It’s time to start thinking about your student’s 2009 housing needs
On Jan. 26, 2009, students who live in the residence halls will receive information on how to reapply for housing for the 2009–10 academic year. This information will be sent to students’ residence hall mailboxes and to their University e-mail accounts. Students reapply electronically and charge the $120 payment ($100 advance payment and $20 nonrefundable application processing fee) to their March University bill.
Students may access the reapplication booklet on the web. The booklet includes the terms and conditions of the housing contract; the electronic application; and important information on the self-assignment process, space changes, and cancellation. The deadline to apply electronically is 5 p.m., Feb. 10, 2009. If a student chooses to reapply on paper, the application/contract signature card may be obtained at the University Housing Office, 4141 Burge. The application/contract signature card and $120 (cash, check, or charge to University bill) must be returned to the University Housing Office by 5 p.m., Feb. 10, 2009.
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 are assigned an initial access time to select and confirm a room and meal plan, between March 3 and 11, 2009, based on number of credit hours. When a room is confirmed, the student 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 3, 2009, 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 2009–10 academic year.
When students reapply, the rates for the 2009–10 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.
