Actually, if you consider all you are getting for your money, the apartments are a very good deal. Consider a private room in a traditional hall. The current private room rate for one of those is $2,200 ($1650 + $550). That does not include a semi-private bathroom, your own kitchen and living room. A four-bedroom apartment at $2,390 with kitchen, living room and semi-private bath is a very good value.
Yes, as long as your award is sufficient to cover the entire cost.

No, the contract will be for a full year regardless of your enrollment status.
