Summer Housing

**The application process for Summer 2020 housing is now closed. Check back in early January for information on Summer 2021 housing.**

Wake Washington housing is available for any Wake Forest student who will be interning or working in the DC area over the summer. To be considered, you must complete the online application and consent to a student records check. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis as quickly as possible. *Note: preference is given to those who apply as a group of four occupants staying for the full summer term, and each occupant must submit an application.

If your application is accepted, you will receive a lease to sign and return within 72 hours. Upon return of the signed lease, you will receive a link to make your damage deposit and prepaid rent deposit payment via credit card. If housing is full at the time of your application, you will be added to a waitlist. Those waitlisted will be notified on a first-come first-served basis if housing becomes available, keeping in mind the preference for those applying in groups.

Housing Fees

Damage Deposit

A refundable damage deposit of $250 per session will be charged, in addition to Rent. This damage deposit will be refunded after the Session(s) if no damage (ordinary wear and tear excepted) has resulted from your occupancy. If you decide not to utilize our housing, the full damage deposit will be refunded.

Prepaid Rent Deposit

The prepaid rent deposit secures a bed in a 4-person apartment and counts as a partial payment of the total rent for the Session(s). If you notify Wake Washington staff in writing prior to the deadline for the applicable session listed below, you will receive a 50% refund of the prepaid rent deposit. After the applicable deadline, there will be no refunds of prepaid rent deposits in connection with a cancellation.

Housing Session I May 9, 2020 – June 27, 2020 $2,000 $1,000 $250 April 1, 2020

Subtenant’s prepaid rent deposit will be applied against the rent due for the Summer Session(s) for which the deposit secures the Subtenant a bed, and upon or in advance of arrival, the balance of the total rent due for the Session(s) is to be paid no later than May 1. No amount of rent, including any amount of the prepaid rent deposit, paid for the Session(s) is thereafter refundable to the Subtenant, regardless of the reason for the Subtenant’s vacating of the Premises or withdrawal from the Session(s).
