As part of the application process, you will have to provide a .edu email address as verification that you are a student at a college or university.


Availability: Cornish Commons is available for housing on a rolling basis during the summer. After we have received your application with arrival and departure dates, we will confirm space availability for those dates. For summer stays, we typically have availability starting the second week of May until through the second week of August. 


Requests for extensions on either end of the summer season are granted on a limited basis due to academic year availability. 


There is no application fee and the contract will follow your application, so there is no risk in applying!


Contract: Once we have received and processed your application, we will send a contract for you to sign. You should expect the contract about five (5) business days after submitting your application. 


Rent Payment: The rent payment for your entire stay is due on arrival before you check-in to your room. We will calculate your rent based on the dates you provide and room type you select in your application, and send an invoice for payment. Plan on providing a payment check to our staff at Cornish Commons. We have a strict no pay, no key policy at check-in. 


If you are unable to pay the entire rent payment upon arrival, please contact us ahead of your arrival to discuss payment terms and provide a guarantor information. 


Roommates: If you select a double room and have a roommate that will also be staying at Cornish Commons, please note your roommate on your application. Once both roommates have applied for housing, we will review and choose to approve your request.


This year, we will also be using the software MyCollegeRoomie. After you apply, you will receive login information to complete your profile. This software allows summer residents to see other residents, their profiles, have conversations, and ultimately select a preferred roommate. If a summer resident decides not to use this platform, they will still be randomly assigned a roommate, but we will take MyCollegeRoomie profile information into account. 


Room Furnishings: Your room comes furnished with a bed frame, extra long twin mattress, chair, desk and dresser. It does not include linens. If you need linens or other room items, there is a Target within walking distance of Cornish Commons.


Rooms without a kitchenette feature a MicroFridge, which is a combination of microwave and mini-fridge.

However, we are centrally located in downtown Seattle with easy access to the SoundTransit system which includes buses, Link light rail, streetcars, and the Washington State Ferry system. If you do want to bring a vehicle, parking in a downtown garage will cost about $200 a month. We have several parking garages near Cornish Commons.
