During Summer Session 2017, students will be housed in Campus North Residential Commons, a modern, air-conditioned facility beloved by residents for its great amenities and sunny social spaces. All single and double rooms share a common floor bathroom; each floor is accessible by elevator. All rooms are fully furnished with an extra-long twin bed, desk and chair, dresser, and a set of bookshelves per resident, and a telephone with free local calls. Amenities include: weekly linen exchange, multiple lounges, community kitchen, two courtyards, computer study rooms, music practice rooms, a 15th floor reading room, laundry facilities, wireless internet service, vending and ice machines, and 24-hour front desk service.

All current University of Chicago students who wish to live on campus during Summer Session 2017 must submit a housing application to the Summer Session Office between November 17, 2016 and May 1, 2017. To request housing, please complete the housing application and send in an email to Summer Language Institute Students should request housing through the Summer Language Institute.

Rooms will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis; you are encouraged to apply for housing as early as possible, as space is limited.


Students living in the Campus North Residential Commons during the summer may choose to eat on the meal plan in Frank and Laura Baker Dining Commons, located next to the dorm and offering three meals a day, seven days a week. Baker Dining features multiple stations, offering options such as a fresh fruit and salad bar, grill, pasta, pizza, and hot entrees, as well as a variety of flavors of freshly scooped ice cream. Vegetarian and vegan selections are available. Students with special dietary needs (such as allergies or kosher/halal) should be sure to list these needs in the space provided on their housing application. Commuter students may eat at the Dining Commons on a cash basis; meal plans are not available if you do not live in the dorm.

A small community kitchen in the dormitory will be available to College students who choose to provide their own meals. It includes a refrigerator, stove, microwave, and sink. If you wish use it, you will need to bring your own cooking utensils, pots and pans, silverware, and other items. All items should be stored in your room when not in use. You might also want to invest in a small, “dorm room” refrigerator to keep in your room. See Our Campus: History, Attractions, and Eats for information on campus coffee shops and cafes.

Move-in and Check-out

Students may move in to the dorm the day before their classes start, beginning on Sunday, June 18. All students must check out of the dorm by 9 am on the Saturday after their last class (i.e., if your last class session meets on Thursday, July 6, you must check out no later than 9 am on Saturday, July 8). You may be assessed for damages or cleaning costs after check-out; if applicable such charges will be added to your tuition and housing bill and you will not be able to request your transcript until the bill is paid.
