The cost of both room and board will remain the same for the 2018-2019 Academic year. Incoming residential students will choose meal plans and indicate residential preferences on the Housing Application. If you are a NEW student planning to reside on campus, you will receive an email sent to your personal email address about how to complete your housing application. Please complete this housing application in order to receive a room assignment in June. This must be completed no later than May 31, 2018 if you’d like to use the room mate selection feature. If you do not complete this by May 31, 2018, then we will auto-assign your room mate for you. The Housing Application will be sent to your email after your deposit is received.

Assignment of new students is made according to deposit date once this application has been processed. Returning students are assigned in order of completed academic hours. Once the Upperclassmen halls are full, the remaining students will be housed in O’Connell or Poellath Halls. Click here for more information about Residence Halls.
Resident students must purchase one of these two meal plans. These plans must be purchased through the Business Office, not through the campus dining service. Additional meal plan options, such as additional Flex dollars, can be purchased through the campus dining service.
- Basic Meal Plan – $2,133 per semester, includes 14 meals per week w/ $200 Flex dollars
- Unlimited Meal Plan – $2,233 per semester, includes unlimited meals per week w/ $100 Flex dollars
Flex dollars may be used in the campus coffee shop and grill, Holy Grounds. If you run short on Flex dollars, you can add more throughout the semester. All resident students are assigned to the Basic Meal Plan unless they notify the Office of Residence Life that they want the Unlimited Plan before the end of the drop/add period.

New Tax Requirement
The North Carolina Tax Simplification and Reduction Act (Session Law 2013-316) was passed on August 23, 2013, which, in part, repealed the exemption on sales tax for prepared food and food served to students at institutions of higher education. Our college will now be required to assess, collect, and remit this sales tax to the state of North Carolina, which began with the Spring 2014 semester. If you are a residential student you will see this additional line item on your statement, to accommodate for sales tax due. The official North Carolina Department of Revenue publication can be viewed here (applicable section is Part III, Effective January 1, 2014, “Food and Prepared Food Served at Institutions of Higher Education”).
