Frequently Asked Questions About Housing Fees for Housing Students

  1. What are my payment options?

    Residents may choose to pay in full by sending a check to Housing Office on or before Friday, July 19, 2017. The amount owed depends on the room type and meal plan chosen.

    Full Payment
    If making a payment in full, please deduct the initial payment.

    Installments Pay Plan
    Residents may choose to pay their room and board in installments on the first of each of the following months: September, October, November, December, February, March, April, and May. A one-time $40 installment/service fee will be added to the total cost.

    Residents who receive financial aid will need to choose the Installments Pay Plan.

    Note: Financial aid cannot be used for the installment/service fee. The university applies financial aid first to registration fees, second to housing payments, and third to any other outstanding payments. Due to financial aid disbursements, residents are required to select the installment payment plan if receiving financial aid.

    For additional information regarding financial aid, please contact: Financial Aid Office at (562) 985-4641.
