Temporary Summer Housing

(June 24, 2018 - September 2, 2018)

Seattle University offers temporary short-term housing in the summer for graduate and law students who do not have a place to stay while they arrange for long-term housing. This is to assist students in finding a place to stay and is cheaper than staying in a hotel while you search for an apartment. More information about options and cost is available.

Seattle University has also partnered with Places4Students, a company that specializes in providing Off-Campus Housing solutions for post-secondary students. This service is free for all students to use as an effective method of finding a place to live off-campus or finding a roommate. Students need not register to search listings. Landlords can list properties at very competitive rates (less than most other mediums of advertising).
