New Student Housing and Commuter Forms

Whether you want to live on or off campus, our housing process will begin after you have committed to Maryville College with your $300 enrollment deposit. After we receive the deposit, you will receive instructions for completing a housing application/questionnaire on the Becoming-A-Scot web portal in the spring. Our Residence Life staff will use this information to begin matching roommates in the summer, so please be patient!

Summer Housing

Summer Housing Conditions 

Click here to complete the Summer Housing Application.

Summer Rooms will be available from May 19 at 1:00pm until August 10 at 9:00pm.  Students will need to notify the Residence Life office if they need housing before or after these dates. If you need housing between Spring finals and May 19, you will stay in your current room and must plan to move into your summer housing assignment between 1pm & 10pm on May 19, unless otherwise notified or approved. This date is non-negotiable and is based solely on the housekeeping schedule. If you are unable to move on May 19, you will need to find other arrangements for housing between the end of finals and the date you wish to move into your summer space.  Students who do not comply will be charged a $25 improper checkout fee.

At the end of the summer, moving to your fall housing space will happen as rooms are cleaned and become available.  You will be notified of the day you are to move rooms and you will have a 24 hour window during which you must be completely moved out of your summer housing assignment.  This day may fall during the middle of the week, so be prepared to make necessary arrangements.  You will be charged a $25 improper checkout if you miss the deadline time to be out of your summer housing assignment.

Room assignments and roommates will be assigned based on date priority.

The cost of the room is listed on the front of the application; the entirety of your rent due for the summer period will be applied to your bill at the beginning of summer housing. You will be expected to pay two weeks of rent in advance before you move to your summer assignment. Failure to pay the first two weeks by May 19 will result in the termination of your housing contract.  Rent will be paid in the Business Office. It is your responsibility to pay on your account throughout the summer and your account must be paid off by July 10.

Students who graduate in May 2015 are not eligible for summer housing, unless taking a summer class.


Selection of Suites:

This will be done on a priority basis by attendance at Summer Institute and application return date to the Office of Residence Life. If necessary a lottery process will be implemented. Summer housing is not guaranteed there is a limited amount of space available, so be sure to turn in your application as soon as possible.

First priority for summer housing will go to students who are attending summer school. On May 1st any remaining space will then be filled with students who are only working.

Summer housing will be in Gibson Hall on the 3rd & 4th floors and in the Court Street Apartments. To reside at Court Street, you must have a 3.0 GPA and clean judicial record. If suites/apartments are not full – roommate(s)/suitemate(s) will be assigned accordingly. CIE students may also be assigned to these spaces in order to fill our needs.

**For MC positions that are given a free room as part of compensation – this will be a double room. If you want any other type of room – you will be responsible for the difference in cost.
