Please note that this budget is based on the most current information we were able to obtain, but that some rates are subject to change.

It is wise to budget more money for the first month to cover any potential unexpected costs. For example, some families end up paying for temporary accommodation, renting a car to look for permanent housing, buying furniture, etc.

The Assistant Dean of Students Office does receive some donations of furniture, household goods, and clothing to help new students set up a home. Check to see what is available when you arrive at Regent.
