Before the room assignment process is initiated, receipt of both the residence hall application and the room deposit are required. Prior to moving in, students must have been accepted for the session in question and be financially cleared.

University Medical Specialties (UMS) charges the insurance company for any coverage applicable to the services provided to residence hall students, thus students should take their insurance information with them when utilizing UMS services. UMS waives any copay or deductible (for the student/family) for the limited health care provided.  Note:  Lamson and Meier Halls will close at 9am on Wednesday morning following the end of Fall Semester and will reopen at 9am on Wednesday morning before the beginning of Spring semester.  Residents needed housing during the closure time should speak with a residence hall dean. 

Residence Hall Room Deposit Payment
The room deposit is $250, payable by each resident prior to room assignment. Assignments are made on a first-come first-served basis. For priority room assignment, submit your application and deposit by August 1 for fall term, December 1 for spring term, and May 1 for summer terms. If a deposit is received after those dates, expect to be assigned to temporary housing.

Residence Hall Room Deposit Refund
Room deposits are refunded if you do not move into the residence hall and cancel your application by August 1 for fall term, December 1 for spring term, and May 1 for summer term. Cancellation must be made through the residence hall housing office. Students will receive room assignment notification during the month of July for the upcoming fall semester. They are expected to confirm this room assignment online. Failure to confirm or cancel by August 1 will result in room cancellation as well as release of the room deposit. Rooms that have been confirmed and then canceled after August 1 will result in forfeiture of the room deposit.

Failure to Check Out Properly
Students are charged if they leave the residence hall without following checkout procedures. Additional charges may be assessed depending on the amount of cleaning and/or repairs required.

Residence Hall Unreturned Key Charges (subject to change)
  Unreturned or lost key fee $75
  Unreturned or lost security drawer key fee $10

Personal Effects Insurance. The University does not provide personal effects insurance coverage. The University is not responsible for the loss or damage, from any cause, of personal belongings brought to the campus. This is true even though students are required by the University to purchase certain items or to keep them in a specified place. The University strongly recommends that students secure their own personal effects insurance coverage.

Meal Plan Charges

Residence Hall Meal Plan
Undergraduate residence hall students under age 22 are required to participate in the Declining Balance Meal Plan. The minimum meal plan charge is $1,800 per semester. The meal plan can be used for purchases at the Terrace Café, Gazebo and campus vending machines.  In some cases, the minimum meal plan will not meet your complete food needs for the semester (for example, $1,800 should cover approximately two average meals each day, every day, throughout the semester). Students who know they will require a larger meal plan amount may opt to add additional funds through Dining Services. 

Students who run out of funds in the meal account during the semester may add to the balance in increments of $100 by request at the Office of Dining Services in the Campus Center.

No refund will be credited to the student’s account at the end of the semester if funds remain in the meal plan.

All residence hall students of Andrews University employees receiving 60% educational allowance must select a meal plan regardless of the student’s age. Women living in Damazo Hall can select the Damazo Meal Plan. please contact your Student Financial Services financial advisor.

Meal plan cost per semester ($1,800)

Café Account
Minimum amount to open a Café Account ($50)

The Café Account is a plan for graduate and undergraduate students not living in a dormitory.
