Room and Board Rates

2015-2016 Welcome to Residential Life at Fontbonne University

Reasonable consideration is given to the student's request for specific accommodations, room and roommate. However, the application contract is for space in university housing, not for a particular building, floor, room or roommate. Pricing is based on room size, occupancy, and bathroom accommodations. When necessary, placement in a triple room or on a wait list is possible. Your housing assignment is not final until approval from Financial Aid is received. If approval is not received by July 1, the resident loses priority status for room selection preference. We encourage you to retain a copy of your complete housing application contract for your record.

Housing contracts and costs are for a full academic year.

Resident Meal Plans

It is important to us to provide residents with appetizing meals that meet your nutritional needs.

Two food venues are available: Ryan Hall Cafeteria located on first floor of Ryan Hall and the Griffin Grill in the Dunham Student Activity Center (DSAC). Learn more about our meal plans and how they work.

Our breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus are available online beginning in the fall.

Resident students living in Medaille and St. Joseph Halls are required to have a meal plan. Residents can choose from 3 Traditional Plans (19, 14 or 10 meals per week) or 3 Block Plans (170 meals, 145 meals, or 115 meals per semester). If you do not specify a meal plan, the 14 meal plan is automatically assigned to Medaille and St. Joseph residents only. All change requests must be in writing. No changes are accepted by phone.

Griffin Bucks

Commuters, Faculty & Staff, and even Residents can participate!

Griffin Bucks - use in Griffin Grill and Ryan Dining Hall. Add money on your student account in the business office. Each additional $25 applied to your account receives a 10% bonus to the total. Griffin Bucks balance carries over from the fall semester to the spring semester but not from spring to the following fall. Griffin Bucks accounts are closed on the last Friday before the spring semester ends. Balances are not refundable, use it or lose.

All On Campus residents can use this in addition to their meal plan but it does not replace the meal plan.

Great for Off Campus residents in Southwest and Cotta Halls where meal plans are not required.

To check your account balance, Food service or the Business office can assist you. To add money to your account, you or resident parents can contact the Business office at 314-889-1405 Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

You are responsible for reporting a lost or stolen Fontbonne ID card with Griffin Bucks dollars to Student Affairs, 889-1411. Fontbonne University assumes no financial liability for a lost or stolen card.
