2021–2022 Residence Hall Room Rates


  • The standard double rate for 2021–2022 is $4,720 per semester. Students residing in a non-renovated building (Adirondack) will receive a small discount.
  • If a double is occupied by one student, we refer to this as a double-as-single. Double-as-single rooms are only available when all students can be accommodated in doubles.
  • If a double is occupied by three students, we refer to this as a triple room*. Note that in a triple, all furnishings can be “tripled” with the exception of the closets because they are built-in. Each student will have 1/3 of the closet space unless all students in a room agree on other arrangements.
  • Vacation housing applies to any night before or after occupancy dates defined in the official academic calendar. Students must contact Campus Housing and Community Living to determine if vacation housing is available.

*Triple Room

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 Campus Housing and Community Living Office will communicate that date to students. 

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