• Housing and Meal Plan Rates

    The residence hall rental rates for 2015-16 are listed below.  Please note that all rates are subject to change and that the rates will increase approximately 3% for the 2016-17 school year.  The rates listed are per person, per semester, based on double occupancy (unless otherwise noted). The same rate applies for triple occupancy rooms at Stickney Hall. Most students attend the University two semesters each year (fall and spring).

    The meal plans listed refer to the minimum meal plan required of the particular residence hall and how many meals are provide each week. Meal plan rates usually increase 4% each school year.  Please note that new freshmen are generally assigned to Gilbert Hall.  If a new freshman is assigned to another residence hall, a 14 meal plan will still be required.  

    Although not required, a 19 meal plan is available for $1,270 per semester. For more information about the meal plans, please go here

    *Selden Hall is used for overflow housing for upper class students only. Residents assigned to Selden initially will be charged the Gilbert Hall rental rate ($2,470).  Selden residents will receive  a prorated rebate once they move to their permanent fall room assignment, if the new building's rate is less than Gilbert Hall.  If it the rate is more, the resident will pay the difference in price.  If a resident is required to remain at Selden Hall for the entire fall semester, the student will receive a rebate of $710 to reflect the actual cost of Selden Hall ($1,760). Residents will not be permitted to remain in Selden Hall if vacancies are available in other residence halls on campus.
