Housing will be in Mead Hall on the Pitzer campus.  Single and double-occupancy rooms will be available.

Currently enrolled students are not able to stay in their spring semester rooms during the summer.  Summer Housing is only located in Mead Hall.

Summer Parking

The Claremont Colleges do not enforce parking permits during the summer months.  Students are welcome to bring cars and park them in the East Mesa Parking Lot during the summer.  Even though there are no parking permits in the summer, we still highly encourage students to register their vehicle with Campus Safety so they have your car information on file in case of any issues.  Simply call Campus Safety to register your vehicle.
