With the entire Howard community's well-being serving as our guiding principle and top priority, we are working diligently to return more students to our campus this Summer and Fall. At this time, first and second year students can begin the 2021-2022 housing application process HERE. We thank you for you continued patience and look forward to welcoming you back to campus soon.

Summer 2021 Session II Housing Interest Form

Howard University will have a Summer 2021 pilot that will prepare us for a more robust implementation for Fall 2021. Continuing students interested in returning to campus for Summer Session II courses must complete the form found HERE.

Please view our list of items that you should bring with you to campus. Items you should not bring are listed after.
