Student Summer Housing Overview

We are thrilled you are planning on joining us on campus this summer!  Whether you are taking a class, doing research or working to support our campus, Skidmore and Saratoga Springs are the places to be for an unforgettable summer!

We anticipate that all COVID-19 mitigation protocols, including masking and social distancing, will remain in place on campus during summer 2021. Please know that, given the ongoing impact of COVID-19 as well as uncertainties related to infection levels, vaccine availability and local, state and national requirements, Skidmore’s summer planning related to both academic courses and campus housing may change.
