Summer 2021 Housing 


Students who complete the full application by the deadline will be eligible for summer housing as long as they meet one of the following criteria:

  • They are a current spring resident or fall resident registered for summer or fall classes. Classes are not required to be in person.
  • They are a student without housing affiliation enrolled in summer classes that require an in-person presence.
  • They are a spring semester graduate in need of summer housing.

Students who do not meet one of the above criteria will not be eligible for summer housing. Graduate and Family members who signed up for 2021-2022 12-month housing agreements should not apply to this application since summer is already included in their new agreement. Newly admitted graduate students should not apply to the Summer Housing application as you will need to complete the New Student Housing application.

How to Apply

The Summer Housing Application will go live on the Housing Portal on April 9. The deadline for the application will be May 2 at 11:59 PM.  All housing applications for Summer Sessions 1 and 2 must be submitted by the deadline for consideration. Applicants who did not submit a completed application by the deadline will not be given a summer housing assignment.

Arrival Information

Precautionary Quarantine

As of April 10, NYS does not mandate a precautionary quarantine upon arrival for anyone. This could change prior to your arrival, so we recommend you review the   New York State guidance  as you get closer to your arrival date for the most current information. If one becomes required, the precautionary quarantine has to take place prior to your check-in at an off-campus location. Proof of completed quarantine is required upon check-in.

Arrival Preparedness

Students arriving for summer housing from off-campus are required to complete SUNY expectations for checking in:

  • Complete the daily Campus Clear health screening app for any symptoms for 14 days prior to arriving at Stony Brook.
  • Self-quarantine for 7 days prior to arrival.
  • Obtain a negative COVID PCR test taken within 7 days prior to coming to Stony Brook.
  • Provide a printed copy or show an electronic copy of the negative COVID PCR test result at check-in to receive the room key.

Having a COVID vaccine does not exempt anyone from arrival expectations.

Room assignment/check-in confirmation will contain the most up-to-date information that students must comply with. Additional policies and procedures may be implemented throughout the housing agreement period in response to COVID-1

Summer Assignments & Move In

  • Students will select which term session they need summer housing for:
    • Summer Session 1 (Classes start May 24)
      • Spring on campus residents will be given a move date between May 19 - May 24
      • Spring off campus residents will move in on May 23 or May 24
    • Summer Session 2 Extended (Class start June 21)
      • June 18 or June 21
    • Summer Session 2 (Classes start July 5)
      • July 2 or 5
  • Summer housing assignments and additional check-in instructions will be emailed to you approximately one week prior to your scheduled arrival.
  • We cannot guarantee a specific room assignment. All assignments will be made with fall housing locations in mind.
  • For West Apartments: summer room change requests will be reviewed for approval based on space availability. Requests can be made through the Schomburg West Area Office during the following date ranges:
    • June 1 - June 25 by noon
    • July 8 - July 23 by noon


Summer Move Out and Financial Liability 

Students in summer housing who check out before their originally requested summer check-out date will be prorated the daily housing rate through their actual check out date (removal of items from the room and surrender of keys to the Area Office).  Once a student checks out of summer housing, that decision is final and the student cannot return to a space in summer housing.

  • Residents who move out by July 3 at Noon at the end of Summer Session 1 will be credited the unused days of the summer housing bill.
  • Residents who move out by July 17 at Noon at the end of Summer Session 1 Extended will be credited the unused days of the summer housing bill. Anyone still in room at this deadline will be financially liable for the remainder of summer.
  • Any resident without a Fall 2021 housing assignment must check out by August, 13, 2021. On that date, you will have to complete a full check-out by 4:00pm.
  • Any resident with a Fall 2021 housing assignment staying beyond July 17 at noon will be liable through August 21, 2021. Residents will move to their fall assignment location on August 10 and 11 and must check out from their summer space by August 11 at 4pm.
