Summer Housing

Important Information


Check-in for Summer Housing will be consistently held 2:00pm - 5:00pm on the Sunday before the first day of classes (Monday). Since we want to be fully prepared for your arrival, our staff asks that residents plan their campus arrival to meet these check-in expectations. An assignment confirmation and move-in instructions will be e-mailed, via your Longwood address, prior to your campus arrival. Other questions can be directed to housing@longwood.edu.


Three Residential and Commuter Life staff will serve as resources to the Cox Hall community during summer school. They will be responsible for administration of the residence hall and the interpretation of University expectations of residents.


Please note that summer school housing does not begin until Sunday, May 18th, 2014. Campus accommodations are not available for the period between the closing of the spring semester and May 18th, nor is it available between August 3, 2014 and the opening of school for the fall semester. Storage is not available during these periods of time.

Driving Directions

Residents may park in the Cox Lot, which located directly behind Cox Hall, located off Griffin Blvd. This parking lot will be shared by residential and commuter students during the summer months.


If an enrolled student had a valid decal in Spring 2014, it covers the summer sessions. Decals will only be needed for purchase by students not having an existing valid decal. However a summer school pass-regardless of class session length is $50.00.

This includes $101 each week in Bonus Dollars that can be used to purchase meals at the Dorill Dining Hall, Chick-fil-a, and Java City.  Any unused bonus dollars will roll over week to week during summer session, but do not roll over to the Fall semester.  Any unused bonus dollars at the conclusion of the student's accommodation dates will be forfeited by the student.

At the Dining Hall, students will pay the door price in Bonus Dollars ($6 Breakfast, $8 Lunch, and $8 Dinner) and it will still be all you care to eat inside.  At Chick-fil-a and Java City students will be charged ala carte in bonus dollars.
