Offset Cost Assistance

Financial aid packages are based on the cost of a traditional double room, but we also house students in double, triple, or single rooms arranged in private, suite, or traditional-style rooms.

To allow all residents the opportunity to fully participate in all themed housing choices regardless of their financial status, we offer a discretionary housing fund to offset a portion of the higher room rates in some programmed areas (such as University Heights and Living/Learning). Students who receive need-based assistance and are members of these programs may request offset cost assistance if:

  • They are assigned to a qualifying room that is more expensive than the standard traditional double; and
  • Student Financial Services determines the extra cost to be a financial hardship.

Eligible rooms are private singles, private doubles, suite singles, and traditional singles. Suite doubles are not eligible.

  • The offset cost assistance request form is in myResLife, visible during specifc times of the year only to residents of qualified rooms.
  • Deadline to request is the last day of add/drop each semester.
  • We're happy to offer this opportunity to our residents. Please contact us with questions.
