Housing and dining rates

An initial payment of $325 ($200, plus a $125 deposit) is due when you submit your License Agreement Signature Form or License Agreement Web Form. In addition to the initial payment a second payment of $175 is due by June 15th. The $125 deposit is refundable upon completion of the License Agreement (less any damage, lost key, or other charges) but is forfeited if the License Agreement is canceled at any time.

The $200 initial payment and $175 second payment are applied to the student's housing charges and are only refundable if the student cancels their License Agreement before June 15, 2020 (October 15, 2020 for Spring Only 2021 contracts). Cancellations received between June 16 and July 31, 2020 will forfeit the $200 initial payment in addition to the security deposit (October 16 and December 1, 2020 for Spring Only 2021 contracts).  A cancellation fee applies for all cancellations after July 31, 2020 (after December 1, 2020 for Spring Only). The remaining balance of your room charge and the full amount of your meal plan charge will be due when tuition and all other fees are due in August. Please refer to the CHARGES/REFUNDS section of the License Agreement for more details.

Failure to pay the amount on or before the due date will result in action by the University including, but not limited to, eviction, exclusion from meals, academic holds, payment due in full, and/or late fees.

University policy requires that each semester's room and board fees, along with other University charges will be deducted from financial aid or scholarships. A portion of the student fees will be used to purchase food and beverages in support of student programs.

Meal plans

Each plan provides a number of weekly meals per week and FoodBucks to allow students convenience and flexibility with their plan.

We also offer a community meal plan for non-residents

Weekly meals usage allows:

  • Unlimited use (up to the allotted meals per week) for the meal plan holder at The Den
  • Guests Swipes


Each meal plan includes a designated amount of a declining balance credit called FoodBucks. FoodBucks can be used at any dining location on campus. When making a food purchase, simply present your WolfCard to the cashier and let them know you would like to pay with FoodBucks. The amount of your purchase is then deducted from your FoodBucks balance.

Meal plan changes

You are allowed one meal plan change during the first three weeks of each semester. To request a meal plan change, please visit your online Housing Profile and complete the Meal Plan Change Academic Year Application. 

We have heard the campus community’s feedback, and this year we have better aligned the meal plans with what our students are looking for. Students are able to better utilize their meal plans in 20 different dining spots located all across campus. Whether swiping into our dining hall, using the meal trade program or paying with FoodBucks, students have the versatility and portability of eating anywhere on campus for any meal. Our goal is to ensure our students are full and fueled for academic success.
