Updated for 2020
Summer housing will be available only to Colby student workers, research assistants, and students receiving credit for local internships. Graduated seniors will be housed last.
The deadline for submitting housing forms is Monday, May 4th, 2020. Housing is limited, and students submitting forms after the deadline will not receive housing.
The cost of summer housing is $125/Week or $17.86/Day which is deducted from student’s biweekly paycheck. This fee includes three daily meals in the dining hall.
Students will be able to move in Thursday, May 28th, and housing will be available until 5 pm on Saturday, August 8th.
Housing will be located in Heights, Loenard, Sturtevant, and Taylor. Chem-free housing will be available.
Move-in and Move-out
Students may only live on campus as long as they are employed and are permitted to move in no sooner than 48 hours before their job starts. Students must move out no later than 48 hours after their job ends or the above-scheduled move-out date, whichever comes first. All students are responsible for supplying Special Programs with accurate move in and move out dates in their housing application. Should these dates change at any time, we require written notice of the change by email. Students will be charged for housing at the rate listed above for every day they spend on campus. Official dates of employment, as well as our recorded dates for key pick-up and drop-off will be used to verify the dates provided by the student for accurate assessment of housing fees.
Key Pickup and Drop off
Students will be expected to pick up their keys from Special Programs on their scheduled day of arrival and drop them off on their scheduled day of departure. Failure to do so may result in our inability to accurately assess your housing fees and/or result in late key return fees. Students will be charged a fee of $50/key for keys that are not returned by 5:00 pm on Sunday, August 9th.
Housing Fees and Payment
Housing fees are typically deducted from the students Biweekly paycheck. In the event that fees are not removed from the student’s paycheck, it is the student’s responsibility to notify payroll of the error. Any outstanding fees at the end of the summer will be posted to the student’s Colby account.
Though it is rare, some campus employers cover the cost of housing for their summer workers. Please communicate with your employer before the summer housing session begins to determine if your housing is covered. If Special Programs and the payroll office are not made aware that your housing is covered by your employer, your housing fees will likely be deducted from your biweekly paycheck. If this occurs, please have your employer send an email to Special Programs and the Payroll office about the issue.
Pre-Board and Post-Board Housing
Special Programs is able to provide housing between the above dates only. All post-board (senior week) and pre-board (after summer housing ends) requests are approved by the Office of Student Life. Please contact their office for more details.
If you have received permission from Student Life to remain on campus post-board through senior week, it is possible that you will be asked to move into your summer room on May 27. Students will be notified if their room becomes available and will be expected to move within 12 hours to ensure all rooms are available for cleaning before the scheduled move-in day.
Only students who receive pre-board permission from Student Life will be able to remain on campus between the end of summer housing and the fall semester. All other students will be required to move out of their summer rooms by 5:00 pm on Saturday, August 8th. Students staying without permission will be fined.
Please read though all available materials before contacting Special Programs with further questions.
