Residence Hall Accommodations
Students registering for summer session classes can live on-campus in the Bill of Rights Hall. This is a traditional residence hall, recently renovated to enhance this high rise environment. A newly renovated kitchen on the 12th floor will prove to be an ideal place to prepare or share a meal and relax with a view overlooking Hofstra’s campus and surrounding community. All rooms in the Bill of Rights Hall have new state-of-the-art furniture to maximize your comfort while residing on campus. The building is staffed 24 hours a day by resident security representatives and RAs are on duty each evening from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m. the following morning. Rooms are furnished with a bed, mattress, desk, desk chair, desk light, and wardrobe/closet. Residence hall accommodations also include access to Hofstra’s computer network, cable, and local telephone access. The Bill of Rights is air-conditioned to ensure your comfort while residing on campus this summer.
Applying for Housing
To apply for on-campus housing, complete the Housing Application found in this Bulletin and return it with proof of payment.

(Roommate requests are considered only when both applications are sent together.) Housing may be available for visiting students.
*All payments must be made in the Office of Student Accounts.
Notification of Housing Assignments
Assignments will be made in early May and will continue until all beds are filled. Students will be contacted by telephone with their summer assignments.
