Paying for campus housing is often a concern for both parents and residents. The Summit is committed to providing a variety of options and resources to assist students in meeting their financial obligations.
As of Fall 2015, Queens College students will now have their housing charges appear on their CUNYfirst account. All other residents will continue to pay directly to The Summit management staff.
Queens College Students
Payment may be made in person at the Queens College Bursar Office. You may also mail your payment to Queens College Bursar, 65-30 Kissena Boulevard , Flushing, NY 11367. Checks and money orders should be made out to “Queens College”.
If you are interested in setting up a payment plan, you may log in to CUNYfirst Self Service and go to your Student Center. Go to Finances and select Enroll/Manage Payment Plan.
If you have been approved for Financial Aid, your aid will first be applied to tuition and then applied to housing. You are responsible for paying any remaining balance by deadlines established by Queens College.
Details of applying for Financial Aid can also be found at Queens College Financial Aid Office.
Non-Queens College Students
Payment may be made in person at The Summit Apartments Housing Office. You may also mail your payment to The Summit Apartments Housing Office, 64-80 Kissena Boulevard, Flushing, NY 11367. Checks and money orders should be made out to “Q Student Residences, LLC”
Payment Plans: Students are expected to pay the semester fee, in full, prior to moving in. Students who are unable to do so may sign up for an installment plan which divides the semester into 5 payments made monthly. Students interested in this option need to make arrangements with our office prior to move-in.
Applying for Financial Aid: Many students choose to apply for Financial Aid to cover some or all of their college costs. Students interested in deferring some or all their semester housing costs may do so by providing proof of APPROVED Financial Aid from their campus Financial Aid Office prior to move-in.
Financial Aid Deferment
Students who are eligible for financial aid may be approved to defer some or all of their semester rent if their approved financial aid amount would result in a refund, after paying their Queens College bill.
Students who have an anticipated refund amount can fill out a Financial Aid Deferment form and submit to the Management Office by July 15. Students are only able to defer the amount of the anticipated refund. Any remaining balance would need to be paid prior to the start of each semester.
