Understanding the Campus Center Fee

Campus Center fees include those mandatory student activity fees used to support student-governed, student-serviced, and student-administered facilities, programs, services, and activities that serve as the “living room, hearthstone, or community center” for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and guests of the campus.

Campus Center Fee


All together, these facilities, programs, services, and activities offer conveniences and amenities that campus community members desire in their daily lives and they create a focal point or gathering place where cultural, educational, social, recreational leisure, personal wellness, and physical fitness needs may be met.
