Yes. If you receive financial aid, you can use it to help pay for on and off-campus housing.
Apply for federal financial aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid at FAFSA.gov.
If you are at Lynx Crossing: Your costs will be billed to your student account. After completing a housing contract, you will receive an email from Financial Aid confirming an adjustment to your estimated cost and a revised financial aid award letter.
If you are renting off-campus: You will be responsible for paying rent monthly to your off-campus unit and you may be able to use your financial aid to pay for the rent cost, if you receive a refund. Any aid you have accepted for the semester will pay through your student account at the beginning of the term. Once financial aid has paid to your student account, you may have a remaining balance which will be distributed as a refund and you can use to pay for off campus housing. We suggest including your rent payments (per month) in your cost of attendance each semester.

You may need to accept some or all of the loans offered to help with costs of living. The best way to determine this is to compare your estimated costs for tuition, fees, and housing for the year with the financial aid you have available. If the financial aid you have available for the year (not counting work-study funding or loans) is enough to cover the estimated tuition, fee and housing costs for the year then you may not need loans. If the estimated costs are higher than your estimated financial aid, then you may consider accepting loans to help pay the difference. To accept loans, you can click on the Award Info tab on the Financial Aid Menu in the Student Hub. Also keep an eye-out for informational emails to help you through the loan process.
This will depend on your situation.
All situations can vary but this is a range you can expect.
