Academic Year 2021–22 Projected Rates for Residence Hall Contracts 

The rates below represent anticipated housing occupancy levels for 2021–22. Occupancy levels are determined based on public health guidance, and include approval for triple rooms in the coming year. If occupancy levels change, it is possible that room rates (as shown below) and financial aid budgets will change as well. 

In our residence halls, we are able to offer triple-occupancy rooms, double-occupancy rooms, and a limited number of single rooms.

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 $5,485 Blue Meal Plan. You may upgrade your plan if desired. Learn more about meal plan options.
  • Students may opt to pay by installment plan (5 fall and 5 spring installments) if desired. 
  • Spring-only contract rates are half of the full-year rates (5 installments instead of 10).

The following fee will appear as a separate line item on student Cal Central accounts:

  • For 2021–22, most residence hall contracts include an “Equipment Fee” of $110 for the use of a MicroChill refrigerator and microwave combination unit in each room.
    • The fee is split among residents in a room, so your Equipment Fee will be lower if you share a room.
    • Blackwell Hall residents will not pay the added fee, as the cost of these appliances were already incorporated into their rates.
    • This fee is included in our Living in a Residence Hall Financial Aid budget.
