Student Summer Housing


To qualify for summer housing, Bowdoin students must be employed by the College or have received a research fellowship or funded internship through the College which requires them to be in Brunswick for the role. Remote internships, even if funded by the College, would not qualify a student for on-campus housing. Student Employees must be working a minimum of 20 hours per week on campus during the summer — this minimum may be met by working more than one job on campus. We expect housing to open by June 5th and will extend through August 13th.

Any student wishing to live in campus summer housing must also be in good social standing. All students will need to accurately complete and read the terms of the lease to ensure that they can meet all the requirements of summer housing. A supervisor's signature will also be required on the lease to confirm employment or research fellowship.

Summer Housing Application

If you meet the above requirements, you may submit your application for Bowdoin Summer Housing here: Summer Housing Application


The summer housing rental rate is $70.00 per week. Student employees will be charged their summer rent through bi-weekly payroll deductions. In most cases, students receiving fellowships receive a housing allowance paid by the Department that is offering the fellowship.


While living in campus housing, students are expected to comply with all of the guidelines contained in the Apartment Lease Agreement.  

Living Arrangements

Apartment and room assignments will be confirmed after receipt of the summer housing applications. We will assign students within campus apartments for this summer and most students will have a roommate. We will try to accommodate roommate requests where feasible, but cannot guarantee that all requests will be met.
