Cost Per Academic Year

Saint Elizabeth University maintains two residence halls for its full-time undergraduate students. The food and housing contract is in effect from the opening day of the academic year to the last day of exams in the spring semester, exclusive of University vacations when the residence halls close, as stated in the SEU calendar. Additional information regarding residence hall policies and procedures can be found in the Student Handbook.

Students are not permitted to remain in residence during vacation periods, including Thanksgiving break, fall semester recess, Spring break, Easter recess, and summer recess. The only approved exceptions to this policy are: international students, residence life office assistants, student athletes (Christmas recess only), student teachers (spring recess only), students with department approved internships for credit (spring break and summer recess only) and students enrolled in classes at Saint Elizabeth University (summer recess only).

Students approved to remain in the residence halls during fall recess who not have an exception will be assigned a room by the Director of Residence Life and pay a fee of $150 per week for room only. Payment must be remitted to the Bursar Office one week before the student plans to room. Students approved to remain in the residence halls during summer recess will be assigned a room by the Director of Residence Life and pay a fee of $391 per week for room/board. There is a period of two designated weeks during the summer months when no student may reside on campus.

Housing Deposits

All resident students are required to pay a $200 non-refundable and non-transferable deposit to secure a room for the next Fall semester. This payment will be required each year the student is in residence on the campus. Payments can be made by check or money order.

This $200 payment will be credited to the student's account as a room deposit paid in advance when the Fall invoices are sent in July. The deposit will not be returned to the student should housing be terminated for any reason.

The only exemptions to this policy are the Harney Scholarships, fully funded International Scholarships and the EOF recipients. These students will be required to sign a separate housing contract in lieu of the room deposit.
