  • Summer housing costs $11.11 per day or a total of $1,300 for the entire summer term, May 5–August 29, 2018. (That's less than $350 per month for a furnished room that includes utilities!!! How could you not live here?!)

All furnishings must remain in the room.

If you have a vehicle on campus during summer you will need a permit different than the permit you were able to use during the spring semester. Visit the Campus Safety Office by Café Biola to find out more information.


If you are commuting to campus via bicycle over the summer, your bicycle must be registered with Campus Safety (free service) and may not be kept on campus overnight or on the weekends. Bicycles found on campus during these times or that do not have a permit will be collected by Campus Safety and kept for a period of 90 days before they are donated to a local charity. Contact Campus Safety for instructions and more information.


Biola does not offer storage for student belongings over summer break, but there are several local storage facilities that may offer discounts to Biola students.

Some of these providers include the following:

Some students may choose to rent a storage space together to share the cost.

Biola does not endorse any of these organizations, and students are advised to do business with them at their own risk.
