Students do not have to be enrolled in summer classes to be eligible for summer housing. In order for a student to be eligible, he or she must be enrolled as a full-time student for the upcoming fall semester. This includes first year students who have yet to begin classes at Southeast Tech.
The “Summer Move”
Residents who are living in the STI Housing complex during the academic year and wish to remain in housing for the summer may be asked to temporarily move to a different apartment for the duration of the summer contract. Each year, housing staff takes one of the halls “offline” for deep cleaning and necessary repairs. Typically, each hall will be taken offline once every two years. However, housing staff may take the same hall offline in consecutive years, depending on the condition of the buildings.
Residents who are asked to move during the summer will be given ample time to move their belongings into their summer apartment. The move usually takes place 1 to 2 weeks after the conclusion of the spring semester. At the conclusion of the summer, residents may be given the option to stay in their summer apartment, or return to the apartment they resided in during the previous academic year.
The summer contract covers the period between the end of the spring semester and the beginning of the following fall semester. For current tenants, the Summer 2014 contract covers May 10th–August 25th. Summer rent for 2014 is $850.00, which is due at the beginning of the summer academic term.
Incoming students who are enrolled for Fall 2014 are also eligible to stay in STI Housing for the summer. For more information regarding summer housing for incoming students, please contact STI Housing staff.
