Housing is not guaranteed - students will be contacted in late May/early June if we can accommodate them. Graduate and law students can also find alternative living arrangements off campus. Our off campus housing coordinator, Amanda Zamora, can assist students seeking off-campus housing and can be reached at azamora@chapman.edu

Summer 2018 Housing is available in Panther Village for all current undergraduate students.  Incoming first year students and incoming transfer students may also qualify for summer housing if they are taking a summer course and will be a student in the fall.  For inquiries on summer housing, please contact our Housing Assignments Coordinator, Emily Belote, at ebrent@chapman.edu.
