The Summer Housing Lottery for Caltech students will be conducted by the Housing Office, and students who are interested in living on campus will be required to apply for housing and have a reason to be on campus for summer 2022. The application can be found on the Housing website and must be submitted by Monday, May 16, 2022 at 12pm (noon). Acceptable reasons include a SURF, non-SURF campus research/internship, non-SURF JPL research/internship or other local employment. Graduated seniors are not eligible.
Depending on interest for summer housing, we will attempt to have everyone in a single room. Where possible, students who can stay in their current assignment ("squatting") will have priority, followed by students who can move into their fall assignment ("settling"). Students who can do neither will then select a summer assignment via lottery. Lottery numbers will be posted by Wednesday, May 18, along with lottery appointments for Thursday, May 19, and Friday, May 20. All 8 houses will be available to be selected. There will be limited availability in Bechtel, as this residence will host the WAVE and FSRI programs this summer.
The summer contract period will be from June 12, 2022, through August 21, 2022. Students who need to stay beyond August 21 will be able to apply for an extension over the summer to stay between the end of the summer contract and the beginning of the fall contract. Students without a fall housing assignment will need to move out by noon on August 21, 2022. Students with a fall housing assignment who do not request to stay during the extension period will move their belongings to their fall assignment when the new room becomes available (some time between Saturday, August 20, and Monday, August 22).
What is ...
All Caltech students living in undergraduate residences have a base rate of $2,807.00 per person, per term. For the purpose of calculating fees, the summer term is defined as:
- June 12 - August 21, 2022
All Caltech students living in undergraduate residences are also automatically enrolled in the declining balance board plan: $500.00/term
Between August 20th and August 22nd, residents must move to their fall assignments (if room differs from their summer assignment.)
The summer housing term is between June 12 and August 21, 2022. Housing past August 21, 2022 will be available only to students with a Fall 2022-2023 housing assignment who have submitted an extension request. The cost of housing beyond August 21 will be prorated at the summer daily rate of $39.54 per calendar day.
All students interested in living in campus housing for the summer must apply and include an explanation of their need for housing.
Graduating seniors are not eligible to live on campus
Students with a Fall 2022-23 housing contract will be able to apply for an extension over the summer to stay between the end of the summer contract and the beginning of the fall contract. More information will be made available after spring term.
The standard 10-week summer contract dates are June 12 – August 21, 2022. Housing fees for this period (or any portion of this period) will be processed in July and posted to the July 10th Bursar's statement. Students with a fall housing assignment may remain in housing past August 21, 2022, but they will have to submit the UG Summer Extension Application (available mid-July) and move to their fall housing assignment between August 20-22, 2022. Housing fees for any occupancy dates between August 22 – September 20, 2022 will be processed in October and posted to the October 10th Bursar's statement.
All summer contracts start June 12, 2022 and end on August 21, 2022. If you need to stay past August 21st, you must submit the summer extension form and move to your fall assignment between August 20-22, 2022. Housing beyond the contract period will be prorated at the daily rate.
We allow students to store belongings in their fall assignment at no charge between their summer and fall contracts, provided they follow proper procedures. This year, that period will be from August 22 through September 20, 2022. There is no free storage during the summer contract period (June 12 - August 21, 2022).
