University Housing Costs

Keep in mind that your selection of room type (single, double, or triple) and meal plan affects how much you or your parents must pay with your own funds or borrow.

In determining your financial aid eligibility, we use a standard cost of attendance for living in university housing. The standard cost assumes that you will be living with at least one roommate for the 9-month academic year. 

Track your housing costs

It is your responsibility to keep track of the amount of financial aid disbursed and applied toward your university housing costs. You must pay any remaining costs when due.

Each of your electronic billing statements will have a summary of the housing payments due during the semester.

Log in to your Online Student Account to check your billing statements and your transaction history of charges and payments, including payments made using your financial aid.
