FOR NEW INCOMING FRESHMEN AND TRANSFERS entering for the Spring 2019 or Fall 2019- your housing fee is included in the Advanced Registration Deposit.  Eligible students, students who have paid their $275 advanced registration deposit, can begin completing their roommate profile, after receiving their My College Roomie introductory e-mail in their KU student e-mail account. Beginning November 1st, 2018, introductory e-mails will be sent to all new students after they have paid their ARD. New students can anticipate receiving that e-mail 3-5 business days after their deposit is received.

5. The payment vendor page will ask you to select either an e-check payment or a credit card payment.  

  • Complete your payment information thoroughly.  Please be sure that the numbers you are entering are correct, and in the correct field, otherwise, your payment will not go through properly. 
  • If you are using the E-Check option (ACH debit from checking or savings account) and you do not put the appropriate numbers in the appropriate fields, your payment will be returned or refused by your bank.  This will result in a Returned Deposited Item fee of $25.00 being assessed.  There is no processing fee for this payment method if processed successfully.
  • If you are using the Credit Card option please note the following accepted credit cards: Mastercard, Discover, Visa and American Express.  PLEASE NOTE: There is a non-refundable 2.75% processing fee assessed and retained by the credit card processor.  This will show as two transactions so be sure you have enough credit or funds available to cover both the $75 and the credit card fee ($77.07)
