MCPHS students who are enrolled in in-person summer classes or in-person clinical/rotations may elect to live on campus for summer sessions I and/or II. All housing for summer 2023 will be in Matricaria Hall. Please read the information below for all details.

Complete a Summer Housing Application

The Summer Housing Application will be available early in the Spring semester to coincide with summer class registration. Regardless of their program, all students must complete the application to request housing for the summer. The Office of Residence Life does not automatically assign students to housing based on academic programs. Students will be notified of their summer housing assignment in mid-April via their MCPHS student email address.

Summer Housing Applications are open on the Residence Life Portal. Priority deadline is Thursday, March 30, 2023; Final deadline to request summer housing is April 15, 2023.
