Those students who are employed by BVU and/or pursuing academic endeavors during the summer are eligible to reside on-campus. Housing for eligible students is provided in Swope Hall. While every attempt is made to assign summer residents to individual rooms, space is limited and room assignments are effected by the number of eligible applicants. Due to summer conferencing schedules, all students hoping to reside on-campus for a given summer must be able to move to their summer location on the Sunday immediately following graduation. All residence hall and university policies remain in effect during the summer months. Applications for summer residence are made available in Student Affairs following spring break each year. Students are notified via BVUNews when applications are available.
Summer Employment Opportunities
All campus offices remain active during the summer and many offer employment opportunities for students. Students interested in working for a particular office are encouraged to contact that office directly to inquire about possible openings. Summer positions are often posted in BVUNews or through the Human Resources office.
During the summer, people from around the world visit our campus to use our facilities and residence halls for their meetings and other activities. Guests range from junior high students to the elderly and come for reasons including training seminars, athletic and music camps, family gatherings and professional development. Each summer a staff of students is hired as Conference Assistants to serve as hosts to our guests. Conference Assistant applications are available after spring break. Students are notified via BVUNews when applications are available.
Other Summer Services
The library and recreational facilities are available during the summer on a limited basis. Canoes and kayaks are available through Campus Recreation. Supplies available at the information desk during the academic year can also be checked out during the summer.
Summer Housing Application
All students wishing to live on campus during summer should fill out and submit a Summer Housing 2013 Application.
