Summer Housing

All students should be prepared to share rooms if necessary (single rooms will be assigned by class year). The required forms to apply for summer housing are available on the Forms and Applications page.


Recent graduates of Smith College and non-Smith students do not qualify for college housing.

Payment & Fees

The fees for rooms only in Wilder is per week (Sunday through Saturday). There is no meal plan for this house. Kitchen privileges in this house is conditional based on the upkeep and sanitation of the kitchen. Students must also plan to provide their own cooking equipment and utensils.

The fees for room and board in Comstock and Park (Meal Plan I and II; see below) are per week, or any part of a week.

We have a custom calculator so you can figure out your summer housing costs! Use this link to estimate your total payment.

Your Responsibility

When you contract for the weeks requested, you are expected and responsible for paying the full amount regardless of whether you stay the entire time or not. You will be responsible for the total cost of any given full week, regardless of when your checkout date is. You will not be able to subtract weeks or change any weeks already contracted for, but you can always add weeks.

If you are unsure of the number of weeks you will need, please only sign up for the minimal amount needed and add later. Rooms will be inspected and any damages and/or cleaning charges will be assessed to you. If you don't return the keys to your room and/or the summer dining card, you will billed for the replacement cost of these items.
