The initial application fee is paid through Housing and Residential Education's Housing Portal.  All other fees are paid through the student account.

Quarterly Housing and Meal Plan Fee Payments

The Department of Housing and Residential Education (DHRE) will place quarterly fees on the student account approximately 2 weeks prior to the beginning of each quarter.
