Triples*

In situations where all students who are requesting housing cannot be accommodated in double occupancy rooms, emergency triples (i.e., double rooms occupied by three people) may be assigned. Credits for Fall semester triples are applied to Spring invoices for continuing students. The credit will be a maximum of $500. Once there is space on campus to accommodate all students in Double Rooms the Housing and Residence Life Office will communicate that date to students. This date will be used to establish the amount of refund to be credited to students as follows:

 
Begin Date End Date Status
Aug. 25, 2018 Sept. 1, 2018 No Refund
Sept. 2, 2018 Sept. 22, 2018 $125
Sept. 23, 2017 Oct. 20, 2018 $250
Oct. 21, 2018 Nov. 17, 2018 $375
Nov. 18, 2018 Dec. 15, 2018 $500

Students electing to stay in a triple room after the date established by the Housing and Residence Life office will not be eligible for any additional refund.
