Who is eligible to live on campus for the summer?

On-campus summer housing is limited to students employed during the summer conducting research supervised by a Bates faculty member, working for an administrative office of the College, participating in a Bates funded Purposeful Work internship, or participating in community work funded by the Harward Center.


Where will we live and what are the housing regulations?

All students will be housed in Page Hall. Please review the Summer Housing regulations carefully before submitting your application: Summer Housing Regulations 2018


How will I be charged for rent?

Students living in campus housing will be charged rent at a weekly rate. This will be done through the payroll office. The number of weeks you are living on campus for will be added calculated and divided through all pay periods.  Graduated seniors will need to pay their stay in advance. For more information, please review the Summer Housing Regulations 2018


 When is the application due and when will we select rooms for the summer?

All applications that are received before noon on May 16th will receive a time slot for an online selection time between 5pm and 7pm on Thursday, May 17th. More information will be emailed to applicants in the afternoon of May 16th.


What are meal plan options in the summer?

Summer housing is traditionally offered in a building with a full kitchen; Dining Services will also provide meal plan packages.  There are several packages to choose from with pricing to be determined:

  • 120 Meals
  • 85 Meals
  • 50 Meals

All Packages are non-refundable.  Individuals will not be reimbursed for uneaten meals.  Meal Plans cannot be used in the Den. All students choosing to purchase a summer Meal Plan are governed by the same dining regulations that are in effect during the academic year – specifically, no food is to be removed from Dining services.


How do I purchase a meal plan for the summer?

Payment must be made in full and payment is to be made directly to Dining Services.  Payment arrangements can be made by contacting Cheryl Lacey, Director of Dining Services. Meal Plans cannot be changed once bought, though an additional plan can be added.  Access to Commons will be gained through the use of the Student I.D. Card.  Should you have issue with access, contact David Perreault, Board Plan Manager, at ext. 8237.
