Summer housing is available for currently matriculated SVA students and 2016 graduates in our Ludlow Residence Hall.

For students already residing in the Ludlow Residence Hall, or will be for the Fall 2016 semester, we will try to keep you in your current room for the summer or place you in your fall room for the summer, to reduce the number of times you have to move.  However, all summer housing placement is subject to availability.  A priority application submission deadline of Friday, April 1, 2016 is set to secure same room placement of current curent room assignments for current residents of the Ludlow Residence.

Summer Housing Registration will open in mid-March (check back for updates).  Registration for SVA summer housing will occur via our online portal.  All SVA students will receive an "All Concerned" email announcement in advance of the opening of summer housing registration with instructions on how to register for summer housing.

Application Deadline: April 15, 2016, 12 pm
