Application Fees and Deposits
An application fee of $30 is required for all students applying for the first time. This should be submitted with the official application. It is non-refundable.
Housing Deposit and Application Fee
A $200 deposit and $150 non-refundable application fee is currently required to be remitted with the residence hall contract to serve as a reservation and damage deposit. This deposit must be on file every academic year the student is enrolled and lives on campus.
The $200 deposit serves as a combined room reservation, room damage, security deposit, and key deposit. Refunds will be made according to the following conditions: 1. The University is unable to provide campus housing; or 2. A proper request for cancellation has been made in accordance with the housing contract, or 3. The terms of the contract are fulfilled, the Resident has been officially checked out of the room by a residence hall staff member, and the Resident is cleared of responsibility for damage to the room or building. The $200 deposit will be forfeited, wholly or in part, when the Resident: 1. Is responsible for damage to the room or building; 2. Fails to follow department checkout procedures; 3. Obtains an approved cancellation of the contract after the established deadline; or 4. Owes money, other than housing related, to the University of West Georgia.
Lost Residence Hall Keys
Should a key be lost or stolen, the compromised lock must be changed at a cost of $40 for the traditional halls and Tyus, $95 for University Suites, and $145 for four bedroom and $95 for two bedroom at Arbor View. Keys must be returned to the Residence Life staff when the student checks out of his or her residence hall. Duplication or possession of unauthorized keys by a student is prohibited.
