Single Room (Single Room Rate)

Single Room (Single Room Rate) grants a student access to a single room without any discount to the room rate.

Housing provides this accommodation through room assignments or moving the student into an empty room if it is mid-term. The student is not eligible under this accommodation for a compensated room cost, and therefore is not required to have a single room.
