Residence Life

Housing Reservation Fee 

In order to participate in housing selection you must pay the Bursar's office a $200 housing reservation fee. No receipt is needed.

When do I pay the reservation fee?:

Students can begin paying the reservation fee on January 2. It is advisable that you pay your deposit as soon as possible, but you must pay it at least 24 hours before your sign up time. Students renewing leases in university apartments are not required to pay the fee again. 

How can I pay the reservation fee?:

  • Online (Beginning January 2)
  • Take check or credit card to the bursar's office: Alamance 111 

Once the housing reservation fee payment is made it takes roughly 24 hours to process. Students will need to plan accordingly when applying for housing. 

INCOMING FRESHMEN SHOULD NOT PAY THE $200 HOUSING DEPOSIT (housing reservation fee). This fee is for currently enrolled students participating in returning student housing selection in February and March. The $500 enrollment deposit covers your housing fee for your freshmen year. If you have questions regarding what fees you owe, please speak with your admissions counselor. Housing information will be mailed in April.

What becomes of the reservation fee?:

If you are assigned a residence hall space your reservation fee will be applied to your fall tuition bill.

If you are assigned an apartment space your reservation fee will be transferred to a security deposit account and will be held until you move out of the apartment. 

What if I don't receive a housing assignment?  

To receive a refund, come to residence life (Global C 103) and complete a housing reservation fee refund form.

Once you have completed the form, please allow 2-3 weeks for residence life and the bursar's office to process. Your housing reservation fee will be refunded to you in the same manner that it was paid. For instance, if you paid with a credit card, the money will be refunded to your credit card account.
