Information for the Eastman Student Living Center

The Eastman Student Living Center is available to students in collegiate courses and institutes, and to students age 14 and up enrolled in full-day programs. Please contact the Summer Session office at (585) 274-1074 or 1-844-820-3766 (outside New York State) with additional questions.

Students can reside in the Eastman Student Living Center for a daily rate of $77 for room and meals (please see “Housing & Meals only” for Music Horizons and Summer Jazz Studies). The $77 daily rate includes three (3) meals.

Students must fill out the “Housing / Meals Worksheet” section of the Registration Form in order to reserve a room in the Student Living Center. The Student Living Center is not air-conditioned; this may be a factor in determining your housing needs.

Checkin at the Student Living Center is between noon and 4 p.m.; checkout must be completed by 10 a.m. Extended stays cannot be accommodated; please plan your travel so that you arrive no sooner than the day before your program begins. Students may check out of the dorm on the last day of a program or stay overnight and leave the following morning (be sure to include this final night in your housing worksheet calculations).
