Housing rates listed below are based on planned room occupancy:

  • two persons per room in residence hall double rooms
  • three persons per room in residence hall designated triple rooms *
  • three persons per room in Hope and Horton permanent triples
  • one person per room in Hope and Horton permanent singles
  • three persons per apartment in Welch
