Frequently Asked Questions

If you are currently living on campus, the Returning Student Application opens Friday, March 1 within MyResCenter. Room selection will take place during March 2020. If you are not currently living on campus, you will need to log in to MyResCenter and submit the Transfer/New Upperclassman Application which is available now.

Cost is $2700 per person per semester for a four-bedroom unit and $2800 per person per semester for a two-bedroom unit (utilities include with $30/per resident monthly allowance for electricity). The lease is for 12 months which includes fall, spring, and summer semesters. We realize that for fall and spring semesters, many students will use financial aid and scholarships to pay for this but may be unable to use those funds in the summer months. We are able to offer you the option to consolidate these payments into just the fall and spring semesters. This two payment option will be $4050 in the fall and spring semesters with summer being covered in the previous two semesters.
