Phase One: Intent to Live in Summer Housing
If you are planning on living on campus for the upcoming summer session(s), you will need to complete your Intent to Return to Campus Housing through RoomRez (located on the Inside Loyola page), even if a department is paying your summer housing. The open enrollment period to declare your Intent to Live in Summer Housing begins April 20, 2015 at 9:00 AM. There is no end date to Summer Housing Registration, however, preference will be given to students that register before May 1, 2015. You will need to log in to your Inside Loyola account and click on the link called RoomRez Housing Portal using your Loyola Username and Password. During this phase, you will apply for housing for the upcoming summer, and update your home and emergency contact information. You will then have the opportunity to sign your summer housing contract. If you do not sign your contract you will not be able to complete this phase or go through with the remainder of the process.
The Summer Sessions are listed on the RoomRez Portal as follows:
- Summer 15 Session I - Select this term if you are living on-campus for Session I only
- Summer 15 Session II - Select this term if you are living on-campus for Session II only
- Summer 15 Session I & II - Select this term if you are living on-campus for the Entire Summer
If you complete your Intent to Live in Summer Housing, you will be given the opportunity to request summer roommates. Please keep in mind that all students must complete Phase One in order to request a roommate. We cannot guarantee the fruition of all requests.
Phase Two: Roommate Requests
During Phase two, students will have the opportunity to request the roommates they would like to live with in summer housing - this phase can take place only after you have completed Phase One. You do NOT have to create a roommate group. You will need to email Emma Freese with any roommate requests you may have. Students can create complete groups of 4 or 6 people. Students can all request a specific direct roommate. Student Life will assign you roommates if you do not have a request for roommates. We cannot guarantee the fruition of all requests. You must email Emma Freese by May 4, 2015 at 5pm.
Here is an exam of the email we need from you.

Please remember, for Summer Housing, you do NOT need to be in a roommate group. Additionally, you do NOT select a room. Student Life will assign students to their summer room assignments and try to accommodate all created roommate groups and special roommate requests. Student Life will attempt to accommodate all requests, however assignments are based on many factors, such as the summer sessions that students will be attending and the spaces available. Additionally, please keep in mind that you can only create a group with those who have officially applied for summer housing.
