Graduate/Law Summer Housing

Campus housing is available on the undergraduate campus of Lewis & Clark College for single students who are registered for a summer class or workshop at the Graduate School of Education and Counseling or Northwestern School of Law. The College does not have accommodations suitable for couples, families, or students under 18 years of age. Rooms must be reserved in advance by completing a Summer Housing Reservation Form.

Students must provide their own bed linen (extra-long twin), towels, mattress pad, blankets, pillow, clothes hangers, study lamp and fan. Cellular coverage on campus has improved with the installation of a cell tower on campus, however there are still some locations around campus where coverage is spotty. There is Ethernet connection for internet access in each student room and wireless service throughout the campus. Detailed information about required system software is available from Information Technology at 503-768-7225 or e-mail

Summer residents may receive and send mail from the campus Mail Room.
