Room Rates

Living on campus offers greater support for academic achievement and growth in social maturity and self-reliance.

These rates are the anticipated fees for the 2022-2023 academic year; our final rates will be finalized over the summer and updated below. A $300 refundable cleaning/damage deposit is required for all spaces on campus.
