Placements are made on a first-come first-served basis until we reach capacity. After June 1, please call to check availability as dorm spaces may be filled.

A $50 refundable cash deposit (no checks) will be due at registration for library card, meal card, and keys. Deposits will be returned once all library charges and room charges are cleared, generally in two to three weeks after the conclusion of the UTNIF camps, but we can not guarantee a return until we have been able to process all bills from library and the dormitories.
