Residence Hall Policies
In order to be admitted to the residence halls, a student must pay a $50.00 room reservation fee ($20.00 processing fee, $30.00 key fee). The room reservation fee is an annual, non-refundable fee for ALL students living in College housing.
Assignment Confirmation Card
A Housing Assignment Confirmation Card is issued to each student in July upon submission of a housing application and payment of the reservation fee. During arrival for semester beginnings and official registration, the card should be presented to the Residential Hall Coordinator for actual occupancy status to be activated.
Each student must sign a Housing Agreement in regards to his/her responsibility for the contents and conduct within the room. The Contract process also includes an Inventory Form that each resident must sign during the initial check-in process. Students will be held completely liable for all furniture and room contents indicated on the form.
Residence Hall Withdrawal Process
Students must officially withdraw from a residence hall in order to avoid room and board charges by the Collegeís Business Office. A Residence Hall Withdrawal Form must be completed by the resident, and signed and dated by a Residential Hall Coordinator.
Upperclassmen may select rooms and roommates during a special spring early reservation process. This process is coordinated through the Departmentís main office and payment of the annual room reservation fee is made to the Business Office by way of the Collegeís Cashier. The student must state his/her preference for room and roommate.
Housing assignments are generally made through a random process. However, new students who will be living on campus for the first time may make specific roommate requests on the housing application. Every effort will be made to honor room and roommate preferences. Both applications and reservation fees must be processed in order to honor a special request. July 1st is the priority deadline for housing applications and roommate preferences. Any special requests received after July 1st are less likely to be honored. Annual housing assignments are made on a first come, first serve basis until all bedding space is allocated.
Students must request room changes in writing during each semesterís Room Adjustment and Consolidation Period. All room changes must be approved by the Residence Hall Coordinator and coordinated through the departmental main office.
