Please note that this budget is based on the most current information we were able to obtain from current students and other trusted sources, but that some rates are approximate and/or subject to change. (Last update: July 2017)
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 Dean of Students Office receives some donations of good quality furniture and other household items to help new students set up a home. To see what is available, look for the "Gifts for New Students" area at Regent the week before Orientation and during the Orientation week.
