2019 Housing Information for Education Department Summer Programs

hoosac-hall.jpgThis summer, the Education Department summer programs will be housed in Hoosac Hall. The room charge is $50 per calendar day for a private room and $25 per calendar day for a double room with a roommate.

To apply for on-campus housing for any of the 2019 Education Department summer programs, please complete the summer housing application which includes paying your non-refundable $100 housing deposit. Applications are due no later than Friday, May 24th. You will receive your specific housing assignment information in mid-June.

Here are the answers to some common housing questions summer program participants have:

1. How are assignments made?

Assignments are made in the order that participants paid their deposit for the program. In other words, a person who paid a deposit in January will be assigned before someone who paid a deposit in February.

2. May I choose what type of room I will live in?

Yes. You may choose to live in a private room or a double room with a roommate.

3. I'm not familiar with Hoosac Hall. Can you describe the building for me?

Hoosac Hall is a traditional-style residence hall. The entry level of the building is air-conditioned and provides lounges, a laundry room and game room. Each residential floor has its own lounges and bathrooms and each room comes equipped with a MicroFridge. This is a specially designed multi-appliance with both a refrigerator/freezer and microwave. WiFi is available throughout the building.

4. May I choose my own roommate?

The application form allows you to provide us with the name of a preferred roommate. Again, we will do our best to provide you with your roommate choice. To insure a match, please make sure that you and your roommate both write each other's names on your applications and that you both submit your applications by the Friday, May 24th deadline.

5. I want to live in a double room, but I do not have a roommate in mind. What should I do?

If you select a double room as your preferred room type and do not provide a roommate choice, we will randomly assign you another participant who is looking for a roommate. If we cannot identify a roommate for you, you will be charged the private room rate.

6. I have a medical or psychological issue that requires a housing accommodation. What should I do?

Please visit the College's Disability Resouces web page for information about requesting a housing accommodation. Instructions and required forms are available there. Please note the Wednesday, May 1st deadline for submission of the completed paperwork.

7. Can I cancel my housing request after I submit an application?

Your $100 deposit is non-refundable, however, you can modify or withdraw your housing request any time up to Friday, June 7th and not be responsible for the remaining portion of your housing bill.

8. What else should I know about living on campus this summer?

Well.....There's a lot more to know and we have a guide that we will make available to you when we provide you your specific assignment. This publication will contain everything from check-in/check-out information to a packing list. In the meantime, if you have any housing questions feel free to contact the Residential Programs & Services office at rps@mcla.edu or by calling 413-662-5249.
