2017-2018 Academic Year Room and Board Rates

The academic year consist of  two semesters (fall semester and spring semester). Rates below are expressed as per semester rates.  Rates for summer and winter sessions are listed separately as they are not part of the fall/spring semester rates.

The Residential Telecommunications Fee (wireless internet/data/cable) of $197/semester/person has been listed as part of the housing package in the past.  For more transparency and to better explain charges, this will be listed separately from housing on the university account.

The Living Learning Community fee is $100 annually and is charged to residents in the living learning community areas of Ambler Johnston (Honors Residential Community/Residential College at West AJ),  Harper (Mozaiko),  Lee (Curie, DaVinci, Galileo, and Hypatia Communities), Payne (Residential Leadership Community), and Pritchard (SERVE, Thrive, Studio72, and Innovate Communities).   This fee supports the cost of operating the program and events associated with the living learning community spaces.

The multiple-occupancy rate means cost per resident for shared residency of 2 or more residents per bedroom. Single-occupancy rooms are very limited in undergraduate housing.
