Rental Payments

LAST UPDATED: June 24, 2015

What You Should Know

The University Housing Office can help you identify available rentals and develop a rental agreement.

The rent department manages security deposits and collects the monthly rental payments from the faculty, staff, and graduate students who live in University housing.

Rental Amounts & Due Date

Your monthly rent amount is stated on your rental agreement. This monthly amount is due on the first day of each month. If you have questions about your monthly rental payment, contact the rent department.


If You are Paid by the University
If you are a University employee or graduate student receiving payments through payroll, your monthly rental payment automatically will be deducted from your paycheck. When you pay your rent through payroll deduction, your payment is always for the month in which the deduction occurs. If your University payment is insufficient to cover the full amount of your monthly rental payment, you will be notified by e-mail of the outstanding balance and you should remit this balance due to the rent department in a timely manner.  

If you are on a 10-month salary and your rental contract is for 12 months, the July and August rental payments are equally spread over the subsequent September through June deductions. If you have questions about your rental payment, contact the rent department.

If You are Not Paid by the University
Since your rental payment cannot be deducted from a paycheck, you will receive a bill for your rent from the University’s billing service provider, ECSI. Your bill will include remittance instructions and provide information you need in order to access your online billing account, should you prefer to make automatic payments from your checking or savings account. A $25.00 fee will be assessed for any check or electronic payment request that is not honored by your bank. Contact the rent department if you have any problems accessing your billing account or have questions about your billing statement.
