Summer Housing

During the summer, Seattle University offers safe, convenient and affordable housing in Seattle for Seattle U students. Our residence halls are located in some of the most vibrant neighborhoods of the city and offer easy access to all that Seattle has to offer. RAs and desk staff are available during the summer.

All summer housing will be in the Murphy Apartment Complex.  


Students are able to live in summer housing as long as they are an enrolled student at Seattle University (not necessarily taking summer classes). Students graduating in Spring 2021 will not be eligible to live on campus for summer.

Regardless of the room type assigned to you, the price per term will be the same for all students living on campus for summer.

If you wish to live with a particular roommate, please reach out to the Housing office ***after*** you are assigned a space so we can work to conduct a room change for you.

Note: You may be assigned a bedroom within a quad apartment with other students. 

Moving to Your Summer Assignment

If you are currently living on campus, you will receive more information about moving to your summer room assignment when you are assigned a space during the week of May 10. Students currently on campus will be approved for a late-stay request until June 18, 2021 when summer occupancy begins.

You will not need to vacate your space between June 12 (when the residence hall close) until June 18.

If you are currently a resident in Murphy, our office will try to keep you in your same room assignment, however please note you may need to move due to various facilities projects scheduled in the Day and Grande buildings this summer.
