2019-2020 Residence Hall Room Rates


  • The standard double rate for 2019-2020 is $4,370 per semester.  Students residing in a non-renovated building (Adirondack, Banks) will receive a $200/semester 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 the Housing & Residence Life Office to determine if vacation housing is available.

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. 24, 2019 Aug. 31, 2019 No Refund
Sept. 1,2019 Sept. 21, 2019 $125
Sept. 22, 2019 Oct. 19, 2019 $250
Oct. 20, 2019 Nov. 16, 2019 $375
Nov. 17, 2019 Dec. 14, 2019 $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.
