University Subsidies

There are a few instances whereby the University will subsidize a portion of students' summer housing charges.  These primarily include students participating in faculty-sponsored on-campus research/experiential learning (approved through the Provost's Office) or the Summer Enrichment Program (SEP) through the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.  These subsidies will cover the cost of a standard room.
