The Housing Office collects an Occupant Fee at the time the Housing Agreement is signed. Rent for the month of move in is pro-rated and paid through Accounting Services by the close of the following business day after signing the Housing Agreement. The Pet Fee, if applicable, is also paid through Accounting Services. Families and single students in private apartments are required to have the utilities transferred into their name within five business days of signing the Housing Agreement. The utility companies may require a deposit.
