AMENITIES

Residence Halls
Residence hall students must select a meal plan, which is included in the total cost for room and board.

$8,576 per student for fall and winter semester
$2,696 per student for summer semester

Single-room rate (when space permits)
$9,324 per student for fall and winter semester
$2,910 per student for summer semester

*Please note: There will be a cost differential between the rates for existing residence halls and the rates for the new residence hall which is scheduled to open in the fall of 2014; you can assume an increase of approximately 7% above existing rates for freshman suites in the new hall, and an increase of approximately 10.5% above existing rates for the upperclassman suites. Official rates for the 2014/15 year will be approved by the Board of Directors in April 2014, and will be updated here at that time.
