Housing Deposit

Room selection for 2019-2020:  The room selection process will be in the  Star Rez system.  Students will accept the housing contract, pay the deposit, select roommates, and select a room within the new system.  The student portal in Star Rez will be available to students January 18th.  Details for signing into the system and paying the housing deposit will be posted in January.  Stuents must pay the $600 housing deposit by Monday, March, 4th if they are going to participate in room selection for the 2019-20 academic year.

Each year, undergraduate students that plan to participate in the room selection process are required to pay a housing deposit ($500 for returning students and $300 for entering students).

This deposit is non-refundable for entering students. The housing deposit is non-refundable for returning students if a room is selected. Students who pay the deposit and do not select a room will receive a $500 credit on their account for the fall semester.

When there is a past due balance on a student's account, any deposits made for a future term may be transferred to the student account to cover the outstanding balance.
