Residence Hall Rates

All residence hall rooms come with the essentials—desk, chair, closet or wardrobe, dresser, twin XL bed (or full bed for upperclass singles in Nelson) and free basic cable tv and wireless internet. From there, you can make your room feel like home! All residence halls include study, community and floor lounges, kitchenettes, vending machines and laundry rooms. So, do your laundry for free on campus, just provide your own detergent and give your family a laundry break when you go home to visit.

All students living on campus pay the housing rate corresponding to their assigned room type and the meal plan they choose. All rates are subject to change.
