Housing Costs

Undergraduate Room Rates | Mount Ida Campus Room Rates | Additional Fees

Room Rates

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 residents. For more information regarding the meal plan options for required students, please visit UMass Dining Services or call (413) 545-1362 for information on choosing a meal plan.
