Residence and Meal Plan Fees

Residence Fees

All residence students must pay room fees, all-inclusive service fee, and a mandatory dining plan (except Paterson Hall residents who do not have a mandatory meal plan). Details about the residence deposit and deadlines can be found on the Residence Application web page. Please note that all residence fees for room, service fee and dining are divided into 8 monthly installments based on costs for the entire year.  Students are asked to pay these monthly installments on the first of every month. International students must pay in full at the start of each semester. For more information please refer to the Fees and Living Expenses web page of the International students website.

*Residence Service Fee

Residence provides an All-Inclusive Package

With the addition of unlimited laundry in residence, you now have a complete all-inclusive package. No need to worry about paying multiple bills for utilities, internet, laundry or television. Your Residence Service Fee applied on the 1st of every month to your residence account, from September to April, in installments of $59.00, (applicable taxes included) takes care of the extras. This fee grants you access to free unlimited laundry, high-speed internet, access to study rooms, game rooms, and large communal living rooms with televisions. Personal routers may be used to boost your own Wi-Fi connection provided they meet University installation requirements.

All rooms, except those in the new residence, also have a landline in the room itself or the apartment. These telephones are NOT equipped with long-distance calling services or voice mail. However, students can purchase a calling card to make long-distance calls from their residence phones or use a call me card.

The terms and conditions with regards to cancelling your residence application are outlined on the residence application information web page. For assistance, please contact Residence, Accommodation & Event Services at or call 819-822-9600 ext. 2685.
