Summer Housing is a limited on-campus housing option available to students enrolled for the summer term, or participating in one of the below programs.  During the summer months, the majority of residential facilities are occupied and operated through Dining and Event Services. Students participating in the programs listed below are eligible to live on campus during the summer.

Summer Sublet Connection

We recognize that there is a larger interest in Summer Housing than can be met on campus. To support students locate other housing options for the summer, Residence Life runs the Summer Sublet Connection beginning after Spring Break. Please check your Puget Sound email for more information.

Gap Housing

Some students would like to stay on campus in May after the Residence closure date (May 4 for undergraduate students, May 6 for graduating students). This is referred to as Gap Housing and will be available from May 4 - May 31, 2024.   Residence Life can accommodate you during this time period for a fee; $300 for the time period May 4 - May 31 or $150 for the first week only (May 4 - May 11).  In most cases, if you sign up for the first week only of Gap Housing, you can remain in your Spring housing location - exceptions are in Summer Housing locations. After May 11, Gap Housing will be in Todd/Phibbs Hall and will have two people assigned to each room. Please feel free to apply for Gap Housing if you are interested in this option.
