Billable Days

The Residence Hall Room & Board Contract is for an entire semester. Fees are billed on a daily rate based on your Room Type and Meal Plan. For the University’s 2021-2022 academic calendar the total billable days 119.

The total billable days do not include Winter Break. Days that are not billed in this cycle are:

  • December 12, 2021– January 10, 2022


  • There is no fee for cancelling the contract on or before the cancellation deadlines.
    • Cancellation Deadlines:
      • Fall 2021: August 1, 2021
  • There is a $100 fee for canceling after the cancellations deadlines. In addition to the fee, we will only accept the cancellation after the deadline if you have also cancelled your 2021-2022 UWest Registration or if we have a replacement for you.

If you are released from your Contract and you move out of the residence halls before the end of the Contract, fees will be reimbursed prorated to the Contract cancellation date. A final review of your account (Room and Board and Plus Plan usage) will determine if you would receive a refund or be required to pay additional fees.

Staying When the University is Closed – Break Housing

The residence halls close during the University’s Winter Break period. During this time, students do not have access to their room and are not charged for room and board in their overall rate. In order to accommodate our international, out-of-state, and foster youth students, we designate a group of buildings to remain open for those who cannot go home. Students who need this “break housing” will pay an additional fee.

Minimal services are provided during these times (i.e. limited meal service, only emergency staffing).

Break housing applications will be available once we near Winter Break. The additional fees are due December 6, 2021.

  • Thanksgiving Break – Included in your contract
  • Winter Break only – Check back for Rates
  • Spring Break – Included in your contract
