University Housing Costs

Be aware of the costs for the choices you make. Your selection of room type (single, double, or triple) and meal plan may affect how much you or your parents must borrow or pay for, using your own funds.

In determining your financial aid eligibility, we use a standard cost of attendance for living in university housing. The standard cost reflects a standard allowance for 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 and to pay remaining costs when due.

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

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