 All students living in student housing will be charged a $25 per semester Residence Hall Association Programming Fee.  This fee will help support activities and programming for residential students.  

*Shared room rates are based on occupancy of at least two students per room.  If  a student is sharing a room and their roommate moves out, the student remaining will be charged the prorated single room rate for the period they are in the room alone.  If students are in a shared room alone and wish to maintain the shared-room rate, they will have the option of consolidating with other students who also wish to share a room.  If a student wishes to remain alone in a shared room and guarantee they won't have a roommate, they can talk to the Housing Desk about buying out the unoccupied side of the shared room. 

**Apartments are typically reserved for students who have lived on campus at least one year, or who are 21 years of age or older.

***This option is only available if space allows and if the MAC and Templewood Apartments are not full.  This rate guarantees single occupancy in a room meant for two students. 


All rates are effective as of April 4, 2017 for the 2017-2018 academic year and are subject to change. Rates are listed per semester.

All students living in the residence halls are required to have a meal plan. Apartment residents are not required to purchase a meal plan; however participating in one of these plans can be more convenient than grocery shopping and kitchen clean up!

Numerous studies have shown that living on campus truly does contribute to academic success, and helps students feel more connected to their University.
