Residence Hall Room Rates


Room rates vary depending on the building and room type that a student is assigned. Students will  be able to request a specific building or specific room rate when applying for housing. We do not guarantee that preferences will be met but will do our best to accommodate students.

Students will be assigned to rooms based on when their housing application/contract and $500 deposit was received for new students. Continuing students will apply for housing and participate in the Room Selection Process. 

The summer contract is typically May to August, academic year is the beginning of the fall semester through the end of the spring semester, and we have a spring only contract for students entering the housing system to live on campus beginning spring semester. We do not have a fall only contract. The contract dates may change based on the university calendar.

The Housing Application for Summer 14 is currently live on RU Access. The deadline for summer housing is February 28th. The Housing Application for 2014-15 will be live on February 3rd. The rates, which are listed per person, are as follows:

Wabash Building

All rooms require a standard meal plan, which you will find in the table below. Students have the option to upgrade to a deluxe meal plan during the first week of school.

The Roosevelt University dining plan is designed to provide students with maximum purchasing power and flexibility in when and how they use their dining dollars.  The benefit to the Roosevelt declining balance meal plan is that students can utilize every dollar of the plan, versus some universities that offer a weekly plan where they have a set amount of meals each week which restricts the students use of the plan.  The Roosevelt meal plan's declining balance rolls over from fall to spring, and at the end of the academic year the plan ends and in accordance with the housing contract the dining dollars are non-refundable.  We encourage students throughout the year to budget and utilize every dollar of their meal plan.
