Updated for 2019



Summer housing will be available only to Colby student workers, reaserch assistants, and students receiving credit for local internships. Graduated seniors will be housed last.


The deadline for submitting housing forms is Monday, May 6, 2019. Housing is limited, and students submitting forms after the deadline will not receive housing.


The cost of summer housing is $125 per week, which is automatically deducted from students’ biweekly paycheck. This fee includes three daily meals in the dining hall.


Students will be able to move in Thursday, May 30, and housing will be available until 5 p.m. Saturday, August 10.


Housing will be located in Roberts, Heights, Piper, and Perkins-Wilson. 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 are able to remain on campus no later than 48 hours after their job ends or the above-scheduled move-out date, whichever comes first.


Pre-Board and Post-Board Housing

Special Programs is able to provide housing between the above dates. All pre-board (after summer housing ends) and post-board (senior week) housing requests are approved by Kim Kenniston and the Office of Student Life. Please contact their office for 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 28 or May 29. 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 p.m. Saturday, August 10. Students staying without permission will be fined.

Please read though all available materials before contacting Special Programs with further questions.
