On Campus Housing

The Office of Student Affairs is available to advise on both on- and off-campus housing opportunities.

Roommates and Move-In Day
The Corcoran staff selects your roommate(s), based on your responses to the lifestyle questions on your housing application. You will receive roommate assignment and move-in information through a letter mailed in the summer.
On move-in day, Orientation Leaders will be at Pennsylvania House to welcome and assist you with the check-in and move-in process.
Resident assistants (RAs) live on-site in Corcoran housing, and are available to provide advice and answer any questions. RAs also plan social and informational meetings during the year to promote camaraderie and a sense of community. The housing director, who also lives on site, supervises the RAs.
Costs of Housing
Your Corcoran apartment, which you share with one or two roommates, costs $10,900 per year for the 2013-2014 academic year, payable in two payments of $5450, one at the start of each semester (August and January). Because the housing contract for Corcoran students covers the academic year, you are not committed to a 12-month lease. There is no application fee, first and last month’s rent deposit, or credit check for students. Any financial aid funds remaining after your tuition and fees are paid can be used toward rent.
