Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Why are my housing fees not prorated?
A. Housing fees are not prorated. As a resident, you are paying for an annual contract price. That annual contract price can be paid in one lump sum, by semester or can be broken down into equal payments for your convenience.
Q. Can I move out when I am done with classes?
A. The Resident’s Housing Agreement specifies the Agreement Period and is different depending on the community you live in. Check your Housing Agreement to see if you have a 10 or 12 month contract.
