Summer Housing

Earlham College offers its enrolled students the opportunity to live on-campus during the summer months while they participate in May Term courses, pursue research with our faculty or work as summer college employees. Summer housing is only available for students who are enrolled in the college — students who have graduated or who have yet to begin their studies on-campus are not able to live on-campus during the summer. Any enrolled student interested in applying for summer housing should complete the Summer Housing Application by Friday, April 25, 2014, or one week before their requested check in date.


General Students $105.00/week
Earlham College-employed students and
Earlham College research students 
One-Time Program Fee  $15.00 

Summer Location and Placement Process

Summer Housing will be located in Olvey-Andis Hall for the 2014 Summer Term. Students are placed in their summer housing room on a first-come, first-served basis and according to their preferences within their submitted housing application. On the application, students are able to indicate their preferences for room type and roommates.

Transitioning To and From Summer Housing

The Office of Residence Life coordinates with students who are moving directly into their summer housing after the conclusion of the spring semester to ensure a smooth transition. Students will be able to stay in their current spring semester room after the end of the semester as Earlham College staff prepare their summer housing room for occupancy. At the end of the summer housing term, students will have the option to extend their summer housing contract and transition to their fall on-campus room, if they are living on-campus. The Office of Residence Life will work with students to have a seamless transition.

Summer Programming

The Office of Residence Life coordinates events and programs designed to build and sustain community throughout the summer for students living on-campus. On-campus living at Earlham College values building relationships between its residents as a continuing part of each student’s education. As part of this, each student living on-campus pays a one-time $15.00 program fee that sustains these activities and events. Resident Assistants work with summer residents to plan these events and are always looking for ideas from the greater community.
