On-campus housing is available to participants in the Step Ahead Program consistent with the programs and services offered to other students attending summer sessions. Step Ahead students will be housed with other freshman students who choose to begin their college careers early and will be assigned to housing in South Village (SoVi). Participants should apply for on-campus housing by submitting a Summer Housing Agreement and a $50.00 non-refundable application fee. The rate for Summer Session B 2017 is between $1100 - $1200, based on room type.

Housing for Fall 2017/Spring 2018 is a separate application process that requires an additional application and application fee of $50.00. All students are encouraged to apply for Fall 2017/Spring 2018 housing as early as possible, since space is limited.
