Queens College was founded in 1937. Often referred to as - the jewel of the CUNY system, Queens College is a place of contrasts: An urban school in a suburban setting, where a large and diverse student body receives personalized attention.

There are answers to the most frequently asked questions, but should you need more information, you can email The Summit at qc.thesummit.housing@qc.cuny.edu. A single room in an apartment is $6,900. A double room in an apartment is $5265. NSE students may apply for either room type, but assignment is based on availability and room type cannot be guaranteed. The Summit offers contracts on a first come, first serve basis. Residence hall PRIORITY is given to students who will exchange for a full academic year. Single term (fall or spring) contracts are limited, but not guaranteed. Applications are considered on a rolling basis. Full-year contracts are given priority. The availability of a single term contract for the fall will be determined by mid-summer. Applications for spring only housing may be submitted in October. Please be aware that if you apply for housing at The Summit for a full academic year, you will sign A FULL ACADEMIC-YEAR CONTRACT AND WILL BE FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYING FOR BOTH SEMESTERS REGARDLESS OF A LATER DECISION TO WITHDRAW FROM ALL OR PART OF ON-CAMPUS HOUSING FOR THE ACADEMIC YEAR. A NON-REFUNDABLE $2,500 PAYMENT FOR THE SPRING TERM OF YOUR ACADEMIC YEAR CONTRACT WILL BE DUE BY MID-JULY. If you are interested in living at The Summit for the Fall semester only, you may still apply but will be placed on a waiting list. You will not find out until the end of July if a room is available for the Fall semester. If you are interested in housing for the Spring semester only, you may apply in October. If a room is available, we will offer a Spring semester housing contract. Queens does not offer a service to assist you in identifying off-campus housing. For off-campus housing, you may want to contact a realtor in the area or check internet sites such as jumpoffcampus.com.
