Yes. Dining plans are required for all Resident Students.  

We will be launching a new Dining Service to provide a variety of International Cuisines.  In consultation with a dietitian and chef, the menu will be revamped in the Fall of 2024 to accommodate a more diverse population and dietary needs.  In considering feedback from students, meals that are balanced and better meet dietary and nutritional needs will be provided.  We have worked hard to keep the cost as low as possible while providing optimal quality and variety.

Fall and Spring are one application. You apply for them together on your application and are assigned your room for both Fall and Spring Semesters. 

If you plan to stay only for the Fall Semester, you have that option as well within your Housing application.

When your Resident Agreement expires, you will be required to move off campus. If eligible, you may apply for the next semester or an extended stay during the break between semesters. Otherwise, you will have to follow the check out process, notify your Resident Director and move off campus.
