A one-time housing deposit of $100 must be paid before a student will be assigned an apartment in Southeast Tech Housing. The deposit will remain on the account for the duration of the student’s residency and is non-refundable.  
The Housing Deposit will not be used to pay for damages, fines or other fees incurred during the duration of residency. Such charges, fines and fees will be applied to a student’s account at the time they occur with payment expected within two weeks.
