Frequently Asked Questions



Can fall transfer students live on campus for 2020-2021?

Housing Contracts are not currently available for transfer students for 2020-2021. New transfer students interested in living on campus should apply for housing through the Online Housing System. If we have space available later in the summer, we will offer opportunities to sign housing contracts. Completing an application is not binding. Transfer students should look into off-campus housing options for 2020-2021 and/or contact Off-Campus Life for assistance in finding off-campus housing for 2020-2021.

I only want to live on campus if I can live in a specific building. Should I sign a housing contract?

All of our buildings are great places to live, so we would encourage you to be open minded to wherever you are assigned. However, if you arrive on campus and are interested in a room change, you can submit an Online Room Change Request Form through the Online Housing System. There is a room freeze for the first three weeks of the semester, so room changes will be processed after the freeze ends.

The following halls will be available to transfer students:

  • Grace: Apartments on Grace

How much does it cost to live on campus?

A semester’s room rent for any room type in our residence halls is $2754*. The semester’s room rent for a space in the Apartments on Grace is $3254*. Because students who live on campus are required to have a meal plan, it is important to include that cost in to your budget.

I signed a contract but now I want to live off campus. How do I cancel my contract?

The housing contract is binding for the entirety of the fall and spring semesters and will not be cancelled because a student has changed their mind about living on campus. The contract may only be cancelled within 5 business days after it is signed.
