Room Rates for 2017-2018

Room rates are set by the Board of Trustees. These fees fund the operation and maintenance of the residence halls. All housing fees will appear on the university bill that is sent to students by the Bursar's Office.  The Residential Technology fee is included as part of the Base Room Fee and does not appear as a separate fee.  These fees have been combined to simplify the Bursar bill.

Housing fees do not include a meal plan. All residents are required to have an on-campus meal plan with the exception of Apartment, Graduate, and Family Housing residents. For more information regarding the meal plan options for required students, please visit the University Dining Services website or call 413-545-1362 for information on choosing a meal plan.

Please note the following per semester rates for each room type across campus.
