Housing and Dining

Summer Sessions

Students who have completed their registration (by making tuition payment) for a summer course may request campus housing with a (required) meal plan on a first-come, first-served basis.

A limited number of single rooms are available for both men and women to live in a designated Mount Holyoke residence hall.  Each room provides a bed, desk and chair, dresser and wireless internet.  Residents should bring their own sheets and towels; laundry facilities are available in the residence hall. There are kitchenettes with microwave ovens on each floor. 

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served Monday to Friday buffet style in one of the College’s dining facilities. There will be no meals served on weekends.

The total cost of a single room and three meals a day (Mon-Fri only) for each five-week summer session is $1,175.  There is an extra fee to stay on campus between Summer Sessions (continuous). See below for more details and registration instructions.

MHC students have the option to share a double room but must apply together. The cost for each roommate in a double room is $1,050 for each five-week summer session.
