Important Notes About Summer Housing

  • Dates will be flexible, and with notice, no termination penalties, however; students with a housing contract that consists of less than 30 consecutive days will be subject to city and state sales tax 
  • Students currently living with us will be given priority for housing while all new applicants will be assigned based on the date and time of the completed application (when the housing deposit is completed) and availability.
  • Meal plans are not available with summer housing. Bear Creek has apartment-style living, equipped with kitchens.
  • Summer housing applicants can request a single room in a Bear Creek studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, or four-bedroom apartment. Specific assignment requests (building, room, type of accommodation, or a specific roommate) are not guaranteed. You can find the different floorplan options at
  • New freshmen students may live with us during the summer, but it is not required and does not count towards the freshman live-on requirement. If you are a freshman admitted for summer 2020 and will be living on-campus in the fall, please ensure you completely submit both applications in the MyCULiving portal.
  • Parking permits are available through Parking & Transportation Services. If only short-term parking is needed, metered and payment machine lots are located around campus as well as pay-by-phone through Parkmobile. You can review the parking map for lot information.
