On-Campus Housing (Students without Dependents)
The Residential Life Office is located in Iba Hall. Please contact the personnel in that office for information and room reservation. Freshman students under 21 years of age are required to live in the residence halls. To request an exception to this policy, contact the Residential Life office.
Signing a Student Housing Contract
In order to live in a residence hall, students are required to sign a contract. Please read the contract and accompanying materials very carefully. Since the contract is a legally binding document, it contains the terms and conditions of which you are expected to honor. Please note that the contract is for the entire academic year, fall and spring semesters. Late arrivals are obligated to occupy a residential hall room till the following May unless you withdraw from the university. This means that once you sign a contract, you are expected to occupy a residence hall room until the following May, unless you withdraw from the university. Room and board payments are due four times each semester. Please remember that room and board payments do not include the "break" periods (when classes are not in session).
Continuous Housing During University Vacation Breaks
All housing will be open during the fall, winter, and spring university breaks.
Food Service in the Residence Halls
If you are a freshman, you are required to purchase meal plans worth a minimum of $900. All other students, excluding freshmen, interested in purchasing meal plans may buy any amount between $750 and $1500. The plan you choose allows you that amount in dollars of meals each semester when classes are in session. All plans include service on weekends, excluding Sunday evening. Upper classmen (sophomore and above) also have the option to take the “room only” plan - no food service. For more details contact the Residential Life dinning services. Students living in residence halls who require special diets for specific medical needs such as diabetes, ulcers, and liver problems should contact a dietician in the Student Health Center

On Campus Housing (Married Students or Single Parents with Children)
Students, who are accompanied by their families, may apply to live in the University Apartments. The types of apartments vary, as do the rents. Utilities are included in the rent payment. Contracts are for one year and tenants must renew their contracts four to six weeks before the end of the semester.
To be eligible for University Apartments, at least one spouse must be a full time student during the academic year. To apply for an apartment, file an application with a deposit at the University Apartments office, 120 Brumley Apartments. The applicant's name is placed on a waiting list until an apartment is available. It is wise to apply early, as space may be limited. The first month's rent is due when the apartment is assigned to the tenant.
University policy maintains that persons of the opposite sex may not share the same apartment unless they are married. Thus, University Apartments personnel will ask to see your marriage certificate if your spouse lives with you. If you did not have a civil ceremony, a letter from the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in your country recognizing the marriage may be required.
Year Round Housing
Iba Hall, Patchin and Stout Hall are open 12 months a year. Single graduate students, upper classmen, and students at least 21 years of age may live in Iba Hall or in University Apartments depending on availability. Some University Apartments are made available to single graduate students or undergraduates who are juniors or seniors. Families have first preference.
