Summer Housing

Eligibility

  • Summer housing will be available to unmarried undergraduate students who are continuing students pre-registered for the upcoming fall semester. In addition, graduating students currently living in campus housing who also intend on enrolling in a summer course are eligible for summer housing.
  • Summer housing will be available May 9, 2021 - August 25, 2021. Students can sign up for housing for the full summer, or for only Summer Session A (May 9 - June 26). Students who do not plan on living in campus housing may be asked to live in transitional housing on campus for the last two weeks of summer housing, in order to provide sufficient time for fall opening preparations.

Cost

  • Daily rate: $14.22
  • Total: $1550 for full summer

Your student account will be billed for your entire stay based on your contracted check-in and check-out dates. Please check with the Accounting Office to find out what day your balance is due.

How to Apply

The Summer Housing Application is available on My Housing Self Service from April 1 - April 26, 2021.


Additional Summer Housing Policies and Information

Spring 2021 Residential Students

As Dr. Corey shared in his announcement about the phases, “For those moving onto campus in the spring, and to assist with their educational progress, students taking courses in either summer session A or B will be allowed to continue to live in our residences during those enrolled summer sessions at no charge for housing.” As a Spring 2021 residential student, you are eligible for free summer housing if you also enroll in at least one summer course.

Cancellation

If you need to cancel your summer housing, you may do so prior to May 3, 2021. After May 1, you will incur a $100 cancellation fee. In order to cancel you should email undergrad.housing@biola.edu expressing your desire to cancel and what date you plan on moving out of if you are already living in summer housing.

Occupancy/Furniture

You will not have a roommate for your stay in summer housing due to Los Angeles county COVID-19 guidelines. You will be living in a double occupancy room, which means there will be two sets of furniture. All furnishings must remain in the room.

Community Standards

Biola Community Standards are in effect. There are no open hours during summer housing and you are not permitted to be in a residence hall room that is not your own. Please review the COVID-19 and Public Health-Informed Housing Policies to better understand what living on campus will be like for the summer. Should any changes occur due to changes in LA County Guidelines, students will be informed.

Meal Plans

Summer meal plans are required. Should county guidelines for Institutions of Higher Education change to allow kitchens and common areas to reopen, we will do so and meal plans will become optional.

Mail

If you want to receive mail during summer and haven’t signed up for a summer mailbox, make sure you visit Mail and Parcel Services next to Common Grounds to sign up for one.

Parking

If you have a vehicle on campus during summer you are able to use the one you had during the spring semester. If you did not have a parking permit, and need one, please visit the Campus Safety Office by Café Biola to find out more information.

Bicycles

If you are commuting to campus via bicycle over the summer, your bicycle must be registered with Campus Safety (free service) and may not be kept on campus overnight or on the weekends. 

If you are living in summer housing, take your bicycle with you to Hart Hall or Stewart Hall and lock it in the bike racks there. Bicycles found elsewhere on campus or that do not have a permit will be collected by Campus Safety and kept for a period of 90 days before they are donated to a local charity. Contact Campus Safety for instructions and more information.
