Academic Year 2020–21 Projected Rates for Residence Hall Contracts 

Update: As of July 6, 2020, due to new density restrictions relating to public health guidelines, all triple and quad rooms have been converted to double rooms, and rates for these converted rooms have changed accordingly. Converted rooms will retain the size and furniture of the triple or quad room, but will house a maximum of two residents. New rates for the converted rooms are reflected in the charts below.

Do you receive financial aid? If so, you’ll get a “Living in a Campus Residence Hall” budget in your financial aid package. Please review your financial aid package and plan accordingly. Learn more about your cost of attendance and financial aid.

Notes about residence hall rates and fees:

  • All residence hall contracts include a $5,300 Blue Meal Plan. You may upgrade your plan if desired. Learn more about meal plan options.
  • Spring-only contract rates are half of the full-year rates (5 installments instead of 10).
