UM Undergraduate Freshmen should live in a Residential College during their first year of study. Upper-class students may apply to live in a Resident College.  Those who register for residential living during the First Semester undertake (or pledge) to reside in the College for the entire academic year. College Fees, however, are paid in two installments,  one in May and the other in November.

  Residential College Fee (2016/2017)

The Residential College Fee is applicable to all students living in Residential Colleges, including new intakes and returning students.

•  Payment and Refund Table (2016/2017)
Students pay Residential College Fees according to the period in which they moved in. They will be charged a Non-Refundable Fee if they move out in the same semester they moved in. However, students who moved in during the First Semester and continue to stay in the Residential College in the Second Semester are “Return Students” and are not subject to payment of the Non-Refundable Fee  (if they move out in the Second Semester).
