2013-2014 Housing Rates





Freshman Housing

All incoming freshman students pay the same rate for on-campus housing regardless of the location or type of room as long as they are assigned to a designated freshman residence hall. Incoming freshman students who choose to move to a building designated as an upperclass building during the academic year will be responsible for the published housing rate for that type of room from the effective date of the move.


All Freshman rooms



Upperclass Housing

All students assigned to upperclass residence halls will be charged the published rate for the assigned hall type and room type. All upperclass students are required to pay the full amount for their assigned space whether or not it is the type of space requested on their Housing Application. Students who move from one hall or room type to a different hall or room type will be charged the published rate for the new space from the effective date of move-in.

2013-2014 Christiana Towers Apartments Rate Statement

The Christiana Towers Housing Agreement offers a 9-month/academic year housing term that does not require students to vacate their room during holiday/vacation breaks or during Winter Session.

In all buildings that remain open for break periods and Winter Session, there are staffing, utility, building maintenance/repair, and custodial costs. The Christiana Towers housing rate reflects the costs associated with occupancy for nine months. Students assigned to the Christiana Towers apartments are not charged the $30 a day housing fee for break periods assessed to students living in traditional halls. These costs are incorporated within the academic year rate.

Proposed rates for 2014-2015 will be discussed with the Student Government Association (SGA) and the Resident Student Association (RSA) in March and rates will be released in late spring.
