Housing and Dining Rates for 2019-2020

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, 2019 (October 15, 2019 for Spring Only 2019 contracts). Cancellations received between June 16, 2019 and July 31, 2019 will forfeit the $200 initial payment in addition to the security deposit (October 16, 2019 and December 1, 2019 for Spring Only 2019 contracts).  A cancellation fee applies for all cancellations after July 31, 2019 (after December 1, 2019 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.

Note: 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.

Emergency housing after the Argenta Hall explosion: Ongoing updates

The University came to an agreement with CCR Newco, LLC, a subsidiary of Eldorado Resorts, to secure the 1,300 student beds needed after the July 5 explosion, which left Argenta and Nye Halls uninhabitable. University Residential Life and Housing will occupy the newly-renovated, non-gaming West Tower ("Sky Tower") of Circus Circus Reno, ensuring an academic and community environment that promotes student success. Learn more about the agreement.
