Where is summer housing on campus?

Summer school housing will be in Toler Residence Hall for Summer 2020.  Students of all classifications and programs will be housed in this traditional style co-ed residence hall, and assigned to single rooms. 

Loyola Village will also be a summer housing option available that offers apartment style living. Current spring residents can apply to continue to live in the same LV room for the summer and any off-campus students that apply and meet the criteria (including they are 21+).  LV residents will be assigned to single rooms (some LV units have up to 3 bedrooms so students may have roommates within the unit but not within the same room).

Those who are approved to live in LV are required to have a meal plan for $23/day. If students would prefer to live in Toler to have closer access to the dining facility that will be permitted if space is available. 

How much does summer housing cost? 

For Summer 2020 USF charges room and board on a daily pro rate in the summer. Students are charged based on the days they are booked and approved to live on campus.

This summer all students will be booked in a single room, but at the double room rate of $39/day.
