Room Selection – Advance Housing Payment

A $450 advance housing payment is required to fully participate in room selection.  An e-bill (Advance payment email notification) for the $450 advance housing payment is sent on February 1, to each full-time matriculated undergraduate University housing resident and those participants in SU Programs Abroad, COOP or Internship who indicated they wished to participate.

WAIVER

  • Students whose financial aid awards (grants, loans, scholarships) total 70% or more of University room, meal plan, tuition, and fees for the Spring 2019 semester may request a waiver of the advance payment on-line through MySlice.  Simply select MySlice – Student Services – Housing, Meal Plans and ID Card – Self Service.  Then select MORE TASKS – Housing Waiver Request.  Requests for a waiver are verified for qualification immediately.  You will see and receive an email confirming or denying the request.  If you are unsure if you qualify for a waiver, you should plan to submit the waiver request.  Allow sufficient time to meet the payment deadline in the event your request is denied.

CREDIT ON ACCOUNT

  • If a student has a credit balance on their bursar account and wishes to apply it toward the fall 2019 semester advance housing payment, make a request through the Housing Office.  Please email housing@syr.edu to request this.  Please note you must have a negative account balance or credit due on your Bursar account to be considered.
