Room Contract Types
This Housing Contract option is the most often selected by our students, as they do not anticipate a need for campus housing during all academic break periods.
This Housing Contract option will be attractive to 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, and the contract date ends with Spring hall closing, the last day of finals week. Switching to a 10-month contract will cost students an additional $910 per year ($455 per semester).
This Housing Contract option will be attractive to 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 $3306 per year ($1653 per semester).
PLEASE NOTE THAT 12-MONTH CONTRACTS RUN FROM MID-AUGUST TO MID-AUGUST! This will allow us to clean and prepare for Fall arrivals. If you do not have a fall housing assignment as of the date to transition to fall assignments, you would be required to vacate campus housing as of that time.
