Summer Housing Information 2013


Information for Summer Housing 2014 will be update in spring 2014.

Summer Housing 2013

Registration begins April 8th.

Priority is given to students who register by April 20th.


Summer Rent 2013 is $250 per month. 


Summer Housing Registration and Information: Summer housing will be available to Rhodes students who were enrolled full-time in the spring of 2013 and who will be enrolled full-time in the fall of 2013.


Submission of an application does not guarantee an offer for housing. If demand is higher than space available, priority will be given according to these considerations: Students working in the REACH program or on a faculty-sponsored research or internship on campus or in Memphis.  Students taking Rhodes Summer School classes*.  Students employed for the summer by Rhodes. Students who wish to live at Rhodes, but do not meet the above criteria.


*Students staying just to take summer classes can apply for six weeks of summer housing for $375.00.  Must move out by June 16th.


ROOMS, ROOMMATES AND SINGLES: Apartment and room assignments will be made after the priority deadline. Because of the short timeframe, the Residence Life Office will make summer assignments. Students participating in the summer REACH programs will be assigned to apartments in East Village-A. They will be assigned to live with other students participating in the REACH designated programs. You may, and are encouraged to, list three roommates with whom you would like to live.  Apartments will be assigned to students who currently live in the apartment, or who will live in the apartment next year and, then in random order thereafter.  An apartment will be filled before another one is opened.


All other students will be assigned to a room in Bellingrath or Ellett Halls.  Rooms will be assigned with these considerations: first, students who currently live or who will live in a particular room and secondly, on seniority.  Rooms will be filled before additional rooms are “opened”.  If you do not have a roommate in mind – or if your intended roommate does not receive summer housing – the Residence Life Office will help you locate a roommate.  As a last resort, we will make roommate assignments.


HOUSING AGREEMENT AND HANDBOOK: Students are responsible for reading all information in the summer housing agreement prior to signing it. Students in summer housing must follow all policies outlined in the 2012-2013 student handbook located on-line.


PAYING RENT: All rent charges for the summer will be posted on accounts by June 1, 2013. These bills must be paid prior to Enrollment Clearance in the fall. When a student checks out of a room, all belongings must be removed, and the key returned to the Residence Life Office. Any items left behind will be discarded. The three ′months′ of summer housing are:


Month 1:    May 6-June 7, 2013

Month 2:    June 8-July 12, 2013

Month 3:    July 13-August 18, 2013


Summer Housing will be $250 per month.  Housing costs will not be pro-rated. If you reside in or have belongings in College housing for any portion of a month, you will be billed for that month of summer housing. Students may not apply for summer housing as a way to achieve an early arrival into fall semester housing. STORAGE: According to the College′s storage policy, a student may not use a College residence to store another student′s belongings.  If you "babysit" a piece of furniture in your apartment/room for another student over the summer, you are responsible for moving it to your assigned room at the end of the summer. A resident is prohibited from storing his/her own belongings on campus without being in residence.


MOVING INTO SUMMER HOUSING FOR CURRENT RHODES COLLEGE RESIDENTS: Students will stay in their current room until the halls have closed for commencement. Students who rent for the first month will move into summer housing May 18-19 or May 25-27.  Given the number of seniors in East Village-A, and other summer buildings and the amount of time needed to clean the building, these dates are not flexible. Indicate any conflicts on your application. If possible, the Residence Life Office will work with the conflict. Students currently living in East Village-A, and other summer buildings may need to move early to allow for cleaning. If this is the case, you will be contacted individually. Students who do not currently reside on campus will be able to move into summer housing no earlier than May 18.


MOVE OUT AT THE END OF SUMMER FOR RHODES COLLEGE RESIDENTS in CAMPUS HOUSING FOR FALL 2013: Residents will move out of summer housing and into fall housing on July 27-28, 2013 or August 2-3. Belongings left in summer housing after August 3 will be discarded. Because of cleaning and early arrivals, Residence Life and Physical Plant cannot be flexible on these dates. Under no circumstances will students be permitted to move into their fall housing assignments before July 27, 2013. Students who are not scheduled to live on campus for the fall 2013 semester will need to move out of campus housing by August 3.
