Reservation and Acceptance Fee

Once you have received your acceptance letter to RDP Residence, a reservation and acceptance fee is required to reserve your unit before you arrive. This fee will be applied to your Residence fees upon check-in to Residence. Once you have your acceptance letter, the faster you get your reservation and acceptance fee the better.

Payment of your Reservation and Acceptance Fee must be done online through your Residence Portal account.


  • General resident $500

Family Tenants - Security Deposit

After you have been accepted to live in Residence, family tenants must provide a reservation deposit to reserve your unit before you arrive. Once you check-in to Residence this reservation deposit will act as your Security Deposit.

Please follow the guidelines included in your acceptance letter for methods of payment.


  • Family Tenant reservation and security deposit: $700

Residence Rental Agreement

Once you have been accepted into RDP Residence for any period of time (a full or partial academic year, summer accommodation, etc.) all types of students, upon arrival, must sign the Residence Rental Agreement Lease. The Residence Rental Agreement is a binding legal document and the signee must regard it in such a manner. As the Residence Lease is a binding document, it is followed very closely and referred to throughout your stay here, so please read it carefully when signing. If, when arriving, you are under 18 years of age, you must have a parent or legal guardian with you to sign the rental agreement lease.
