Summer 2023 Housing 

Application Available: April 3, 10:00am
Summer Session 1 Arrival Priority Application Deadline: May 1, 9:59pm
Summer Session 2 Arrival Priority Application Deadline: June 26, 9:59pm
Final application deadline: July 11, 5pm



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 2023-2024 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. To apply for summer housing and be assigned a space, a student must have no current financial holds on their student account. 

Summer Global Studies and Summer Oceanography participants do not need to complete a housing application. EOP/AIM Pre-Freshman Summer Academy participants also do not need to submit a summer housing application. EOP pre-freshmen summer academy housing is arranged through the EOP office.


How to Apply

The Summer Housing Application will go live on the Housing Portal on April 3. The priority deadline for a session 1 arrival is May 1, 9:59 pm, and for session 2, arrival is June 26, 9:59 pm. After the priority deadline, we will house students on a space-available basis but cannot guarantee housing or the desired arrival date. Applicants who do not submit a completed application by the final deadline of July 11 at 5 pm will not be given a summer housing assignment.

Locations and Rates

Summer housing is located in West Apartments and Southampton Campus. Only students with an academic reason to be at Stony Brook Southampton will be housed at that location.

Please note that these communities are open all year round, and your apartment may have already been occupied. Our priority is to ensure your bedroom space is ready for your arrival upon move-in. Please bear with us as our staff may need to return to apartments to address any room readiness issues in common areas. For any urgent matters upon arrival, contact your office or building staff, who will do their best to address your concerns.  

West Apartments 

  • Single room $61.50 per night | $6,211.50 full summer term*
  • Double room $56 per night | $5,656 full summer term*

Stony Brook Southampton Campus (Only for students required to be at Southampton for their academic program)

  • Single room: $64 per night | $6,464 full summer term*
  • Double room: $56 per night | $5,656 full summer term*

*Full Summer Term Rates are based on the maximum days any individual could stay 5/17-8/26 if you have spring and fall housing.

Applicants will be asked to give a preference for a single or double room. Double rooms are extremely limited and not guaranteed. Applicants will be placed in a single room if a double room is not available.


Students housed for summer housing will be billed at the published summer rate for the space they are assigned to from their date of arrival and for the remaining duration of summer housing. Students without fall reservation billing will end on August 18. Students with a fall reservation billing will end on August 26. Bills will be posted to one's student accounts in mid-May.

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 4 at Noon at the end of Summer Session 1 will be credited the unused days of the summer housing bill.
  • Any resident without a Fall 2023 housing assignment must check out by August 18. On that date, you will have to complete a full check-out by 4:00 pm. If you choose to check out earlier than August 18, you will receive a credit for the unused remaining days of your summer housing agreement.
  • Any residents with a Fall 2023 who move out by July 19 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 the summer.
  • Any resident with a Fall 2023 housing assignment staying beyond July 19 at noon will be liable through August 26.
    • Residents with fall assignments in a location besides West Apartments will pick up the key to their fall assignment on Sunday, August 13, between 10 am-1:00 pm and complete a check-out of West Apartments by August 14 by 4 pm.
    • Residents with fall West Apartments assignments that are different than their summer assignments will move sometime between August 13 and August 16 once the area office confirms your fall assignment is ready.
