University announces housing and meal plan credits for students

Recognizing many students and families make sacrifices to pursue a University of Dayton education, the University will take the following actions to reflect the shortened period of time students will use University housing and meal plans.

  • UD will issue prorated credits on student accounts for housing for the period of time students are unable to return to their campus housing. These credits will roll over to the next academic year for returning students. If the student will not be living in UD housing during the next academic year, the housing credit will be applied to tuition charges for the next academic year.  
  • For students with meal plans, balances of both the Flex and the Standard plans will roll over from this year and can be used next year. The University is waiving all current limitations on the amount that may be carried over. 
  • Those living in UD housing or using their meal plans during the extended break will not be eligible for the credit and/or roll over. 
  • Seniors graduating in May will receive a prorated housing credit on their student account as well as a credit for any remaining meal plan balance. These credits will first apply to any outstanding balance owed to the University. If the account balance is paid in full at graduation, the University will issue a refund to the student.
  • Because faculty instruction is continuing on a remote basis and students will be making progress toward completion of their academic program, no financial credit will be provided for tuition. 

If students have questions about the housing and meal plan credits, they can visit Room and Board Credit FAQs or email Flyer Student Services at

As this public health emergency is evolving, the University will continue to share information as it becomes available at The website includes previous messages to campus, including accommodations for faculty and staff to work remotely.
