Fall 2021 Housing
Fall 2021 Housing:
Will students be allowed to live on campus in Fall 2021?
Housing will be offered as space and safety allow, but it is not guaranteed. Fall 2021 will have limited spaces, and as we are able to, the University Village will open more spaces and adjust policies throughout the year.
Am I guaranteed a spot?
The University Village will be adapting our roommate configurations and community guidelines based on the recommendations of local/state and Department of Health officials throughout the 2021-2022 academic year. This will limit the number of students who can occupy each apartment and, thus, our availability of spaces throughout the next academic year. Due to the uncertainty and limited occupancy, we CANNOT guarantee students will be offered a space. As we are can, the University Village will open more spaces and adjust its policies throughout the year.
I am a returning resident who was assigned a space for the 2021-2022 school year. Am I guaranteed my space for the Spring 2022 semester if I do not live on campus for Fall 2021?
At this time, we cannot guarantee the room space to students who previously had a room assignment for Fall 2021. The University Village will be adapting our rooming configurations and community guidelines based on the recommendations of local/state and Department of Health officials throughout the 2021-2022 academic year. If you would like to cancel your Fall 2021 housing assignment and request to maintain your housing assignment for Spring 2022, please email email@example.com and state this specific request.
When will I know if I am assigned a space?
The University Village will have a limited occupancy for the Fall 2021 Semester. We will begin assigning students to apartments in the coming weeks. Assignment priority will be based on specific criteria outlined in the approved Chancellor’s Office plan. We will take into consideration students who are taking in-person classes/labs, live far away, or have housing insecurity.
Do assigned residents get to select their room?
Due to the many challenges and ever evolving variables surrounding Covid, University Village Housing Coordinator will be assigning ALL residents for Fall 2021 and while preferencing phases (Phase I, II, III), will be an option, preferences are not guaranteed.
Will I be able to live on-campus in Spring 2022 if more housing becomes available?
Students looking to be assigned a room in Spring 2022 or after in-person classes resume, can contact the University Village at firstname.lastname@example.org. The University Village cannot guarantee placement for the Spring 2022 semester, but if there is space available, the University Village will assign from this list throughout the 2021-2022 academic year.
Do I need to cancel my housing application if I no longer want to live on-campus for Fall 2021 but am still interested in Spring 2022?
Students who are licensed with the University Village for the 2021-2022 academic year can cancel their space for Fall 2021 and request to license for Spring 2022. To do so, send an email to email@example.com requesting to cancel for Fall 2021 and to license for Spring 2022. We cannot guarantee placement for the Spring 2022 semester, but if there is space available, the University Village staff will assign from this list throughout the 2021-2022 academic year.
Will students who apply to housing but would like to cancel their housing application be able to receive a refund of their $225 initial licensing payment or any additional fees?
Prior to July 19th, the Facility Fee of $175, which is part of of the initial licensing payment, is fully refundable prior to the following cancellation deadlines, however the $50 application fee is not:
If cancellation happens between July 20 – August 3, 2021, there will be a $200 cancellation penalty incurred. If cancellation happens between August 4 – August 17, 2021, a penalty fee of $475 will be incurred. Cancellation that happens after August 18th, 2021 has a $475 penalty fee, in addition to requiring a 30-day notice and any financial responsibility with that.
Students with a housing assignment: If a student has been assigned a space for Fall 2021 and has not canceled their license agreement yet, they should submit a cancellation request to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday, July 19, 2021, to cancel without a penalty fee. The Cancellation Form can be picked up at the University Village main office or found online here.
Students on the housing waitlist: Can cancel after their housing application at any time and receive a full refund of their initial payment.
Students wanting to cancel AFTER they have moved in: Must petition to cancel and if approved will be responsible for 30 days of fees after check-out.
Will the cost of housing be lower since there are fewer services on campus?
The cost of housing is determined by your apartment type (Phase 1, Phase 2 or Phase 3).
Will I be able to live with my selected roommate?
A resident may submit a roommate request to email@example.com. Housing assignments will be made based on what is available while following state guidelines. Unfortunately, due to eligibility requirements and occupancy restrictions, the roommate selection process cannot be guaranteed. Also, at this time it is planned that students will only be assigned in single spaces, in adherence with CDC guidelines. Not all room types will be filled to capacity beginning in Fall 2021, but additional roommates may be added throughout the academic year.
Will I be required to have a meal plan? Will I be able to order food from Centerpointe Dining Commons?
All University Village residents will be required to have a meal plan, in case of quarantine or isolation. The campus dining facilities will be adjusting their occupancy, process, and hours to safely accommodate the dining needs of our residents. Meal plan options purchased through University Village are below:
Meal Plan FAQ’s:
Are meal plans required?
Meal plans are required for any student living in on campus housing. Village residents will automatically be assigned the lowest level plan (Plan A – 20 meal swipes and $200 Bronco Bucks) but you can upgrade to a bigger plan at any point. The amount of swipes/bucks on your plan are for the entire semester. They do not reset each month. They do not expire.
Is there a discount for paying the full amount?
You can see the pricing in the attached photo. If you pay the full amount on move in day, you will get a discount (also listed in the above photo).
Where can it be used?
Each plan comes with meal swipes which can be used for a meal at CenterPointe. They also come with an amount of Bronco Bucks which can be used at any restaurant on campus, any on campus groceries (Vista or Farm Store), or anything at the Book Store.
Do I need to bring my own disinfecting/cleaning supplies?
Yes. Custodial Services will initially clean and disinfect each apartment; however, keeping a clean living environment is a community responsibility and imperative for both personal and community health and well-being.
What supplies should I bring related to COVID-19 when I move on-campus?
Students should bring a face covering to wear while in public spaces. Students should also bring cleaning supplies, such as hand soap, sanitizer, and disinfecting wipes.
