How to Get Your Residence Hall Room:
1. After being accepted to BHSU, fill out your Online Housing Application.
2. Follow the link provided after you complete your application to pay your $100 room deposit.
3. Your room assignment will be provided at your New Student Registration session.
A $100 deposit is required to reserve a room. Eighty dollars, of your $100 room deposit, are considered security monies and therefore refundable. Twenty dollars, of your $100 room deposit, are considered processing and administrative fees and are therefore non-refundable.
Security monies will be forfeited if the terms of the contract are not fulfilled or if you fail to turn in keys, have damage, or have an unpaid fine resulting from a Residence Life violation.
For students who never attended BHSU and will not be attending BHSU, the Residence Life Office must be notified in writing, postmarked by July 1 of the current year, to cancel the housing contract or the security monies will be forfeited. For spring semester, forfeiture date is December 1.
Room Costs for Residential Housing
The cost of housing is determined by the type of room you will have. There are six different room types. The most common room type is a Residence Hall double room (Triple rooms in Wenona Cook will have the same price). Other room types include: Residence Hall Single, Residence Hall Double as a Single, Campus Suites Double, Campus Suites Single, and Campus Suites Double as a Single. Please visit the Tuition and Fees page under Housing for specific room prices.
You must complete the Online Housing Application before receiving your room assignment.
The terms of the board and room contract are binding for the full academic school year. For students who are admitted for the spring, the term is spring semester only. Failure to maintain the contract is considered a willful violation of this contract and obligates the student for the full term's rental fees.
Assignments are made for those students who have SIGNED the housing contract and PAID the required deposit, in the order in which they were received. Requests to live with a particular person will depend on available space and if the person you requested returned their contract and deposit the same time as you did.
Fall room assignments will be given to you during your summer NSR Session - the student orientation program required for all new students. Once room assignments have been made, they will not be changed. There is NO GUARANTEE that you will get the roommate or hall that you requested.
