Meal Plans
Meal plans do not start before the semester begins. If you arrive early, be prepared to purchase any meals you eat unless you are part of a group or team that will be providing meals.
 
Fees and Penalties
We want to avoid having you pay fees for the following penalties:

• Improper Check-in fee ($50) –- Assessed if a student moves into his/her student residence without being checked-in by a member of the residence life staff.  Please do not move in, even if your roommate is already there.  You will need to check-in first.
 
• Re-cleaning fee ($50) – Assessed if a student residence needs to be re-cleaned in order to get the room back into move-in condition after one student has moved in.  Please keep your roommate’s space clean and free of belongings, so it is ready for him/her to move in.

• Unauthorized guest ($250 + $40/day) – A hefty price to pay to allow someone who is not authorized by the University to stay in your student residence. If you have a friend or family member of the same gender visit, you need to register them in advance with your residence director.
