Summer Housing

Summer Housing for UAlbany Students 

Eligible students must complete the summer housing application on the Housing Portal to live on campus during the summer session.  

The Summer 2021 housing application was due on April 30, 2021. Summer 2021 room rates are $250 per week

Students who have been approved for summer housing will be notified of their check-in date and time. Summer housing ends at 6 p.m. August 13, 2021. 

Students who have been approved for summer housing must relocate to Empire Commons

That means you must check out of your spring housing, return your keys, and move all your belongings to your summer housing assignment. Please coordinate your checkout with your quad or apartment office.

Who is eligible for summer housing?

Current UAlbany students are eligible to apply for summer housing if they meet at least one of the following criteria: 

  • They are enrolled in Summer Session courses

  • They are completing in-person academic internship in the Capital Region

  • They are conducting in-person academic research at the University

  • They are completing on-campus employment 

  • They are living in Empire Commons during the Fall 2021 semester

  • They cannot return to their permanent address because: 

    • it is no longer a safe place for them

    • their family has become homeless

    • it is no longer accessible to them due to a change in guardianship status

    • it is no longer welcoming to them due to their sexual orientation or gender identity

    • it is not in the continental United States

Health & Safety Guidelines 

Students who are approved for Summer Housing must follow the health and safety guidelines listed on the University’s COVID-19 website, including the rules outlined on the following pages: 

Please note that, per the Housing License, “the University reserves the right to change room assignments for health, safety, repair services, vacancy consolidation, disciplinary sanctions, unresolved issues in compatibility of roommates, or other reasons at the discretion of the Department of Residential Life.” 


Summer Housing for Non-UAlbany Students 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Summer 2021 housing is only open to current UAlbany students. 

We intend to reopen summer housing to conferences and camps, students from other institutions who are interning locally, and visiting academics and researchers in 2022. Please check back for updates.
