Summer Housing Information


Summer housing will be available this summer at the Student Apartments in buildings 661 and 671. Priority for summer housing will be given to current CMC students, followed by Claremont Colleges-affiliated students. Summer housing is available to students who will be working on campus or in the area, assisting with research, or required to live on campus for a specific College purpose.


Because summer housing is limited, it will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. To apply, fill out this Summer Housing Application. The application is due on Monday, April 24.Approval to live on campus is at the discretion of CMC Residential Life and Dean of Students staff. You can request up to 3 apartment-mates. We encourage you to coordinate and communicate your apartment-mate requests with all students involved. You may only be listed on one set of preferences for apartment-mates. If you are listed in multiple groups for preferred roommates, some of those preferences will not be met. We will communicate your summer housing assignment – including the specific apartment and your apartment-mates – the week of May 1.

Dates & Apartment Information

Summer housing begins on Friday, May 19, at 1:00pm. You must check-in at Story House between 1:00 – 4:00pm to receive ID card access to your apartment and the metal key to your room. If you are arriving at a later date, please note that you can only check-in at Story House during business hours, Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 4:00pm. You will not be able to arrive and move in to an apartment outside of these days and times (i.e. Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays). Please keep these check-in dates in mind when you plan your arrival.

Summer housing ends on Friday, August 4, at 12:00pm. Current CMC students who need to stay on campus beyond August 4 need to indicate so on the application. Transition housing after August 4 is not available to CMC graduates and non-CMC students because they do not have a fall semester housing assignment. In most cases, transition housing to your fall housing assignment will be provided.

Each apartment comes with four single rooms, two private bathrooms, a living room, and a kitchen. The appliances provided include a refrigerator, a stove, an oven, and a dishwasher. There is no summer meal plan. There are no custodial services provided in the summer. Laundry is available with credit card payment. Parking at the student apartments is available for summer housing residents only. The studio apartments are not available for summer housing.

Costs, Billing, and Changes/Cancellations

The residence halls re-open for the fall semester on Sunday, August 27.

  • If you are a CMC student, all billing will be applied to your CMC student account. This includes CMC graduates.

Transition Housing
