Summer School Housing 2018

Housing is available for undergraduate students enrolled for classes at SMU during the summer. Effective April 30, the summer school building will be McElvaney Commons. Students currently living in a residential community on-campus may complete the summer housing application using the housing portal. Students not living on-campus in the Spring may request an application by email or in our offices in Boaz.
