Costs & Contracts

Deposits

In order to secure housing, a $200 refundable housing deposit is required. This amount is not covered by scholarships, grants or loans. The housing contract is not in effect and no space will be provided or assigned unless the Office of Residential Life is in receipt of a completed contract, health form, and the required deposit. This deposit functions exactly like a security deposit for a rental property; any damages a student makes to a room or common area will be deducted from their housing deposit. The remainder of the money is returned when the student moves out of the residence halls permanently, not just for summer break. Please allow six to eight weeks for processing and returning of housing deposits.

Only students who have been accepted and who have submitted the housing deposit should fill out housing contacts.

To sign up to live on campus for the 2017-2018 academic year, please complete an online copy of our housing contract and USF health and physical exam form. If you are a first-year student and would like to be placed on a waiting list for Padua Hall, please also fill out the Padua Hall contract addendum. If you print the paperwork, please return the contract, health form, and your deposit to the Office of Residential Life, 2701 Spring Street, Fort Wayne, IN 46808.

Required Health Forms

In order to be in good standing with the University and the Office of Residential Life, you must complete the residential life section (part 1) of the health and physical exam form. This form is due prior move-in, and it is helpful if you submit it with your housing contract. Please note that for those commuting, we still ask for your Health Form submission. This ensures you have an emergency contact on file and are taken care of in case of an emergency.
