Summer Residence bookings are managed by two separate departments, depending on the client:

  • SMC Residence handles all student bookings.
  • Conference Services handles all external bookings, including school groups, language camps, and conferences.

If you are an external group looking to book space for the summer, please contact our Conference Services Office by emailing
