Student Summer Housing

Overview

Details for summer housing for 2022 will become available in the Spring semester and the housing application process generally begins in early April. To qualify for summer housing, Bowdoin students must be employed by the College or who have received a research fellowship or funded internship through the College which requires them to be in Brunswick for the role.  At this time, we do not anticipate that remote internships would qualify 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 6th and will extend through August 14th.

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.

Who qualifies for housing at Bowdoin in the summer?

Housing is designated for students carrying out projects and work in Maine that is sponsored by and connected to Bowdoin College.

  1. Students working at least 20 hours per week as a Bowdoin student employee.
  2. Students working at least 20 hours per week on a Bowdoin-funded fellowship or internship, whose employer/ supervisor is located in Maine.

Cost

The summer housing rental rate is $65.00 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.

Conduct

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.
