Summer Living On Campus

OC is Home for the Summer

Living at OC during the summer allows students to be on campus to continue their education, participate in summer programs and events, and have access to campus offices and resources.

During the summer, OC offers safe, convenient, and affordable on-campus summer living in the University Village Apartments for students enrolled in either summer or fall classes, participating in a university-sponsored program, or campus job.

Summer Housing Financials

Summer living costs will be placed on student accounts. Balances will reflect sessions selected on the summer application. Students living on campus during the summer can pay either through their student account online or pay cash or check at the cashier's window in the Business Office, located in Heritage Plaza.

  • Students with outstanding balances of greater than $500 at the end of the spring semester will not be eligible for summer student housing without the prior approval of the student's Personal Financial Counselor (PFC).
  • Payment for summer housing charges must either be paid in full before the start of the summer sessions, or in regular monthly/weekly payments during the summer sessions. Students are responsible for making these payment arrangements with their Personal Financial Counselor. All summer housing balances must be paid in full at least two weeks prior to the start of the fall semester.
  • 100% of housing charges will be billed to all students who reserve summer housing. If the student qualifies for a housing discount based on student employment at OC, 50% of those charges for that month will be credited to their balance after the criteria (based on numbers of hours worked) for that housing discount have been met. Students are responsible for 100% of housing charges they incur if they do not reach the criteria for receiving a housing discount.
  • Students with summer housing balances will not be allowed to enroll for a future semester until their summer housing account balance is paid in full. Students already enrolled for the fall who have outstanding summer housing balances greater than $200 at the end of summer are subject to having their fall class schedule dropped.
  • Summer financial aid must first pay for summer tuition expenses. Additional financial aid may be transferred to the student's summer housing account upon the student's request.
