Application Process:

Students residing on campus for any reason (summer school, work, research, working for the university, etc.) between the end of the 2015 Spring semester and Saturday, August 15, must submit a May X / Summer Housing Application form to the Housing & Residence Life Office by 5 p.m., Monday, April 20. 

Do I have to be a Furman student to live on campus?:

Only Furman students are allowed to live on campus. Prefreshmen are allowed.

Where will summer students be housed?:

All students will be housed in North Village buildings A, B, C, D, E and/or F.  Housing & Residence Life anticipates being able to accommodate all students who request summer housing; however, in the event capacity is reached, housing will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. The staff reserves the right (based on space limitations) to deny summer housing to students who are not officially involved in some way with the University.

Housing & Residence Life must assign students to both private bedroom apartments and shared bedroom apartments. 


You must pay your summer housing fees by going to the Student Business Center during the first week in campus housing.  You are also required to submit the Summer Payment Form​​.  The Student Business Center is located in the administration building.  Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

Policies and Procedures:

All policies and procedures outlined in The Helmsman apply to individuals living in campus housing during the summer.

Do students with a 2015-16 assignment at The Vinings need to register
for May X and/or summer housing?

Only students who receive a 2015-16 Vinings assignment through the lottery and want to move directly to The Vinings from North Village should submit a May X and/or summer application. Students who follow this process will be able to remain as "late stays" in North Village until moving to The Vinings no later than Monday, May 18, 2015.

2015-16 Vinings students who will move to The Vinings later in the summer do not need to complete the May X/Summer Application, but will work through the Vinings Management Office to schedule a check in date. These students should check out of campus housing with the close of North Village on Sunday, May 10.

What is the process for residents on campus for BOTH May X and summer housing?
  • Students who live in North Village A, B, C, D, E or F for Spring 2015: Students will remain in their spring assignment for both May X and summer with no break in housing.
  • Students who live in Lakeside for Spring 2015: Students will be re-assigned to another location on campus for both May X and summer with no break in housing. These students will be required to relocate on These students will be required to relocate on Sunday, May 10, 2015 from 9AM to 1PM in order to begin summer renovations to Lakeside at the close of the spring semester. 
  • Students who live in the South Housing Residence Halls or North Village G, H, I, J, or K for Spring 2015: Students  will remain in their spring assignment until May 22-24 (see "Transition from May X to Summer Assignment" guidelines below).

Transition from May X to Summer Assignment:

Friday, May 22 through Sunday, May 24

All May X residents staying for the summer session must move to their summer assignment between May 22-24.  

May X residents with no summer assignment will remain in May X housing until closing on Thursday, June 4, 2015 at noon.

Transition from Summer to Fall Assignment:
2015 TDB

Friday, August 1  through Sunday, August 4 @ 5:00 p.m.

All summer residents (except Furman students who are not living in campus housing fall semester) must move to their fall assignment over this weekend. All students who move to their fall assignment are expected to pay the summer housing rates for August, even if they opt not to stay on campus during that time. There will be no additional fee for the week of  August 17-23.  

Non-Furman residents are expected to check out on Saturday, August 2, 2014.

Furman students not living in campus housing during the fall semester must check out by noon on Saturday, August 15. 

Requesting an Assignment and/or Roommate

Summer students can request ONE roommate within the same apartment. Many variables must be considered in the assignment process and within a restricted time frame. In order to accomplish this task and meet the assignments deadline, roommate requests must be limited to one per apartment.

Specific apartment assignment requests will be considered but are not guaranteed. Attempts are made to minimize moves for students (i.e. If a student will be in campus housing the entire summer and has a fall assignment in a building used for summer housing, the Housing and Residence Life Office will attempt to assign him/her to their fall assignment for summer if at all possible.)

Students who submit the May X/Summer housing application beyond the deadline forfeit the opportunity to make roommate and assignment requests.
Sunday, April 5, 2015 for May X and Monday, April 20, 2015 for Summer
