Summer Housing

Summer 2015 Housing Overview

RLO will house Davidson students over the summer in New Hall.

  • Due to space availability, students doing research, internships, taking classes and/or working for Davidson College for the entire summer (May 26 - August 1) will be given priority.
  • Students here for either the first half (May 26 - June 26) or second half (June 29 - August 1) will be given secondary priority
  • If space is still available after those assignments are made, RLO will work to accommodate shorter or off-cycle stays.

Students who need to stay from graduation to the beginning of summer (May move overs) may do so for an extra charge. Students who need to stay from the end of summer until they have "opening responsibilities" (August move overs) may do so for an extra charge. "Opening responsibilities" include students whose role is related to the opening of the College and ultimately determined by the Dean of Students. It includes in-season athletes, pre-orientation programs, leadership groups who have responsibilities during orientation, etc.
