Incentives Available for Living in Joyner in Fall 2019

Are you planning on graduating in December 2019, planning to study abroad, do some field work, or complete an internship for Spring 2020? If you answered “YES” to any of these, then do we have a deal for you! Even if you answered “NO”, you may consider this offer.

For the upcoming 2019/2020 academic year, Joyner Hall will not be available during room selection. We plan to only assign students in Joyner for the fall 2019 semester. Starting January 2020 and ending June 2020, we will close Joyner Hall to complete a renovation project. With this project, we will remove the window units and install a new central heating and air conditioning system throughout the entire building, convert the corridor hall style bathrooms to single-use bathroom suites, and create a new community lounge space. The project will also involve converting some double rooms into single rooms as well.

In order to make all of this possible, we have to close the entire building at the end of the Fall 2019 semester. The scope of this project does not allow the renovation to be completed over the summer months alone. For those of you that answered “yes” to our original question above, you and Joyner Hall may be a great match. If you answered “no”, we hope that you would consider choosing Joyner Hall given some of the incentives we are offering below.

  • A one-time credit of $400 applied to your fall rent
    • This is great if you plan to graduate Fall 2019, study abroad Spring 2020, or are just looking for a way to save a little money on your room rent
  • Those living in Joyner for Fall 2019, and continuing to live on-campus for Spring 2020
    • Priority room reassignment for Spring 2020
      • With hundreds of spring vacancies, we will have plenty of space to reassign you to and you will have the first pick at those vacancies. We cannot guarantee that we will have space for both roommates in the same room but will try to assign roommates in close proximity to one another.
    • No matter what the assignment, we will only charge the rate of a double room
      • If you want that space in Ram Village, you can have it and only pay the rate of a double room. That’s nearly $800 in savings!
    • Moving Assistance
      • We will provide moving supplies for you to pack up your items before you depart for winter break.
      • Professional movers will move your items over the winter break holiday to your new spring assignment.
    • Priority Room Selection for Fall 2020
    • Priority for Joyner Hall once it re-opens in Fall 2020
