Due to COVID-19's impact on campus, May term housing is only offered in select situations. The guidelines below do not apply for May 2020. Please reach out to email@example.com if you have questions about your situation.
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, May 1st for those not participating in graduation, and 8pm on Saturday, May 2nd for those who are.
Reasons for people to stay during May term:
- students enrolled in an academic course (either held on-campus or traveling) or internship experience for at least 2 credits.
- 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 working as a campus work-study for 24 hrs/wk or more. Supervisor approval is required. If on a meal plan, no additional blocks will be provided, but unused flex from spring can rollover to May term.
- students moving directly into summer housing on Sunday, May 24. 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.
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. May term meal plans will be augmented by additional blocks for those staying for a May term course at no addition charge, if a student had a meal plan for the spring semester. For athletes staying into May term who are on a spring meal plan, some additional blocks will be added at no additional charge. Unused flex will rollover for these students as well.
The check-out deadline for all students who staying for May term but are not transitioning to summer housing is 6pm on Friday, May 22.
Summer housing is available for Simpson students, and it will likely be located in the Clinton Apartments. The rate is $12/day. Priority deadline is April 19th, but applications will be received based on space availability until May 22. Students will need to meet a set of criteria to be on campus for Summer 2020 due to COVID-19. More information was mailed to returning students about these details during April 2020.
