Housing Rates

Housing Rates include gas, electricity, garbage pick-up, and Internet service (up to 200 GB/month).

Damage deposits / billing: An advance security or damage deposit is not required. However, you are held responsible for the terms and conditions of your housing contract, which states that you will be charged by Bursar if excessive cleanup is required after you vacate the residence and/or if damages beyond normal wear and tear have occurred.

Billing Cycles:

  • Undergraduate residents: Students are Bursar-billed in August for fall-semester housing, and in December for spring-semester housing.
  • Graduate / professional students holding 12-month housing contracts: Students are Bursar-billed each month. The first month's rent generally appears on the August Bursar bill.
  • Summer housing residents: Full payment is requested at the time of application.
