Residence Halls

Each Residence Hall at Idaho State University has a Residence Director (a full-time professional staff member) who supervises hall staff and oversees hall operation. Each hall also houses trained student staff members who serve as Resident Assistants and Safety Assistants.

At least one staff member is on-call 24 hours a day to assist with any problems.

Hall residents below junior class level (freshmen and sophomores) are required to have a residential meal plan. Meal plans are not required for Schubert Heights residents.

Business majors are invited to participate in our College of Business Residential College in Dyer Hall.  Students living in this community have regular and direct contact with faculty members from the College of Business at a variety of events, including monthly open houses and advising opportunities in the residence hall. If you are interested in joining this community, please select South Complex on your application.

Payment Policy

Residence hall and meal plan payments are due by the dates as established in the tuition and fee schedule for ISU, unless the resident is paying through ISU's installment loan program.

Please see our payment plan information and instructions for details on affordable payment plans, also referred to as installment loans.

For students not using the installment loan program, a $50 late fee is assessed on amounts not paid by Monday of the first week of classes each semester. An additional $50 late fee is assessed if fees are not paid by the tenth day of classes.

Late fees will only be waived upon approval of the Director of Housing.

During the second week of the semester, no-shows and meal plans will be processed and charges will be adjusted accordingly.

Payment plans may be accepted, but only when all awarded financial aid has been exhausted, including Pell grants, scholarships, subsidized loans, unsubsidized loans, Parent Plus loans, etc.

If the meal plan is not paid in full, and the student is not using an ISU installment loan, the meal plan will be deactivated until paid in full. The full meal plan price must be paid whether the meal plan is active or inactive.

If housing and/or meal plan charges are not paid in full by the time they are due, and no payment arrangements have been made, action may be taken up to and including eviction.

* These rates are the proposed 2015-2016 academic year rates. Rates are tentative until approved by the Idaho State Board of Education.
Each rate for the residence halls is a semester charge.
Each rate for the apartments is a monthly charge.
