Estimated food costs are an additional $1,000 per semester.  If for any reason a student leaves during a semester, there will be no refund of room fees for that semester. The room charge will be forfeited if a student is dismissed from the residence hall during a semester. Any damages to the room, its contents, or residence hall commons area will be charged to the student’s account upon termination of the residence licensing agreement. Special reduced-occupancy rooms may be available at higher rates.
