On Jan. 28, 2008, students who live in the residence halls will receive information on how to reapply for housing for the 2008-09 academic year. This information will be sent to the students’ campus addresses and will explain how to charge the $120 payment ($100 advance payment and $20 nonrefundable application processing fee) to their next University bill.
Students may access the reapplication booklet on the web. The booklet includes the terms and conditions of the housing contract; the electronic reapplication; and important information on the self-assignment system, space changes, and cancellation. The deadline to apply electronically is 5 p.m., Feb. 5, 2008. If the student chooses to reapply on paper, the signature card may be obtained at the Contracts and Assignments Office, 17 Burge. The application/ contract signature card and $120 (cash or check) must be returned to the Contracts and Assignments Office by 5 p.m., Feb. 5, 2008.
Students will be required to have one of the following meal plans:
Each room contract includes $200 in Hawkeye Dollars per year ($100 per semester). Hawkeye Dollars may be used at Burge and Hillcrest Market Places, Mayflower and Hillcrest C-Stores, all Iowa Memorial Union food service areas, food carts throughout campus, and in residence hall washers and dryers.
Students select and confirm a room and meal plan between Feb. 26 and March 5, and will automatically receive an e-mail confirmation of the assignment. Students may access the self-assignment system as frequently as they wish after their appointed time and until 5 p.m., April 4, 2008, to search for a different room or to change the meal plan. If the student has not confirmed a room by that time, the application will be canceled, the $100 advance payment will be refunded, and the student will not be housed for the 2008-09 academic year.
When students reapply, the rates for the 2008-09 academic year will not have been approved by the Board of Regents, State of Iowa; therefore, proposed rates will be displayed in the self-assignment system.
