Summer Housing and Employment

Summer Housing

Summer housing at Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) is a limited offering reserved for students who meet one or more of the following criteria: 

  • Are employment by the University 
  • Are enrolled in summer courses, 
  • Are an international student who can’t return home.

Confirmation of summer housing is subject to the completion of the following steps:

  • Submission of the Summer Housing Form.
  • Payment of a $100 summer housing deposit to the Business Office.

The deposit is refundable and will be credited to your student account by September 1 under the following conditions:

  • Return of your key to EMU Student Life.
  • Ensuring your living space is left in a clean condition with no damage exceeding normal wear.

Room assignments will be allocated by EMU Student Life. While roommate requests can be submitted on the Summer Housing Form, please note that they are accepted on a best-effort basis and cannot be guaranteed.

All students residing on campus during the summer are required to abide by EMU policies and procedures.

Continued summer housing eligibility is contingent upon maintaining employment with EMU (minimum of 30 hours per week) and/or enrollment in EMU summer courses without any policy violations.

Cost:  Cost for summer housing includes a $15/day rate for students who are taking classes or working at EMU this summer and $10/day for international students who are remaining on campus.
