Summer & May Housing

During May term at Simpson, only students meeting one of the following reasons are allowed to stay on campus.  For those not staying for May term, check-out deadlines are 12pm (noon) on Friday, April 30 for those not participating in graduation, and 8pm on Saturday, May 1st for those who are.

Reasons for people to stay during May term:

  1.  students enrolled in an academic course or internship experience for at least 2 credits.  Students who are enrolled for an on-campus May term course will automatically be assigned a May term meal plan based on their spring meal plan.   Unused flex money from spring semester will rollover into May term.  For students staying on campus for May term courses but not staying for summer housing, the housing check-out deadline is 6pm on Friday, May 21.
  2.  students engaged in spring athletics, with approval from a coach.  If a student-athlete does not have another reason to stay, they will be asked to move out the day after the end of their season.  Students staying for only this reason will not have a meal plan added to their account, and their meal plans will end Thursday, April 29th.
  3. students working as a campus work-study for 24 hrs/wk or more.  Supervisor approval is required.  Students staying for only this reason will not have a meal plan added to their account, and their meal plans will end Thursday, April 29th.
  4. students moving directly into summer housing on Sunday, May 23.  If no other reasons to stay for May term exist, please note summer housing billing will begin when you would normally check-out of spring housing.  Students staying for only this reason will not have a meal plan added to their account, and their meal plans will end Thursday, April 29th.

For students who live on-campus during the academic year, there is no additional charge for room during May term for above reasons 1-3.  For students who are assigned and charged for May term meal plans, those plans will be augmented by additional blocks and flex.  If a student is not required to have a May term meal plan, but would like one, they can contact Adrian McNew at 515-961-1592 or adrian.mcnew@simpson.edu.

The check-out deadline for all students who staying for May term but are not transitioning to summer housing is 6pm on Friday, May 21.
