Q: Cost wise, how do the apartments compare to the halls?
The similarity in cost may surprise you! Per semester, a traditional residence hall double plus the core meal plan actually costs a little bit more than a double room in a 6-person Gables apartment and the largest swipe meal plan! If you would rather do more of your own cooking, meal plans are optional for apartment residents. Add in free break housing and the savings go up.
Q: I currently live in the on-campus apartments but I don’t have a full apartment group? It’s just me, or just me and a friend or two.
If you have less than a full-group (say just you or just you and one or two friends) and are hoping to secure a space within an apartment, our Call Dibs process will allow you to complete the application, form your group, and you'll be manually assigned by our amazing staff person, Kristen Bellio, the On-Campus Apartment Coordinator (Kristen.Bellio@unh.edu or 603.862.1754). Kristen will work with you to ensure that you are assigned to an apartment space with other partial groups. So even if you don't have a full group, there's a great opportunity for you to get an wonderful assignment at the on-campus apartments.
Q: Can apartments be co-ed?
Q: Are the apartments open during vacations?
Yes again! They remain open during Thanksgiving, Winter and Spring Breaks at no additional cost! You are free to come and go as you please during those break periods.
Q: Do I have to wait until the selection process opens to form my apartment group?
No, you shouldn't!!! As a matter of fact, the best course of action is to start as early as possible and get your group together and form your housing group early. That way you are prepared for the selection process when it begins!
Q: I currently live in the residence halls. What if my group and I don't snag an apartment?
You’ll be automatically added to our apartment waitlist, as we will be able to see that you indeed filed your housing applications and formed a group online. We will call your group captain if spaces open for your group members at Gables or Woodside! Last year we were able to accommodate many groups on the apartment waitlist, so stay positive! Additionally, if you have any specific questions or requests about your apartment assignment or your hope to live at Gables or Woodside next year, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Also don’t forget that in the coming months we’ll offer the opportunity for you to participate in Block Housing which gives groups of 6-12 friends the opportunity to select a block of rooms together in specific residence halls.
