Housing Deposits

In order to reserve a room for the 2020-2021 academic year, current students must pay a $750.00 housing deposit. This must be paid on or before February 15, 2020 in order to use our online housing system. First Year students are not required to pay the $750.00 housing deposit in order to use our online housing system, but must pay the $500.00 enrollment fee instead. Please be aware that paying the housing deposit does not guarantee a housing space on High Point University’s Campus.

The $750 Housing Deposit can be paid in the following options:

  • Online: Payment can be made by ACH, eCheck, credit or debit card. There will be an additional transaction fee (2.75%) when using credit or debit cards, no fee for ACH or eCheck payments.
  • Phone: 336-841-9259 (please have the student’s ID number when calling to make payment) Student Accounts accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express.  There will be an additional transaction fee (2.75%) when using this method of payment. No eCheck over the phone.

*Please note HPU ID# on all checks

Please keep a few things in mind:

1. The housing deposit is not an extra fee – it will be applied to tuition for the fall 2020 semester. (This deposit is refundable through May 31, 2020).

2. The housing deposit needs to be paid separately from any tuition payments. Due to the overwhelming demand to attend High Point University, all campus housing will be completely full again this year and registration slots for classes will be at a premium. In order to fairly accommodate all students, your housing and course registration cannot be assured if your bill is not paid in full by the tuition payment deadline.

3. Any student that is not registered for classes for the 2020 fall semester by the end of April, will be removed from housing, and will be assigned to what rooms are available after they have registered for classes.

4. Any student that has an outstanding balance on their account on the first due date of fall bills will be removed from housing. A student will be assigned to what rooms are available after their account is cleared.

5. This deposit does not apply to any student that will be commuting.

6. Any student that is academically ineligible at the end of the Spring 2020 will be removed from housing and classes if they are not registered for Summer Session 1 or Summer Session 2 by June 15th by 5pm EST.

7. If a student is opting to live off campus, please know that we require all of our students to reside on campus until they have reached senior status in completed credit hours, or commute from their parent’s permanent address. Any student considering living off campus, must complete the Off Campus Contract located on the Housing Portal.

8. Housing deposits are only refundable through May 31, 2020, and your request must be made in writing. First Year student requests should be sent to your admissions counselor. Please be aware that if you request a refund of your housing deposit, refunds will not be processed until after June 1, 2020. Upperclassmen requests should be sent to:
