Room Assignments

 

  • Is there a way to indicate my room preference?
    • Student Housing cannot guarantee room or roommate assignments. We try our best to honor requests and want to serve everyone in the best possible way. You may request your preferred room type and/or roommate on your housing application or contact Student Housing (housing@sbts.edu) to update your preferences.
  • When will I receive my dorm room assignment?
    • Typically, you can expect to receive room/roommate assignments 2-3 weeks before move-in day.

 

  • I am an incoming/returning student for the Fall 2017 semester. Which residence hall will I be living in?
    • Boyce College students can expect housing assignments in the Mullins Complex and Fuller Hall for the Fall 2017 Semester.
    • Housing for SBTS students for the Fall 2017 Semester has yet to be determined, but incoming students may expect to be assigned housing in Carver Hall and Fuller Hall.

 

  • What if I want to change my dorm room assignment?
    • Returning Boyce College and SBTS students should speak with their RA and/or RD through Student Life regarding room change requests before contacting Student Housing.
    • Room assignments cannot always be changed, but please e-mail Student Housing (housing@sbts.edu ) after speaking with your RD if you have a serious concern about your room assignment as we welcome any questions and feedback.

 

Move-In Process

  • When can I move in?
    • Each semester we establish a move-in day for all residents. This date changes depending on the day the semester begins, but is typically the weekend before classes start. Returning students (not living on-campus for the winter term) may return on Orientation Day.
    • Orientation Day for the Fall 2017 semester will be:
      • August 11, 2017 (Boyce College)
      • August 10, 2017 (SBTS)
    • Information for SBTS Orientation can be found here. Information for Boyce College Orientation can be found here.

 

  • Can I move in before move-in day?
    • With the exception of extreme circumstances, students will not be allowed to move-in early.
    • If you need housing accommodations on campus before move in day you can contact the Legacy Hotel at (502) 736-0600 for available accommodations.

 

  • Can I move in after move-in day?
    • While it is in your best interest to arrive on move in day before classes begin, students may move into their dorms on or after their assigned move-in date, but must arrive during regular business hours to receive the key for your housing unit.
    • Please contact Student Housing by email if you need to move in after move in day, so that we can hold your key and dorm contract for you.

 

  • When is payment for room and board due?
    • The specific due date for room and board is published on your housing contract at the beginning of the semester.
    • Summer housing payment due date – Sometime in July (more details to come)
    • You may contact the Accounting Office if you are interested in enrolling in a payment plan (accounting@sbts.edu).

 

  • How do I pay for my room and board?
    • Room and board charges are placed on your student account and must be paid online at My.SBTS.edu.
    • Please contact Accounting if you have any questions regarding online payment: accounting@sbts.edu, (502) 897-4132.

 

  • Where is the Student Housing office located?
    • The Student Housing office recently moved to Rankin Hall 208. Rankin Hall is located next to/behind Carver Hall and the office on the second floor. Student Housing may also be reached by phone (502-897-4203), or email (housing@sbts.edu).

 

  • What items are allowed/not allowed in residential halls and what items/furniture are provided in the rooms?
    • View Mullins Complex move-in guidelines here.
    • View Fuller/Carver move-in guidelines here.

 

  • Can I pick up my dorm key if I arrive after the Housing office closes?
    • In order to maintain the safety and security of current residents as well as incoming residents, we are not able to leave keys for students after hours. You must visit Student Housing during regular business hours (M-F 8 AM – 5 PM) to receive a key for your housing unit.

 

  • What does my meal plan consist of?
    • The meal plans vary according to your preference of the number of meal scans that can be used at the cafeteria and the amount of Flex dollars at Founder’s Café. Flex dollars can be spent dollar for dollar on a wide selection of sandwiches, salads, pizza and beverages. Please visit the Dining Hall page here in order to find out more information.
  • The numbers aren’t adding up, will my meal plan be enough?
    • Though the number of meals does not work out to be 3 meals per day, most students have plenty of meals to last through the semester. On Sundays and Fall/Spring breaks, no meal plans are accepted, but Flex dollars may be used at Founder’s Cafe. Residence Halls also have kitchens available for your convenience.

 

  • What if the meal plan cannot accommodate my food allergies?
    • The dining hall strives especially hard to serve those with food allergies; therefore, exemptions from the meal plan are rarely granted.
    • Please feel free to contact Dining Services about accommodations that can be made to address your specific situation. If Dining Services is unable to accommodate your dietary needs, you may submit a detailed doctor’s note to Student Housing and an exemption from the meal plan may be considered.

 

  • How do I know if I qualify for an upperclassman meal plan?
    • Boyce College students have the option to enroll in the upperclassman meal plan if they have completed 63 or more credit hours by the start of the semester.

 

  • How do I select/change my meal plan?
    • New students may select their meal plan upon receiving an offer for housing in the residence halls.
    • Returning students who desire a different meal plan than the previous semester may contact Student Housing to change their meal plan. Student Housing will also verify a student’s meal plan choice when they check-in on move-in day.

 

  • Do you have on-campus storage available?
    • At this time, we do not have any rental storage units available for residents.

 

  • Can I stay in the dorms over the winter/summer breaks?
    • If you are a current dorm resident living in the residential halls, you may live in the dorms during the winter/summer breaks (pending availability). Towards the middle of each semester, all dorm residents are required to submit an intentions form to Student Housing which will describe your plans for the winter/summer break.
    • During the summer/winter breaks, no meal plan will be provided.
    • Rates for staying during breaks are published during the semester and before the upcoming break.
    • Availability for summer and winter housing may be limited depending on space constraints and demand for housing. Students may be required to meet a certain criteria to be eligible for winter/summer housing. This information will be made known to residents in advance of the approaching winter/summer term.

 

Move-Out Process

 

  • How do I check out student housing?
    • To check out of the residence hall at the end of the semester, you must first leave your room clean and empty of any personal belongings (unless given permission for personal belongings to remain).
    • After you have moved out of your room and locked the door, you must go to the Student Housing office to fill out a check-out form on one of the desktop computers and return your key to one of our employees.

 

  • How do I check out when I am not planning to live on campus again?
    • Please follow the same procedure listed above, but note in the checkout form that you will not be returning, and follow the prompts to provide any additional details.

 

  • What happens if I do not check out correctly?
    • It is imperative for the safety of our students and accuracy of our records that you complete the check-out process correctly. Fines will be assessed for students who neglect to check out properly. Improper check outs include, but not limited to:
      • Checking out of campus housing after published deadline
      • Checking out and returning a key not assigned to you at the beginning of the semester (or checking out for someone else)
      • Not returning your key to Student Housing or Campus Police prior to leaving campus
      • Not completing the check-out form prior to leaving campus

 

  • Can I check out after hours?
    • If you need to check out on a weekend or after business hours (business hours are 8 AM – 5 PM on weekdays), you can use the checkout form on the computer in the Campus Police office. There is a drop box there for your key, as well. Please make sure to both submit a checkout form and correctly return your key in order to avoid improper checkout fines.

 **The Campus Police office is open 24-hours a day. For safety measures, the exterior door is locked at all times, so you will need to ring the bell in order to gain access.
