If the cost of tuition and course fees are less than the amount received from financial aid, a refund will be issued directly to the student.

What Kitchen Supplies Will I Need to Bring?
If you have some extra pots and pans, glasses, or utensils – bring them if possible. Your roommates may have a lot / or very little in the way of supplies.

Is Smoking Allowed in the Building or Apartments?

How Do Roommates Handle Buying Food and Supplies?
Residents handle the purchasing of food items in several different ways, depending on their tastes, friendships, and money situations. Some pool their money and buy items to be used in common, such as toilet paper, kitchen condiments, cleaning items and paper towels. Others take turns (a weekly rotation) when buying the common items. Some roommates make buying items a personal choice — where individual students purchase these items themselves and keep them in their private bedrooms. The key to roommates “getting along well” is to make certain that no matter what system is used, each roommate understands and agrees to that system.

What Do I Do if I Am Having Roommate Issues? How Can I Prevent Issues From Coming Up?
All apartments are provided Roommate Agreement forms at the start of the quarter. This guide can help you and your roommates talk about common issues and compromise on what people are comfortable with. Even if you don’t use the form, having conversations early and understanding what everyone is comfortable with helps prevent issues. If conflict does arise, be direct (but respectful) in communicating with your roommate(s). If that doesn’t work, you can reach out to CVV staff for suggestions, support, or even formal mediation.
