Housing Deposit & Selection Reminder

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

To participate in Housing Selection for the 2015-16 academic year each student needs to pay a $150 housing deposit to student accounts by March 19. To pay, please go to the student accounts office located on the first floor of Stevens. You will also need to pay with check or cash since they do not accept credit or debit in their office.

Before paying please be aware of the following:

  • Your student account must be paid in full. If on a payment plan, your February payment (or March payment if after March 1) must be received and any amount not covered by your payment plan must be paid.
  • Regardless of who pays the deposit, each student must stop by student accounts. If the deposit is accepted you will receive a Housing Deposit Confirmation slip. This slip is needed as a record of payment.
  • A payment received in any other way won’t be processed as a deposit, but instead will overpay the account or be applied toward the next monthly payment. Student accounts routinely refunds over-payments, so if you get a refund check you are not expecting please stop by to confirm the status of your housing deposit.

Additional details regarding housing selection are posted on the Housing and Residence Life website.

Questions? Contact or stop by the student life office.

Please return dishware to Bon Appetit

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

We have lost massive amounts of plates, glasses, silverware, bowls and coffee cups over the past several months. We would ask that everyone remember that the meal plan is all you care to eat while you are in the dining room and does not allow for food to be carried out when you leave.

If you have any of our dishware in your dorm rooms or offices, we would really appreciate it if you could bring it back to us. There is a cart outside the dish room where you can leave any dishes you may have or that you find laying around on campus. Thank you for helping us out!
