The freshmen housing contract can be found in your admissions packet and a completed copy is due back to us by June 1, 2017.
While it is important for you to read the whole housing contract, there are some important things for you to note, including:
- All freshmen and sophomores are required to live in University housing (unless you have residential life office’s approval to live with parents or a close relative).
- Your residence hall contract is binding for two years, starting upon submission. If you sign other contracts for successive years, each of them is binding for the full academic year.
- Your minimum meal plan requirement is tied to your residence hall. A new dining contract will need to be submitted each year as you progress through your undergraduate career.
- All students are required to have a meal plan, even if they live off campus.
- If we have more students wanting housing than spaces immediately available, you may be assigned to triple or lounge accommodations. You may receive a housing discount for living in such housing.
- The residence halls and dining centers are officially closed during winter recess, though several residence halls will be designated as break housing locations and will remain open on a limited basis. These usually include Susan B. Anthony Halls, Southside and the Maisonettes, and Riverview/Brooks Crossing.
