Residence Life Contract
Please completely read the form below, and fill out the indicated areas. It is recommended that you print this page for your future reference.
This "Residence Life Contract" must be completed before being considered for housing. To continue the process of housing registration, you must agree to abide by Holy Cross policies and procedures outlined in this contract. You are also required to verify that your $200.00 Housing Deposit has been submitted.
Living in a Holy Cross College residence hall is a privilege accompanied by considerable individual and collective responsibility. Carefully read and become familiar with the contractual information to which you need to accept in order to proceed.
Holy Cross College agrees to provide residence hall accommodations and meals according to the academic year schedule. Students agree to become members of the residence community, to adhere to and support the college rules and regulations as found in the Holy Cross College Student Handbook.
The student also agrees to pay the College the prescribed fees and be subject to the terms and conditions below. By submitting this contract students understand the costs being agreed to and accept financial responsibility.
NOTE: Because of the serious consideration which the college gives to this contractual agreement, each student is urged to read thoroughly the terms and conditions before submission to the college. Notification must be submitted in writing within one week of submission of this contract to disclose any reason that may prevent you from fulfilling this contract. Those who anticipate not being able to fulfill this contract for the entire academic year will be accommodated on a space-available basis.
Select the term(s) for which you are applying for residence
* Only available in male residence halls.
All rooms are equipped with a bed, desk, desk chair, wardrobe or closet and computer port for each occupant. Price also includes the cost of internet service, basic cable, and laundry facilities. Students have a choice of either using their cell phone or the college phone system for phone contact purposes in their dorm room. If a student chooses to use the college phone system then voice mail is provided at no charge.
There are a variety of housing accommodations available on campus. In addition to the apartment style residence hall we also have single, double, and triple occupancy rooms. A small number of double rooms have a private bathroom. Current HCC students will select their rooms for the upcoming school year in mid April. In late May Residence Life staff will begin to carefully hand-match new incoming students with their roommates / room requests, based on the selections made on the Residence Life Contract. While sorting through hundreds of contracts and matching individuals by hand is a time-consuming process, there are no guarantees that conflicts will not arise. Please keep in mind that living with people from other cultures and backgrounds is also an integral part of the college experience.
Housing applications will be considered on a 'space-available' basis. As a general rule the sooner you apply and submit all the necessary paperwork the better your chances of getting your preferred housing. All resident students will be able to view their room assignment through the HC Portal (Look inside the "Popular Pages" window at the top of this and every website page. Sign into the portal using the username and password that are assigned from Admissions upon successfully being admitted to the college). The housing roster in the HC-Portal will be updated periodically.
You will NOT have immediate notification of where you will be living as soon as you have completed the Residence Life Contract and sent in your $200 Housing Deposit. Confirmation of your housing deposit may take up to 5-7 business days.
