2015-2016 Housing Rates and Fees

All students assigned to residence halls will be charged the published rate below for the assigned hall and room type. The First-Year housing rates represeents an average between traditional and suite-style rooms.

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 occupancy.

Incoming First-Year students who choose to move to a building designated as an upper-division building during the academic year will be responsible for the published housing rate for that type of room from the effective date of occupancy.

Students occupying Christiana Towers or Executive Apartments are not required to vacate during holiday/vacation breaks.

The annual rates are inclusive of Winter Session, as there is no additional fee for students who are enrolled in a Winter Session course or who have a University-related reason to be on campus and choose to remain in the residence halls.

All rates are approved annually by the Board of Trustees.

See our Building Information 2015-2016 page for more information about which halls will house first-year and upper-division students.

Optional Housing Fees

Residence halls (except Christiana Towers and Executive Apartments) close for three breaks throughout the school year: Thanksgiving Break, December Break and Spring Break. Students may request break housing in all traditional residence halls.

There is a fee to remain in traditional (non-apartment) residence halls during breaks. Staff is not available to manage or monitor partial stays, so they are not permitted. Interim Housing applications are found on the My Housing portal.

Students occupying Christiana Towers or Executive Apartments are not required to vacate during holiday/vacation breaks and are therefor exempt from the following fees.
