Other Rates:  In order to accommodate all residence applicants, on occasion, it may be necessary to assign applicants to a Temporary Expanded Space placement.  If this occurs, residents will be charged an Expanded Space rate of $2366 per semester, which is intended to recognize that a student assigned to Temporary Expanded Space will be required to move to a Permanent assignment after Check-in.  A Temporary Expanded Space rate will be charged on a pro-rated basis only for the days the student was assigned to the temporary location.  Standard Residence Rates will apply once the student has been re-assigned.

In addition to the above-noted Fees, the following additional charges will apply:

  1. Residence Laundry Card - A non-refundable $50 charge for a residence laundry card will be charged in the Fall semester. The card is pre-loaded with $50 value for residence laundry machines. West Residence and Graduate Houses are excluded.
