More Information about Rates

  • A $25 per semester Residence Hall Association Programming Fee will be applied with each assignment. This fee will help support programming for residential students.
  • Apartments are typically reserved for students who have lived on campus at least one year or are 21 years of age or older.
  • 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!
