  • Peace and Justice

NOTE: In order to live in the Alverna or Peace and Justice communities, you must fill out an additional housing application specific to that community on eRezLife. Students enrolled in the duel-degree Engineering program can opt into living in the Engineering community on the main housing application.

Single-occupancy rooms

  • A minimal number of single rooms are available for new and returning students.
  • The additional cost is $690 per semester.
  • If you need a single room due to a medical condition, make note of this on the campus housing application. Your medical documentation should be mailed to:

All-access residential meal plan

  • Residential students are required to have this plan, which gives you unlimited entry to the Dining Commons whenever it is open.
  • Never worry about how many meals you've used or how many you have left. You can grab lunch with classmates, meet your study group for evening ice cream, or have coffee with a professor. Bring your laptop and surf the net. Stay as long as you like!
  • Includes $300 in FLEX dollars that supplement your meal plan for the semester. FLEX dollars work like a debit card. Each time you make a purchase, the total is subtracted from your balance. FLEX dollars do not roll over to a new semester.
    • FLEX bucks can be used in the Dining Commons or:
      • Knight's Table
      • Oath Pizza
      • P.O.D. Market
      • Starbucks
      • Subway
  • ​If you run out of FLEX dollars, you can add Knight Bucks to your account in increments of $50 from this web page: Knight Bucks rollover each semester as long as you are a registered, enrolled student. Watch for special Knight Bucks promotions throughout the year to save money!
  • You will get five (5) guess passes per semester or a total of ten (10) passes per year to use when friends or family visit campus.

  • Graduate students can add declining balance dollars or a commuter meal plan to their accounts. Click here for more details.
