Housing Fee Policy
Goucher College charges different housing fees depending on whether the student is in a single, double, or triple room. Fees may change when the number of roommates changes, as described as follows. Housing fees are based on the number of roommates as of the drop deadline each semester, with the exception of double rooms as noted below. Changes after the drop deadline each semester will not result in any fee change to the remaining students. Housing fee changes will be based strictly on the number of roommates in the room. Reasons why a student may have left the room are irrelevant. If a triple room becomes a double by the drop deadline for the semester, the housing fee for the remaining two roommates will be increased to the double room rate. If a double room becomes a single by the drop deadline for the semester, the housing fee for the remaining student will not increase, in anticipation that the remaining student will be assigned another roommate at some future time in the semester. If the number of roommates increases by the drop deadline for the semester (such as a double room becoming a triple or a single room becoming a double), the housing fee for the original student(s) will be reduced to the appropriate room rate.
The charge for room and board provides a furnished room and board from the official date of opening in the fall and spring through the respective closing dates each semester, exclusive of the recess periods at Thanksgiving, winter break (between semesters), and spring break. All hall residents are charged a $175 room damage deposit annually. These deposits are credited back to student tuition accounts in June (or January if the student leaves after the fall semester). Final hall and/or room damage charges are also assessed at that time.
