We have a limited number of apartments and bedrooms in Dillard Hall. When we run out of these spaces, we will begin housing students in the University Park Apartments at a higher rate. In order to keep the rates as low as possible, we encourage you to select Option A if at all possible.
If you require an ADA-compliant room due to physical limitations, Dillard Hall does have some fully-compliant rooms. Please be sure to make note of this in your registration form.
