Summer Sessions

If you need to catch up on a needed course, spread classes out for an easier load in the fall, or want get a jump on your first semester as a freshman, we've got a place for you.

Mason provides summer students with residence hall accommodations, although not every building will be available. But don't worry; you'll have a roof over your head, and you might have a roommate.

Getting Started

You can apply in April, with the priority deadline in early May. Applications take a few business days to process, so it's best to apply as soon as possible.

Applications are handled on a first-come, first-served, space-available basis. We take preferences into account when making assignments, but space in specific room types might not be available during the summer.

You'll get an email with your summer assignment and move-in instructions a few days before the session check-in date.

  • If you've lived on campus or applied to housing before, go to eLiving to access the application.
  • If you've never lived on campus or applied to housing before, go to MyHousing to access the application.

Check In/Check Out

Summer residents are served by neighborhood desks in Shenandoah, which is where you'll check in and check out. You'll receive more specific information closer to your move-in date.
