Winter Break Fees

 

ALL ROOM TYPES

WINTER BREAK HOUSING

DEC. 10, 2022 - JAN. 7, 2023

(OPTIONAL)

$1,500

Housing is closed Dec. 10, 2022 - Jan. 7, 2023 for winter break. We have limited Winter Break housing for students who wish to stay during the break and you may be required to move to another space, just for the break. As most students depart, winter break is not included in the academic year contract and fees and a separate charge applies. Let us know if you plan to stay for the break when you sign up for Housing. 

Payment Steps

  1. Pay the $1,500 initial payment when you sign up for housing

    Since all first-years living on campus are required to purchase a dining plan, the initial payment is combined for housing and dining. Here's the breakdown:

    $500 (housing portion) + $1,000 (dining portion) = $1,500 (initial payment)

    Financial Aid identifies students who qualify for deferral of the initial payment based on 2022-23 FAFSA or CA Dream application data. The initial payment is automatically bypassed for these students. To be considered, you must have a 2022-23 Financial aid application on file.
     
  2. Pay the balance of housing fees 
    Annual housing fees are posted to your Student Account in August. 

    You have four options for paying the balance: Defer payment of Housing and Dining charges to be paid by financial aid (only if the your have accepted sufficient financial aid to pay for all Registration, Housing, and Dining fees) or pay entire annual balance, the quarterly balance or the first monthly installment.

    Quarterly housing charges will be split up into three monthly installment amounts with monthly due dates. Students may pay more than the minimum monthly installment amount. There are no penalties for paying off balances ahead of schedule. If a student prefers not to make monthly payments, they have the option to pay the full quarterly amount or even the annual amount.

    At minimum, the monthly installment amount must be made by the set due date (unless deferred by financial aid) to avoid any holds that may be placed on the account.

    All payments should be made using Cal Poly’s CASHNet payment portal or submitted (via mail or in-person) to the University Cashier’s Office. Payments received after 5 p.m. are posted the following business day.

    For any questions regarding charges and payments please visit the Student Accounts webpage or contact them at 805-756-1428.
