Every residential student must pay a housing deposit in the amount of $250 either at the time of admission or upon returning to university housing. Students may not complete a housing application until a housing deposit is paid and processed, which takes roughly 48 hours from receipt of deposit.
The deposit is held until the student departs campus housing. If there are no damages or other charges assessed on the student’s account at that time, the Office of Student Accounts will later process a refund. Students who are approved to be released from their housing and dining services agreement forfeit their housing deposit.
Newly admitted residential students must pay their housing deposit through the Office of Admissions.
All other students requesting to live in University housing must pay their deposit directly to the Office of Residence Life with a $250 check or money order. It should be made out to UMW with the student’s Banner ID number (beginning with “000”) in the memo line, and brought to Marye House or mailed to:
UMW Residence Life
Attn: Cece Burkett
1301 College Avenue
Fredericksburg, VA 22401
To pay a housing deposit in cash, email email@example.com to make arrangements to bring exact change to Marye House.
Students returning to on-campus housing may submit a housing deposit online through the On-Campus Housing and Dining Agreement found on the housing portal.
