Summer Housing

(UPDATED 5/3/22) 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. Application opens May 6, 2022.

Criteria

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 2022 will not be eligible to live on campus for summer. Complete information about Summer Housing can be found in the Summer Housing Agreement.

Summer Room Types

For Summer 2022, shared occupancy room spaces, along with a limited number of single occupancy room spaces, will be available for assignment.

The following apartment types will be classified as single occupancy:

  • Studio 1 single
  • Single Apartment

The following apartment types will be classified as shared occupancy:

  • Studio 330
  • Studio 370
  • Townhouse apartment
  • Quad apartment
  • Triple 1-bedroom apartment

If you are assigned a shared occupancy space, you will be assigned into one of these room types listed. Students are not able to indicate room type preferences for summer. If you wish to live in a shared space, you may indicate a roommate preference on the Housing Application

IMPORTANT NOTE: You may indicate your housing type preference on the Housing Application, but please note that, depending on space, you may be assigned a shared occupancy type, even if you indicate you prefer a single occupancy room type. We thank you for your patience and understanding as not all room types can be used as single occupancy space.

 Roommate Information

If you select to live in a shared occupancy space, you may indicate a roommate preference on the Housing Application. Please note that this other person needs to have a completed housing application on file in order for our office to make an assignment for them. We recommend that you speak to this person and ensure they have submitted their housing application and have indicated your name in this section of the application.

Additionally, if you indicate a roommate preference, you may still be assigned to a space with other roommates. For example, if you only indicate 1 other person here, you and that other person may be assigned to a quad apartment, where you will share the space with 2 other individuals. Choosing a roommate does NOT automatically guarantee a room assignment where only 2 people can be assigned.

Please note that indicating a roommate on the application is optional. If you decide not to choose a specific roommate, then you will be assigned a roommate (if assigned to a shared occupancy space). Please note that even if you indicated above a preference for a single room space, you may still be assigned to a shared occupancy room with a roommate.

 

Summer Housing Charges

Summer Housing charges correspond with the session that the student chooses, as well as the room type the student is assigned to (see next section).

All students will be billed the session rate outlined below based on the number of weeks that corresponds with the chosen summer session. If you need to extend your time frame during the summer, please email our office and we will verify if we are able to do so.

Other Logistical Information

If you are NOT currently living on campus, you will receive more information about your move in logistics on your approved move-in date. Please expect to receive more information in mid-May.

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 mid-May. Students currently on campus are automatically approved for a late-stay request until Friday, June 17, 2022 when summer occupancy begins. You will not need to vacate your space between June 11 (when the residence halls close) until June 17.

If you will be a Murphy resident for Fall 2022, we will try and assign you to your room space for the fall quarter, however we are not able to guarantee this. You may need to move again at the end of the summer period.
