• Summer Housing

    On-campus summer housing is available for all Ohio Dominican undergraduate students. 

    Summer Housing Contract

    The Summer Housing Contract is available in the Residence Life Office, Erskine 145, in mid-March. The application and contract will provide the student a bed in ODU's housing system. It does not guarantee a particular room or roommate.

    Summer Housing Guidelines 

    • ALL Ohio Dominican University campus policies remain the same during the summer term.
    • The summer housing may be selected for the number of weeks for the class. Additional weeks may be added provided students are already registered for the fall term. 
    • Students who are enrolled in at least one ODU summer course will be given preference in room availability, followed by students working at ODU at the request of the department. All others requesting housing during the summer must be registered for classes for the fall 2013 semester. A class schedule printed from ODU Online (not ANGEL) must be attached to your application and contract.
    • Students will be housed in one general location in Sansbury Hall requiring current spring students to move from current rooms/suites into summer assignments.
    • Students must follow established timelines for moving from one room to another (into summer housing, into fall room, and returning keys/paperwork). 
    • Students will be billed for all dates of occupancy regardless of how often they stay in the room. This includes the breaks between academic sessions. If a student has not checked out with an RA by Sunday they will be billed for the entire following week.

    Dining Services

    • Summer hours for food services and the Bishop James A Griffin Student Center will be emailed to all students. 
    • Meal plans are not active during the summer. Students are required to buy a minimum number of points for summer term (these are billed on the contract). 
    • For students utilizing Panther Points to dine in Hamilton Hall when summer conferences are here, the summer rates will be on the Summer Housing Contract.
    • Panther points are non-refundable. Points can be used for meals, at the regular meal cost, served in Hamilton Hall during open hours or at the Zest in the student center. The minimum points will not cover every meal, Monday – Friday, for the full Summer School term. 
    • When visiting groups such as summer conferences are on campus and utilizing the cafeteria, students will also have access during these times including weekends and days beyond the Summer School term. 
    • Meals are not provided during the 2-week May short term schedule.
    • Hamilton Hall is closed for the July 4 holiday.
