2018 Summer Housing


Summer housing may be extended to students during the summer on a space-available basis. Only those students who fit the criteria below are eligible. The priority for housing students for the summer is in the following order:

  1. Full time (32-40 hours per week) paid student employees of campus offices or departments. 
  2. Full time (32-40 hours per week) researchers working for a faculty member on the faculty member’s project that requires one to be at “K” for the purpose of access to specific facilities or daily access to faculty members.
  3. Full time (32-40 hours per week) local (Kalamazoo metropolitan area only) interns.  Internships must be registered with the Center for Career and Professional Development. 

Students may live on campus during the dates of employment/internship only.

Summer housing will be available from June 16 - August 11, 2018 (location TBD).  The summer residence hall closes on Saturday, August 11, 2018 at noon.  Students continuing to work full-time for the College after that date and who have a Fall on campus assignment will be permitted to move to their fall space and continue living on campus after August 11. All other students cannot be accommodated after that date and time and must plan accordingly.

Sign-Up Process

  1. All students choosing to live on campus during the summer will be required to pay a housing fee which includes $100 refundable security deposit and $90 per week room rental fee. A representative from the Student Accounts Office will be present at the housing sign-up process to take security deposits and to answer questions.
  2. Sign-up for summer housing will take place in the Student Development Large Conference Room (Hicks) on Thursday of 10th week, Spring quarter (June 7, 2018) from 11:00 am - 12:00 pm. 
  3. Students must complete the Summer Housing Payment Form online before the summer housing process. All payment details are on this form.
  4. Students must bring written verification of employment, a completed Summer Housing Contract, $100 security deposit payment in cash or a check made out to Kalamazoo College, and have submitted the Summer Housing Payment Form online.
  5. Most housing in Hoben will be double occupancy. Very few single rooms will be available and will be assigned on a first come, first served basis. Students may sign up with a specific roommate or they will be assigned a roommate.
  6. At the time of sign-up, students will indicate a specific period of consecutive weeks for summer residence and will pay for that block according to the College’s billing arrangements. A student may spend some period of time within the block away from the room (a vacation, for example) but must pay for the entire block. If students check out prior to the end of a full week, they will still be charged for the full week. Accounts cannot be pro-rated by the day.
  7. Students living in the summer residence hall may cook in the Hoben community kitchen. Lunches are occasionally available at the Richardson Room during the summer, and students can pay cash if they wish to eat at that location when it is open.
  8. Students should not skip class to sign up for summer housing. Students who are in class during the summer housing process should stop by Student Development after class to sign up.
  9. Questions about summer housing sign up may be directed to Stephen Sanney, Director of Residential Life, 337-7520 or
  10. Questions about billing arrangements can be directed to Patrick Farmer, Student Accounts Coordinator, 337-7226 or
