Frequently Asked Questions

Housing Deposit Information

Newly-admitted residential students must pay their housing deposit through the Office of Admissions.

All other students must pay the Office of Residence Life with a $250 check or money order (credit card payments not accepted) made out to UMW with the student’s Banner ID/Student ID number (this is the number beginning with “000”) in the memo line. It should be brought to Marye House or mailed to:

UMW Residence Life
Attn: Michelle Brooks
1301 College Avenue
Fredericksburg, VA 22401

Credit cards and EagleOne Cards may not be used to pay for the housing deposit. Arrangements may be made in advance by emailing mesch@umw.edu to bring exact cash to Marye House to pay for the housing deposit.

Note:  The $250 housing deposit is held until the student departs campus housing. At that time, if there are no damages or other charges assessed on the student’s account, the Office of Student Accounts will later process a refund. Students who are approved to be released from their housing and dining services agreement forfeit their housing deposit.  Students may not complete a housing application until a housing deposit is paid and processed.
