Room and Board/Meals Rates
A St. Thomas University housing contract is for the full academic year (fall and spring semesters – with the exception of winter break). Students are billed at the beginning of the fall semester for one-half of the contracted amount. The remaining amount is charged at the beginning of the spring semester based on the established rates for each room type and residence hall. The contract includes a meal plan. When computing the semester Room and Board charges, you must add the Room rate to the Board/Meals plan rate.
To assist you in this academic focus, St. Thomas University offers a variety of attractive, affordable and conveniently located Residence Halls you will call home.
