All undergraduate students living in the Leo Goodwin Sr. Residence Hall, regardless of credit hours, must purchase a mandatory declining balance plan. The minimum amount a resident can apply to their NSU ID Card is $1,300 per semester. If a resident chooses to apply additional funds to their card, they are able to do so at any time.

If a balance exists on a resident's declining balance plan at the end of the fall semester, the resident's funds will roll over to the winter semester. Once the winter semester has ended, the remaining balance will no longer be available to the resident.

All rates include unlimited laundry, NSU secured wireless internet, furnishings, utilities, air conditioning, cable TV, and local telephone service. All housing and declining plan rates and configurations are subject to change.
