The housing contract reserves your room and meal plan for the school year, and you can also choose to live on campus during the summer (no summer meal plan available). Suite-style housing is available on campus at a cost of $4,850 for the academic year. Some students choose to live off campus, and costs are similar, depending upon the type of apartment.
