We have a diverse selection of housing options available for students. Find the one that’s right for you.

Housing options available on a first deposited, first-served basis. Each student assigned to University approved housing will be charged a $1,000 Housing Damage Deposit (HDD), which will be due, with rent, at the beginning of the term. At the end of the term, after students move out and turn in their keys, and after inspections have been completed of all vacated units (Please allow 6-8 weeks post move out) HDDs will be credited back to the student’s housing account. Any resultant credit balance will then be eligible for refund.
