Accommodations & Services

Where You'll Be Staying

All AU summer students will once again be housed on South Campus, in Anderson Hall.  All amenities AU students enjoy during the academic year remain in place during the summer months, including internet connectivity and cable television, all at no extra charge. One of the residence hall front desks on South Campus will be staffed on a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week basis for security and you will continue to use your AU student ID for access at the front door. A full-time Resident Director will be available to resolve special problems and offer assistance.

Room Types

Most AU summer students will stay in double occupancy rooms on South Campus during their stay.  Single requests will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis (based on the date the application is received at the Housing and Dining Programs office). Single requests that we cannot honor are automatically defaulted to your second choice of accommodations.

We make every effort to accommodate all roommate requests, but cannot guarantee requested assignments. Roommate pairs are strongly encouraged to submit their applications as early as possible and at the same time to ensure pairing.

Mail Service

Mail Services continues during the summer months for both AU students and visiting interns.  Detailed information on summer mail services will be available to all on campus residents at your building desk in May.

Recreation and Athletic Facilities

All summer students enjoy regular academic year access to most of American University's many athletic and recreation facilities. A student ID is required for admission to the Jacobs Fitness Center and the Sports Center. Some facilities are used for sports camps during the summer months, but usually only during the day.
