Meredith’s Office of Residence Life shares housing sign up information that parents and students need to know to prepare for the 2018-19 academic year, as well as the end of the current Spring 2018 semester.
Complete housing sign-up information is online on the Residence Life MyMeredith page. Residents are encouraged to read through the information carefully to understand the process and deadlines.
Residency Requirement reminder: Students in their first and second years at Meredith College are required to live on campus for the 2018-19 academic year regardless of the number of hours completed.
To sign up for a space on campus in an apartment or residence hall, each student signing up MUST have either her $200 security deposit for the Oaks or $150 advance room fee for the residence halls. The security deposit and advance room fee are non-returnable and non-refundable. Preferred method of payment is by check (cannot be a starter check). *The $150.00 advance room fee will be waived for students who have need-based financial assistance. Residents who do not need to bring the advance room fee will be notified by email prior to Spring Break. The apartment security deposit cannot be waived.
Housing Sign-up Timeline
End of the Semester Closing
It may seem like the semester just started but it’s never too early to think about the end of the semester! It is important that all residents make their move out plans before the last minute. Residents will be receiving move-out and end of the semester information in early April, but the information below may be of use to parents.
For residents in Vann, Stringfield, Faircloth, and Brewer, if they have lofted, bunked, or otherwise repositioned their bedsprings on the end and foot boards, they need to re-set their beds to the sixth rung from the bottom. This is required to be done by Reading Day so that when the resident is ready to check out after finals, she does not have to worry about re-setting her bed to the proper height. Each resident who has lofted her bed is responsible for taking it down and putting the loft pieces in the storage closet.
Other tips for move out include beginning to recycle items such as old notebooks and sorting items that can be donated. Taking home clothing that is not needed and winter items is helpful, too.
The last scheduled final is on Wednesday, May 9. All residents are encouraged to move-out of their residence hall room within 24-hours of their last exam. This allows residents who have finals later in the week to study and not be distracted by residents who are finished with finals.
Oaks Summer Billing Reminder
Residents of the Oaks who are not graduating are responsible for their summer rent because the Rental Agreement is for 12 months. There are three billing cycles for the Oaks: Fall, Spring and Summer. The summer rent bills will be sent to residents in April and the full summer rent amount is due by June 1.
Questions? Residents can talk to their Resident Assistant or Residence Director. Residence Life can be contacted via email firstname.lastname@example.org. For Oaks questions, contact Rebekah Gardner, Apartment Manager at email@example.com.
