The Residence Life Office (RLO) will house Davidson students over the summer in Chidsey Hall.
Students who need to stay from graduation to the beginning of summer are considered May move-overs and may do so for an extra charge. Residents who need to stay from the end of their summer college housing on July 30 until their opening responsibilities begin are considered August move-overs and may do so for an extra daily charge. Note on your summer housing application that you wish to be a May or August move-over.
Opening responsibilities refer to students whose specific role on campus in August is directly related to the opening of the college and is ultimately determined by the Dean of Students.
Opening responsibilities roles include:
Questions regarding summer housing can be emailed to Mary Ann Shessler at RLO@davidson.edu.
Questions regarding May late stay/August early arrival can be emailed to Kristen Harwood at RLO@davidson.edu.
All May move-overs will be temporarily housed in Richardson Hall during move-over week. May move-overs will have from noon on Sunday, May 20 through noon on Monday, May 21 to relocate out of their spring assignment into their move-over assignment in Richardson. May move-overs will be able to move to their summer assignment in Chidsey anytime between 3 p.m. on Thursday, May 24 through the evening of Monday, May 28.
Important: Richardson Hall will be without hot water for most of this week, as will most of campus, while Physical Plant conducts annual maintenance on the steam plant. Residents will have access to Irwin and Akers bathrooms this week to take hot showers.
All summer living options are billed at either a double room rate or a private room rate. RLO will attempt to meet requests for private rooms but there are a very limited number available and it will not be possible to fulfill most private room requests.
To request summer housing, submit an online Summer 2018 Housing Application to the Residence Life Office. The deadline for submitting applications is Friday, April 13, at 11:59 p.m. Applications received after this time will be considered based on space availability.
Please note, if your dates on campus straddle a portion of the first half and a portion of the second half of summer, you will need to apply as an entire summer resident.
All college and RLO Policies and Procedures, as noted on the RLO website, apply during summer housing and any student found in violation of policy may be asked to leave campus housing and the full housing fee will still be required to be paid.
Note: Residents are responsible for making full payments to Business Services by Wednesday, August 1, 2018; graduated seniors and non-Davidson students must make payment in full before summer move-in date.
