FAQ's

I plan to apply to be an RA for 2018-2019 and the hiring process occurs during spring term. If I have not yet submitted my housing deposit and application, should I do that in February?


We are very excited that you are interested in the awesome opportunity to be an RA to enhance your leadership skills, assist fellow students, network on campus, and build your resume. But Yes, if you would like to live on campus if you are not awarded the RA position, then you should submit your materials to get on the waitlist. The RA hiring process is very competitive and since you are not 100% sure if you have the job yet or not, make sure you lick in your spot on the waitlist for next year. If you are hired, you will be refunded the $75 housing deposit and you will be assigned an RA room.


Haymarket has two contract options, correct?

Summer Rates:
o Traditional Residence Hall: $13-$16 per night
