$500 Housing Deposit

The $500 housing contract deposit is required to be received by Roosevelt within 15 (fifteen) business days of the housing application and contract being submitted.  Students may make a payment to Student Accounts or pay online through RU Access. 

The housing deposit is required one time when you first apply for housing. Then for as long as you live on campus, you will not need to re-submit your housing deposit.  The housing deposit will be released to your account at the end of the following semester. For example, if you leave housing at the end of Fall 2015, your $500 housing deposit will be released to your account at the end of the Spring 2016. If you have a balance on your student account, the housing deposit will go towards that balance. If you have a zero balance on your student account, then the $500 housing deposit will be refunded to you.

Students applying in January to live on-campus that spring are still required to submit a housing deposit.



New and continuing students, who were planning to live on-campus for fall, but experience a change of plan or circumstance and will no longer be living on-campus must cancel their housing contract by July 15 to receive a housing deposit refund. 

Students must submit their request to cancel the housing contract in writing to the Office of Residence Life at

Cancellations may take up to six weeks to process.
