Housing Deposit

A deposit is required for every student living with HFS. Students applying for 9-month housing and 12-month apartments will be asked to make the deposit payment of $500 in order to submit the application, unless the student has been approved for deposit deferment (see below). Students applying for family housing will pay a deposit of $300 after an apartment has been assigned and before moving in. Family housing applicants are not required to pay the deposit until they are assigned.

Deposit Deferment

Students who are approved for a Pell Grant or State Need Grant do not have to pay a deposit to submit an application for 9-month housing or 12-month apartments. The deposit must still be paid, but it will be charged in two installments of $250, to be paid along with the quarterly housing charges for the first two quarters of occupancy.
