Summer 2020 Housing Details

We're excited you're interested in staying at Cornish Commons over the summer. Below you will find all the details you need to make your decision about summer housing and the application. Please review carefully to ensure you have a successful summer.


Can I stay in my current room or move to my fall room now?

We have a small number of rooms used by Cornish students over the summer. The rest of the rooms are used by groups and interns. We condense all Cornish students onto the same floor for the summer. While you will have to move, you will be able to enjoy the comfort of remaining with fellow members of our Cornish community!


When will I have to move rooms for summer?

Your summer room will most likely become available between May 2 and May 7. The exact date of your room change will be subject to availability. You should be prepared to move once notified that your room is ready, and transition within a designated period of time. Housing staff will communicate directly with you on your room change status.


Can I live in Cornish Commons even if I won't be a student in the fall or living on-campus in the fall?

You must be a student in the fall and have a signed housing agreement for the fall to live in Cornish Commons over the summer. We have very limited space and availability is limited to those who will be continuing as housing students in the fall.


If needed, find out more about applying for this coming fall on our Apply page.  


What is the application deadline for summer housing?

With limited rooms and room types, there is no deadline, we will continue to accept applications until we are full for the summer. The sooner you submit your application, the more likely it is that we will have a space for you.


When does summer housing start and end?

Summer housing starts on May 2 when the building closes for the academic year and ends on Aug 15. You will be able to move into your academic year room around this date, subject to your room be ready for the fall.


What are the rates?

Single - $3,600 | Single w/kitchen - $4,325 | Double $2,935 | Double w/kitchen $3,600

Rates are for the entire summer, and we do not offer prorated rates for shorter stays. We are unable to offer triple rooms for the summer. We have limited availability of all room types.


How does payment work?

Payment is due in full before the start of summer on May 3. If you would like to enter into a payment plan for your housing charges, please see the Student Accounts office at MCC.


Is there a meal plan for the summer?

There are limited hours at Nellie's Café and several stretches of time when the café will be closed during the summer. There is no set meal plan for the summer period. Students in non-kitchenette rooms will be provided a complimentary MicroFridge for use. Students should consider this in their planning and determine how they can best utilize the 20th floor kitchen as part of their meal planning for the summer.
