D. All payments made after the due date will be assessed a $50.00 administrative late charge.

E. Rate tables include the nonrefundable fee for membership in the Interhall Council (IHC).  The fee is $45.00 for the academic year and $15.00 for the summer session.  Membership fees are used for community programming, recreation equipment, and social events.

The establishment and adjustment of all fees administered by University Housing Services is governed by Executive Order 740 of The California State University.  This executive order can be found at:  http://www.calstate.edu/EO/.

As these fees are specific and apply only to students that live in housing provided by University Housing Services, and do not apply to commuting students or those living in other on-campus housing, Cal Poly Pomona chooses to conduct the required consultation and consideration of housing fee adjustments with the Interhall Council (IHC).  IHC is the resident student government and as such, is the sanctioned voice and leadership for students living on campus in University Housing Services.

The Executive Director of University Housing Services has responsibility for preparing recommendations for housing fee adjustments to the Interhall Council, including all documentation and financial information to support these recommendations.  Consultation with the Interhall Council occurs at two levels:  first with the IHC Executive Leadership, then with the full Council.

After completion of the consultation process with Interhall Council, the recommendation for adjustment of any or all of the housing fees is forwarded by the Executive Director of University Housing Services to the President of Cal Poly Pomona for approval.  A representative of Interhall Council holds a permanent seat on the Campus Fee Advisory Committee and has responsibility for providing information on the consultation process that occurred with that Committee.

Additional Information Regarding Fees Associated With UHS:

  • Board Fee (Meal Plan):  The Board Fee is established by the Cal Poly Pomona Foundation, Inc., through their Board of Directors.  While this fee is not governed by Executive Order 740, the same consultation process through the Interhall Council is conducted before the fee is considered for adjustment.
  • Interhall Council Fee:  This fee to residents for programmatic support is established by the Interhall Council in accordance with the By-Laws of the Associated Students, Inc.

2. Payment Options

All residents are enrolled in the Semester Installment option. If a resident wishes to enroll in the Full Contract payment option, they will need to email housing@cpp.edu requesting this with their full name and ID number.

Fees will be posted once per semester, with 3 installment* dates per semester. A $10 administrative fee is added to Spring Semester fees. (*Late assignments will have only 2 installments for Fall semester)


This plan is designed for students who wish to pay the full amount of the contract and not have the worries of making payments throughout the year.  Students who choose this option will not have administrative fee added as with the Semester Installment plan.
