Will SMU reduce the Room and Board charges this fall due to the shortened in-person component of the fall semester?

Due to the length of services provided, and costs associated with delivering them, there will not be a reduction in room and board charges this fall. The residence halls and dining facilities will be available to all students from Monday, Aug. 17, through the Wednesday, Nov. 25, and after Thanksgiving depending on student circumstances. The room and board availability is similar to prior years with meal availability on Labor Day and Fall Break. In addition, the University has incurred added costs related to the COVID-19 health and safety measures necessary to deliver these services following the advice of our health professionals as well as local, state and CDC guidelines.
