Summer Residential Experience

Welcome to your summer home away from home.


dion family student centerAs a student enrolled in the Accelerated Summer College program, you’ll join us for an orientation session on Sunday, May 22, prior to classes beginning on Monday, May 23. Here, you’ll get to meet other students in the program, learn about various campus services, and be introduced to campus and residence hall policies and procedures. This session is mandatory for all incoming ASC students.

The Residential Experience

Year-round, the St. Mike’s campus is a 24-hour living and learning community where our students get involved, develop lifelong friendships and become better citizens, both on campus and in society.

The Green Mountain Dining Room is open daily and offers three meals a day, with unlimited servings. Einstein Bros. Bagels, located in the student center, is a great place to pick up coffee, a bagel, other snacks or a sandwich. The student center is a great place to access the MakerSpace or find a quiet area to study in.

ASC students reside in suite style housing, located at the center of campus. Featuring suites with eight single bedrooms and a common area with two baths, students can balance alone time in their room with social time in the more communal areas on each floor, like the kitchen and lounges. The entire building is air conditioned, provides wireless access, and has its own laundry facilities.

Our residential life staff members are there to make your campus life safe, comfortable and rewarding. Our staff includes RAs who are current undergraduate students who live on each floor, a graduate student who supervises the entire building, and full-time professionals including our Director and Assistant Deans of Students who have many years of experience working in higher education.
