Summer Housing

Whitworth University provides limited on-campus summer housing. There are, however, a few restrictions with regard to this housing:

  • On-campus summer housing is available to currently enrolled Whitworth students only.
  • Students who take advantage of summer housing must be taking summer classes at Whitworth or working for the university as student employees.
  • Summer housing is provided in Cornerstone, which features air-conditioned, two-person rooms with private bathrooms. The facility has a large, stocked kitchen, a couple of public lounges, and washer/dryer facilities.
  • Move-in is determined by when the current Cornerstone residents leave. The earliest move-in date/time would be 10 a.m. the Saturday before graduation, but most students will be allowed to move in beginning on graduation day or the Monday following. Make sure to mention to your RA and RD that you will need a delayed checkout because of this.
  • Cost:
    • $22 per night, or
    • $1,768 if staying for 90 days or more (equivalent to $19.64/day)
  • Housing is granted on a first-come, first-served basis. Unless specified, rooms will be double-occupancy; Whitworth will, however, make every effort to give each resident his or her own room.
  • No housekeeping duties are performed by the university during a student's stay. The university will supply basic housekeeping supplies upon request.
  • Linen service is not provided unless the student pays an additional $10 per night. If a student chooses to assume this extra charge, linens are collected and replaced every three days of his or her stay.

If you would like to enroll in or inquire about summer housing, please contact the Whitworth Housing Office at or 509.777.4533.

General information:

Room Keys: The Cornerstone summer room key must be returned to the housing office at the end of your stay. Failure to return the key will result in a charge of at least $50.

This key is to be used only by the resident to whom it is issued. Residents are not allowed to let anyone else in the building with this key. Use of this key by other persons, either with or without the student's permission, will result in a charge of at least $50 per person, immediate removal of the student from the residence hall, and reclamation of the key issued.

Students are allowed to use this key only between the dates agreed upon by the housing office. If a student needs access to the building earlier or longer than agreed upon, he/she should contact the housing office immediately at or 509.777.4533.  Entering campus buildings at times other than those agreed upon will result in a charge of at least $50, immediate removal from the hall, and reclamation of the key issued.

Access Cards: A Whitworth student's regular I.D. card will allow access to Cornerstone; however, if a student has been issued a different access card, the card must be returned at the end of the stay. Failure to return the card will result in a charge of at least $25.

Work Orders: Students can report work orders and request cleaning supplies, bathroom tissue, etc., from

Checking Out: Each summer resident must complete a checkout with the housing office shortly after he/she has finishes summer class or the on-campus job. Exception: If you are leaving between 9 p.m. and 8 a.m., simply remove all personal possessions from the room, lock the room, and slide the room key and access card (if applicable) under the door of the summer housing RA located in Cornerstone.
