10- and 12-Month Contracts
What are they?
We are aware that sometimes students want or need to stay on campus for break periods. If students choose to stay, we do offer a discount on break housing.
The 10-Month Contract is for those students who prefer or need campus housing during all academic break periods except the summer break. Students choosing 10 month housing may remain in an assigned room through Thanksgiving, Winter Break, and Spring Break. The 10 month rate includes a 40% discount on the cost of the Break periods. Switching to a 10-month contract will cost students an additional $826 per year ($413 per semester) for the 2019-2020 academic year.
The 12-Month Contract is for those students who prefer or need campus housing during all academic break periods including the Summer Break. Students choosing 12 month housing may remain in an assigned room through Thanksgiving, Winter Break Intersession, and Spring Break. ***Summer Break periods will find students moving to the one hall on campus that houses summer students.*** The 12 month rate includes a 40% discount on the cost of the Thanksgiving Break, Intersession, Spring Break, and Summer Break. Switching to a 12-month contract will cost students an additional $2988 per year ($1494 per semester) for the 2019-2020 academic year.
PLEASE NOTE THAT 12-MONTH CONTRACTS RUN FROM MID-AUGUST TO MID-AUGUST! This will allow us to clean and prepare for Fall arrivals.
