Discount for signing supplemental housing contract?

<p>I've heard a few rumors that if you sign a supplemental housing contract instead of a regular housing contract you get some sort of discount on housing cost? Is there any truth to this at all or is just another crazy rumor?</p>

<p>Yes, you get a discount if you are offered and are willing to accept supplemental housing. I am sure.</p>

<p>When you are initially billed for your room, you are charged the full price. When you move from supplemental you are given a 10% credit for your room. </p>

<p>If you were never offered to move to a permenant space and you stayed in supplemental all year, you are given the 10% discount upon check out.</p>

<p>This discount is taken on the room portion of your bill.</p>

<p>10% is not worth living in the supplemental housing, which are converted from study rooms. They usually house 3 or more people. 1 roommate is already enough to deal with.</p>

<p>It just depends if you want to live on campus or not. If you want to live on campus and the only space left is supplemental, then you might think this is fine.</p>
