HOUSING

Live On Campus

Living in the residence halls during the Highlander Early Start Academy enhances your experience by the presence of trained live-in staff, access to study lounges and computer labs, and educational, social, cultural and recreational activities that complement your classroom experiences. Get to know other students that will become fellow classmates (and possible roommates) in the fall.

Living on campus is highly recommended for all participants, but is not mandatory.

Move In

The housing move-in date is Sunday, July 30th and the first meal is dinner. You may move in following the Welcome Event which ends at 12:00pm. The Highlander Early Start Academy Residence Life staff looks forward to meeting you!

Move Out

The housing move-out date is Saturday, September 16th.  If you have a 2017-2018 Academic Year Housing Contract on file you can then move into your permanent room.  There will be a daily rate charge added to your account if you would like to occupy the room from September 16th until your Academic Year Housing Contract begins.

Eligibility

All Highlander Early Start Academy participants are eligible to live on campus during the program.

Residence Life

Students living in the residence halls during Highlander Early Start Academy have the benefit of getting a preview of what life in the residence halls will be like during the academic year.  Housing, Dining & Residential Services staff provides a number of social, educational, and academic programs that are designed to complement and heighten your experience. In addition, every community in the hall is assigned a Resident Advisor or RA; RAs are trained peer leaders who are responsible for the floor and are there to assist with programming, community development and any issues that arise.  Your RA will plan programs and events for the community in an effort to people to get out and get to know one another.  Be sure to take advantage of these opportunities whenever possible.

How To Pay For Housing

Your housing fees may be covered by a financial aid package!

Students with a housing grant or students who are paying housing charges without financial aid should make payments as stated on the cover letter for the Summer Housing Contract.

  • If you are paying by check/money order, submit the appropriate first payment with your contract.
  • If you are paying by eCheck or credit card (American Express, DiscoverCard or Master Card), submit your contract and wait to make your online first payment until AFTER your Summer Housing charge appears on your GROWL account.  A non-refundable convenience fee will be charged.  No credit card payments can be accepted at the Cashiers’ Office.
  • If you are expecting “Summer Financial Aid” to pay for your Summer Housing, be sure to check the appropriate box in the Payment section so that we do not consider your lack of payment an incomplete.
