’t be available for apartment residents to complete. Only traditional/suite students will have access to complete the winter housing sign up. 

Where will I be living?  With our current capacity, it is highly unlikely that we will move all residents to the apartment style halls and anticipate having residents in traditional halls for the winter intersession. We will move as few people as possible, but we may consolidate to reduce the workload of our staff over the break. Consolidation/moves will be decided once the winter sign up closes. 

How much does it cost?  $475. There is no prorating or adjustment. If you are here for any portion of the winter housing period, it’s $475.  

When do I have to sign up by?  Friday, December 8, 2022, at 11:59PM. 





Summer Session 2023  

Taking a summer class? Need housing for the entire summer? You can live on campus! Our summer options are perfect for students taking courses over the summer, and even those who don't.  If you live with us for Spring 2023 and plan on living with us in Fall 2023 you can live with us without taking any classes this summer. We offer apartment-style living in the SRC Apartments with the same great amenities you are used to during the regular terms.

For those students already living with us and living with us again in the fall, you are eligible to live on campus for the summer as long as you are already enrolled for Fall 2023, even if you’re not taking classes this summer.
