*In addition, there is a $196 per year non-refundable comprehensive single student apartment fee ($98 per semester).

Reservation/Application Cancelation

To cancel either a single student apartment application or reservation, a student should notify the Housing and Residence Life Office in writing (or e-mail us at housing@nmu.edu). If written notice of cancelation is received before the apartment is offered, the entire advance payment will be refunded. If the student cancels his or her reservation or application after an apartment is offered, the entire advance payment will be forfeited. The advance payment will be refunded if the university is unable to accommodate any of the student's apartment preferences.

Payment Schedule

Students may either pay their apartment rent in one lump sum by the appropriate due date (Fall Semester - August 6; Winter Semester - January 5) or sign up for one of Northern Michigan University's payment options at:  www.nmu.edu/paymentplans.

The rent amounts on the schedule include the $125 advance payment, due with the student's application, which is applied to the total rent due and a non-refundable comprehensive single student apartment fee ($196/year; $98/semester).

Payment Information

Single student apartment rent will generally be billed in conjunction with the university's tuition and fee billing in July.  Checks must be made payable to Northern Michigan University and should have the student's name and NMU student identification number (NMU IN) noted on the front of the check. Payments must be either sent or taken to the Student Service Center, 2201 C.B. Hedgcock, Northern Michigan University, 1401 Presque Isle Avenue, Marquette, MI 49855. Note that students who check in through the end of the first week of classes will be charged from the beginning of the semester. The semester rental rate will not be pro-rated until the beginning of the second week of classes. Prior approval by a staff member from the Student Service Center must be obtained if a payment will be delayed.

Since financial aid is not available before the payment is due, each student must pay the $125 advance payment with his or her personal funds. Financial aid will be applied first to any amount due for tuition and fees and any excess will be applied to apartment rent due and then any other financial obligations. Financial aid in excess of financial obligations will be returned to the student.

Rate Changes

If a student's apartment assignment changes so his or her rental rate also changes (e.g., from a two-person apartment to a single apartment or from one-bedroom to a two-bedroom apartment), the student should: 1) verify his or her account with the Housing and Residence Life Office to determine the prorated charges or credits resulting from the new rate (which will be applied to the student's account), and 2) if someone else is making the payment, notify that person of the change.

Moves between apartments and townhouses must be arranged and approved through the Housing and Residence Life Office.  There is a transfer fee for each move.

Refunds

The single student contract is for the entire academic year (both the fall and winter semesters), or from the time of arrival until the end of the winter semester unless the student terminates his or her enrollment or receives written approval from the Housing and Residence Life Office to terminate the contract. The procedures for applying to terminate the contract are available from the Housing and Residence Life Office. A student who does either of these and checks out properly, will be refunded the amount he or she has paid for rent in excess of rent due, plus any apartment damages and, if applicable, a $50 contract termination fee, and any other amount owed to NMU. Rent charges or credits will be calculated using the official date of the contract termination specified on the single student contract termination form. There is no rent credit for the last two weeks of the semester.
