Location/Assignment Criteria

  • Summer student Housing will be located in Gilbert Hall (apartment-style units with kitchens).
  • There are limited rooms available; once they are filled, summer student housing registration will be closed. Note: all of the units will be filled with 2 to 3 people depending on the unit size.
  • Assignments will be issued based on certain criteria with preference given to students who are staying the entire summer, have a Fall 2021 housing assignment, date the application is received, and reason for needing to be in on-campus housing. Generally we are able to accommodate all applicants.

Guest Policy

  • We will start the summer off with limiting guests to only those that live in Gilbert Hall. Therefore we will not be able to permit day or overnight visitors into your residence hall. These standards may be relaxed if it is determined to be safe to make a change.

Check-In Information

  • Summer housing check-in will be based upon when the summer housing units are cleaned and available. As units become available, students will be e-mailed with instructions. Students will be given 48-hours to complete their move once the e-mail is sent. Be sure to check your Pacific e-mail often. 

Check-Out Information

  • All summer housing residents will be checked-out of their assigned unit by August 8 by 5pm. Students with a 2021-22 housing assignment will receive an email with timing for transitioning to their fall room as the units are cleaned and available.
