Student Temporary Housing Policy

Shippensburg University temporary housing accommodations are available for short-term or long-term use. Shippensburg University maintains a limited number of housing units available for rent for students on a temporary basis. The units are traditional residence hall rooms. There is a $5 per night fee for any student staying temporarily in housing. Although these accommodations can be made for long term use, it is not meant to be for a lasting period of time and/or permanent.
