Reapply for Housing
Students may reapply to live in the residence halls for 2010–11 between Jan. 25 and Feb. 5, 2010. Parents will receive information about reapplication over the winter break, and students will receive the reapplication materials in January. If students do not reapply electronically by the Feb. 5 deadline, they will lose their opportunity to be housed in the residence halls next year. So, make a note to yourself to drop your student a reminder.
Hawkeye Dollars Reach Far, Wide
In addition to food purchases on campus, Hawkeye Dollars may be used for laundry services and in select vending machines in the residence halls. This prepaid amount—each room contract includes $200 in Hawkeye Dollars per year ($100 per semester)—is credited to a special account, which students access by presenting a University ID. When students want to use Hawkeye Dollars to purchase food, they must inform the cashier, otherwise the purchases will be charged to their University bill.
Residents may purchase additional Hawkeye Dollars in $50 increments at the Account Management Centers in the Burge, Hillcrest, and Mayflower lobbies. Unused Hawkeye Dollars expire upon termination of the cardholder’s active affiliation with the University as a current student, faculty, or staff member, or upon 12 months of inactivity in the account—whichever comes first.
