Summer 2022 Housing

The Residence Life Office (RLO) offers summer housing to Davidson students and non-Davidson students doing research for Davidson College faculty. For summer 2022, residents will be housed in Chidsey Hall in double rooms or single rooms.

Summer housing contracts are offered for the full, 10-week summer (Sunday, May 22 - Saturday, July 30), or a 5-week first half of summer (Sunday, May 22 - Saturday, June 25), or a 5-week second half of summer (Sunday, June 26 - Saturday, July 30). Space is limited, and priority is given to full summer applicants. 

Summer housing rates are based on room type (double or single rooms) and duration (see Summer Housing 2022 rates below). Students may stay on-campus between Closing and the start of summer (see May Move-Over below) and/or between the end of summer and Opening (see August Move-Over below) for an additional charge. 

Applications for Summer Housing, May Move-Over, and August Move-Over will be available March 2022.

All college and RLO Policies and Procedures for Residents apply during summer housing, unless otherwise specified by RLO professionals. Any student found in violation of policy may be removed from summer housing without refund.

Summer Housing 2022 Rates

Summer housing rates are based on room type and duration.  Students indicate a room type preference (either double room or single room) on the application. RLO will attempt to meet requests for single rooms but numbers are limited. See the sections on May Move-Over and August Move-Overs for their respective rates. Bills for summer housing are put on student accounts.

Full Summer:  Sunday, May 22 - Saturday, July 30

  • $1,350 (double room) or $1,900 (single room)

First Half Summer:  Sunday, May 22 - Saturday, June 25

  • $800 (double room) or $1100 (single room)

Second Half Summer:  Sunday, June 26 - Saturday, July 30

  • $800 (double room) or $1100 (single room)

May Move-Over

Students staying in the residence halls from Closing to the beginning of summer are considered May Move-Overs. May Move-Overs are charged a flat rate of $225 for housing from Closing (Sunday, May 15 for non-graduating students or Monday, May 16 for graduating students) until Sunday, May 22.

All May move-overs will be housed in one building during move-over week before moving into Chidsey on May 22. May move-overs will have from noon on Sunday, May 15 through noon on Monday, May 16 to relocate out of their spring assignment into this temporary move-over assignment.

August Move-Over

Students staying in the residence halls from the end of summer housing (July 30) until Opening (August 20) AND who have an on-campus assignment for fall 2022 are considered August Move-Overs. August Move-Overs are initially housed in their summer assignment and must move into their fall assignment on a specified date the first week in August.

August Move-Overs are charged a $35 per night rate from July 31 until August 20 (placed on the student account.)

Students who have opening responsibilities (that is, roles on campus directly related to the opening of the college as determined by the Dean of Students) have the nightly rate waived beginning the date their opening responsibilities would begin. Opening responsibility roles include: in-season athletes, pre-orientation programs, and leadership groups who have responsibilities during orientation.

Students must apply to be an August Move-Over in the application so RLO can properly assign them in summer housing to allow for cleaning and repairs before early arrivals move in in August. Students who do not live in summer housing for the entire summer or the second half of the summer are not eligible to be an August Move-Over.

Note: Graduated seniors and non-Davidson students must make full payment before summer move-in date.
