How do I apply for housing?

Please visit How to Apply for Housing for information.


What forms of payment are accepted for my $250.00 non-refundable housing deposit?

The $250.00 non-refundable housing deposit must be paid online with a credit card through the MyHousing portal. We currently accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover only.


What is the cancellation policy for the academic year housing contract?

If you have paid your housing deposit and no longer wish to live on campus, you must submit a housing contract cancellation request. Please contact our office of further information.


When can I change my meal plan?

You can change your meal plan for the spring semester December 1st- February 2nd.


What other meal plan options are available to returning residents?

The meal plan options vary based on your chosen residence hall, but returning residents have more options when they select housing in an apartment-style building and choose a room with a kitchen. Students in kitchen rooms may select from a 25-, 40-, or 80-meals per semester plan plus $150 Food Loot; these meal plan options offer significant cost savings. Students residing in rooms that are not equipped with kitchens will maintain a full meal plan with unlimited access to Connecticut Hall, $150 Food Loot, and 2 meal swipes per week for dining elsewhere on campus or may adjust their meal plan to one of the smaller meals-per-week plans. Please visit the Meal Plan page on our website for full details.


How are selection times for rooms chosen?

Usually, room selection times go by how many credits you have. A person with higher credits will be able to choose a room before a person with a lower amount of credits.
