Summer Housing


Taking summer classes?

To provide more flexibility to students who are looking to work on campus or take summer classes, on-campus summer housing is available to Clarke students at no charge. Please be advised that while there is no charge, this is considered a taxable benefit.* Although tax rates vary by person, the typical individual does not pay more than $10 per week.

To be eligible for the free housing:

  • The student must live on campus during the current Spring semester and the subsequent Fall semester AND
  • The student must be enrolled in at least six credit hours at Clarke (includes online CIC consortium courses).
  • The student must work at least 15 hours per week on Clarke’s campus.

Summer housing will be offered in the Catherine Dunn Apartments. Each apartment has 6 private bedrooms. The six occupants share a kitchen, living room, and two bathrooms. Assignments will be made depending upon intended arrival and departure dates.

If a person chooses to live on campus during the summer, but does not qualify for the free room through the above stipulations, they will be billed at the rate of $120 per week. Billing may be retroactive.
