Summer Housing & Campus Services

Housing

Summer 2021 housing is limited to approved students.  Students participating in summer research or internships approved by the Furman Summer Fellows program, participating in athletics or working for the university as student-employees have housing priority for the summer. We do not guarantee summer housing to students who are participating in a non-Furman program or who apply late. More information about Summer Housing is available.

Summer Move In

Students should limit the number of individuals who accompany them for the move-in process to no more than two individuals, preferably family members.

Students and their family members will be expected to wear masks and follow physical distancing guidelines during the move-in process.

Family members are not permitted to stay overnight in campus housing.

Negative COVID Test Required Prior to the Start of May X and Summer

While the COVID vaccine is not currently required, students who have not submitted a copy of a completed vaccination card to the ESHC must obtain a negative nucleic amplification-based molecular diagnostic test for SARS-CoV-2 (RT-PCR or NAAT) in order to live in campus housing during May X. Unvaccinated students must be tested between May 6-10, and provide a negative test result to the Earle Student Health Center at furmanstudenthealth@prismahealth.org by May 10 in order to begin the May X program. Students who can present a vaccination card to the ESHC with at least one administered dose prior to May 10 are not required to provide a negative COVID test. SC DHEC offers free clinics near the campus, frequently providing a 24-hour turnaround for results.

Visit COVID Testing & Vaccinations for more information.

Face Coverings

Students must use face coverings in the common spaces and hallways of residence hall buildings and North Village apartments, including laundry rooms and lounges.
