Additional Summer Housing Policies and Information

Cancellation

If you need to cancel your summer housing, you may do so prior to May 1, 2020. 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 have at least one roommate for a portion or all of your summer stay. If you know someone who is staying in summer housing, you can request them as your roommate on the application. If you do not, you will be assigned a roommate (or two different roommates if they are staying for separate dates). Only double-occupancy rooms are offered for summer. All furnishings must remain in the room.

Community Standards

Biola Community Standards are in effect, including Open House hours. Violation of these standards may result in permanently being removed from on-campus housing. Students who allow friends to stay with them for more than three nights will be fined up to $500 per week their friend was believed to have stayed.

Meal Plans

Summer meal plans are optional. If you would like to sign up for one, please request a summer meal plan. The Hart Hall kitchen is available for your use 24 hours a day.

Guests

A Guest Registration Form must be completed for anyone staying overnight. You are permitted a maximum of three nights for overnight guests during summer. Your roommate must approve of your plans for guests in advance, so be sure to speak with them prior to inviting someone to stay over one of your three permitted nights. Guests of the opposite gender will not be permitted to stay over.

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 to Hart Hall with you 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.
