In order to grow the St. Scholastica summer campus community, Residential Life has dropped the price for summer housing. Previously, it cost a student $1000 to live on campus for the summer. This summer, if a student chooses to live on campus the cost will be $830, or $10 per day with the student living in Cedar or the Bricks with three roommates.

The reasoning behind this decision was to provide a safe and comfortable space for students to remain in Duluth during the summer. Students are also able to buy out complete rooms or apartments with a change in the price. It boils down to $10 per bedspace per day from May 15 to Aug. 5. In addition, students who live on campus in the summer and in the fall will be able to live in the apartments for free from Aug. 5 until the beginning of the school year.

“Last summer we had approximately 48 students live on campus over the summer,” said Brittany Heilmann, ResLife Apartments coordinator, “it cost about $1,000.”

Heilman, stated that few applications have been filled out, with housing contracts open until May 1.
