Compare Costs

Most new residents tell us they are excited about living here because they love being right on campus and they like the idea of living with other students. But if you’re wondering—or if the person footing the bill wants to know—the cost is competitive, too.

Amenities include 24-hour front desk service, storage areas, laundry room on every floor and common areas for socializing and studying. Plus, there is no extra charge for heat, electricity, water or high-speed Internet. Residence Life fees support activities and programming for all residents.
