On-Campus Housing & Meals
Spring 2016 Applicants:
Campus housing is not guaranteed, but may still be available in the
university residence halls for Spring 2016. Please indicate your interest on the IELP
Application form. IELP will share your housing request with the CCSU
Residence Life Office.

Residence Life Page.
NOTE: On-campus housing is always limited during the fall
semester. Therefore, applicants must register early. Generally
only students who register for the entire fall semester (16 weeks) are
eligible for on-campus housing. Students who come Fall II (October) and
the Spring II (March), sessions are allowed to live on campus for eight
weeks. Although chances of getting housing during the spring are better,
applicants are still advised to register early.
Campus Meal Plans: All
residence hall students are required to purchase a meal plan during the
fall and spring sessions. Note: IF YOU LIVE ON CAMPUS FOR FEWER THAN 16-WEEKS,
YOU MUST PURCHASE THE 19-MEAL PER WEEK PLAN. OTHERWISE, YOU MAY CHOOSE
FROM SEVERAL AVAILABLE MEAL PLANS. Meals are served in the Memorial Hall
Cafeteria. There is no food service during major University holidays or
breaks. In the summer, you can eat in the campus cafeteria Monday through
Friday or at restaurants near the campus seven days a week. Applicants
should declare room and board needs on their application.
IELP is happy to supply information about off-campus housing opportunities, but we
cannot guarantee off-campus
housing and we are not authorized to enter into rental agreements on behalf of students.
Students are ultimately responsible for finding and securing their own off-campus housing. A list of alternative living options within easy
distance to campus are available on this page: Off Campus Housing Information. You can also search for apartments throughout New Britain at on the website Apartmentlist.com. Also, the Trulia Website provides information about local rentals, and a Guide to Renting Apartments in the US.
