Summer Residence

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

  • SMC Residence is responsible for all student residence bookings.
  • Conference Services is responsible for 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

Students during the Summer

SMC Residence is delighted to accommodate students through the summer months with the flexibility to suit your needs. To be eligible for summer housing, you must be willing to stay for either:

  • Half summer term only
    • First Term: May 5 to June 24, 2024
    • Second Term: July 1 to August 17, 2024
  • Full summer term: May 5 to August 17, 2024

Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate short-term or custom-length stays in summer residence. We do not rent rooms on a nightly or weekly basis.

Summer Residence Spaces

Summer residents are housed in either Sorbara Hall or Historic House. Full term stays are not available in Sorbara Hall, and will be exclusively assigned to the Historic Houses. First term only students will be assigned to either Sorbara Hall or Historic House.
