Apply for Summer Housing

For Summer 2023: The Summer Housing Application is now open. Please visit to complete the Summer Housing Application. (This link works for students only who have an assigned NDID and NetID from the University.)

The University has a limited amount of residence hall space available for undergraduate and graduate students during the summer. The summer halls for students for 2023 are expected to be open beginning at 5PM on Monday, May 22, 2023, and will close at NOON on Saturday, July 29, 2023.

To qualify for on-campus summer housing, a student must be registered for academic coursework with Summer Session (Office of the Registrar). 

If you are admitted and confirmed as a summer session student and have an active Notre Dame email address, you are considered eligible to apply for housing. Instructions to apply are listed below. All summer housing emails will be sent directly to your Notre Dame email address only.

Faculty and Staff will not have ability to access Home Under the Dome via the link below, it is only for students. The link will give you an error, which confirms it works for students, and not for faculty and staff.

Steps to Create Your Summer Housing Application
You can submit your Summer Housing Application at anytime by logging on to Home Under the Dome and clicking the summer application that applies to you.

Group Summer Housing Requests and Assignments
Several departments and summer programs submit requests during the fall semester to reserve rooms for specific summer programs (REUs, ACE Graduate Programs, Echo, Incoming Fall Students in Summer Matriculation Programs , etc.) that take place on campus during the summer. Please check to see if you are a part of one of these groups that has pre-requested a summer housing assignment for you. You will need to complete a "Group" Summer Housing Application in the portal to complete the housing contract, but won't have to go through other steps. Please wait until you are told by your group contact to go and complete the Summer Housing Application in Home Under the Dome. For this process, you need to be coded as part of the group before filling out an application. This notifies the Office of Residential Life that you are associated with one of these groups. You will need to complete the housing application for purposes of signing the housing contract to live on campus in summer housing. Again, please wait until you are instructed by your group contact to go and complete the Summer Housing Application in Home Under the Dome.

Individual Students Taking Summer Courses, Not Associated with a Group Housing Request/Assignment Block
Students who are individually taking courses (EMNA, MA Theology, Other Degree-Seeking and Continuing Graduate and/or Undergraduate Students, General Student Athletes) are encouraged to complete the summer housing application as soon as it opens. Room preferences are a first-come, first serve for individual students.

Housing Assignment Notification
Housing assignments will be available on Home Under the Dome once complete. Please check back periodically for updated assignment information. If you don't see any housing assignment related information 3 business days prior to your expected arrival to campus, please contact the Office of Residential Life. Please make sure you have submitted a completed housing application. 

Canceling Summer Housing
If your plans change and you need to cancel your summer application and or assignment, please e-mail your request to, and indicate "Summer Housing Application Cancellation" or "Summer Housing Assignment Cancellation" in the subject heading. Fees or penalties may apply for students who cancel their summer session housing.
