Housing Deposits

Students who intend to participate in on-campus housing for the upcoming academic year should reserve a space on campus via a $250 non-refundable Housing Deposit.

This deposit is a prepayment and will be credited to your Fall bill. The deposit will be forfeited if you withdraw from housing. Please be aware that the Housing License Agreement is for the full year.

If you do not pay the deposit prior to the room selection deadline, you will not be placed into housing. You will not receive a bill for this deposit.
