Interim & Summer Housing

Interim Housing

Interim housing is available for current undergraduate students who are:

  • Taking a May intensive course
  • Graduating seniors who are not attending the Bahamas trip but need housing during the week leading up to Commencement
  • Applying for summer housing and need to stay on campus between the spring and summer sessions

There are two options for interim housing based upon the above criteria:

Interim Housing, Option 1 (students not staying for summer housing)

  • Dates: May 13th – May 21st
  • Costs $400.00 and will be located in Miller Hall. A limited meal plan is required and is included in the cost.

Interim Housing, Option 2 (only students staying for summer housing)

  • Dates: May 13th – May 30th
  • Costs $650.00 and will be located in Miller Hall until May 21st; students will transition to summer housing assignments in Orchard South on May 21st. A meal plan is required and included only for May 14th through 21st and is included in the cost.

Please note that, for both interim housing options, students will remain in their spring housing assignment for the night of May 13th and then will transition to Miller Hall between 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 14th. Most rooms in Miller Hall are double occupancy and students living in interim housing should expect to have a roommate. There is an option in the application to request a specific roommate (requests must be reciprocal).

Seniors who are participating in the Bentley in the Bahamas trip do not need to request interim housing.

 

Summer Housing

Summer housing is available during both academic sessions (Summer 1 and Summer 2) for current undergraduate students who are:

  • Taking summer courses at Bentley
  • Working at a job or internship in the Boston area
  • Working an on-campus job at Bentley

Students will be able to choose whether they need housing for session 1, session 2, or both. All summer housing will take place in Orchard South. Because these are full apartments with kitchens, there will be no summer meal plan offered. Students will be responsible for buying and preparing their own food.

Information about summer housing dates and rates:

Summer Session 1: Monday, May 30th – Tuesday, July 12th

  • Single Occupancy Rate (Limited Availability): $2,250.00 per person
  • Double Occupancy Rate: $1,950.00 per person

Summer Session 2: Sunday, July 10th – Tuesday, August 23rd

  • Single Occupancy Rate (Limited Availability): $2,250.00 per person
  • Double Occupancy Rate: $1,950.00 per person

Orchard South apartments each accommodate five (5) students, containing two double bedrooms and one single bedroom. Therefore single room availability is very limited. Students will be able to note any specific roommate/suitemate requests in the application, as well as indicate whether a single or double room is their top preference.

Please note that summer housing is only available for current undergraduate students.

 

Application

To apply for interim and/or summer housing, please log into the Housing Portal and complete the 2022 Interim and Summer Housing Application, located under the “forms and applications” menu.

The application will allow you to select whether you are requesting interim housing, summer housing, or both. If you are requesting summer housing, you will then specify which summer session(s) you will need housing. You can also list any specific roommate requests for interim and/or summer housing. All roommate requests must be reciprocal, meaning all parties involved must request each other in their application. We will do our best to honor roommate requests whenever possible.

The application is due by 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 27th, 2022. Please make sure to log into the Housing Portal and complete the application by that time if you would like to request interim and/or summer housing.
