Summer Extension Application
McManus summer extensions are available to all residents with financial accounts in good standing. Students can request an extension from anywhere from one day to two months and will be billed the daily rate for the apartment for each day in residence.
Summer extensions for rising second years begin on Sunday, June 14, 2015 and may extend into their housing contract for 2015 – 2016 (if they plan to stay in McManus).
Summer extensions for graduating students begin on Sunday, June 21, 2015 and may extend until Sunday, August 9, 2015.
Summer Extension Form due date: Wednesday, April 29, 2015 (for priority consideration)
Students who submit summer extension forms after this date will not be guaranteed an extension, due to the need to make other housing assignments.
Parking is available to all residents; however, university regulations do not permit us to process parking applications until our office has received confirmation of current registration and insurance for student vehicles. Please contact Marisa DeRose in Residential Services for more information. Students may email these forms as attachments to Marisa DeRoseo or fax them to Marisa's attention at: (847) 467-2748.
The Parking Application has no due date, though parking will be assigned first-come first-served.
Current McManus parkers are welcome to extend their parking during or through the summer by filling out a Parking Summer Extension Application. Please contact Marisa DeRoseo with any questions.
Graduate Housing Assistants (GHAs)
McManus Graduate Housing Assistants are full-time Kellogg students who run programming, perform on-call duty, and provide other assistance to the building’s residents.
The Graduate Housing Assistant staff (GHAs) work with an incredibly diverse group of residents that have come from all over the world to study a variety of disciplines at Northwestern University. Many of the residents in the graduate housing residence halls are the partners, spouses or children of students. GHAs work to build a strong and unique sense of community for graduate students who choose to live in the McManus, Engelhart & Seabury graduate apartments. GHAs serve as role models and resources within the community and strive to ensure the buildings remain secure and in working order for residents.
The role of the GHA is to serve students by:
- Planning and implementing educational and social programming
- Serve as a campus resource by responding to inquiries
- Ensuring that good customer service is extended during the evenings and on weekends
- Promoting safety and responsibility by monitoring the facilities
- Assisting students during emergency or crises
If you have any questions about this position, please talk to a current GHA, Janet Olsen or Erin Boyce.
GHA applications will be accepted on a rolling basis through 4/15/15.
