HOUSING PARENT NEWSLETTER - OCTOBER 2013

OctoberParentFA13


Welcome to a NEW Academic Year!

It was only two weeks ago that the residence halls at Santa Clara University opened, just under 3,000 students moved on-campus, and a new academic year got underway! For those parents and family members receiving the Housing Parent Newsletter for the first time, we welcome you and hope you find the information shared in the monthly newsletter helpful throughout your student's first year living on-campus! For those who have previously received the newsletter, we hope the information shared provides a more comprehensive outline of the various processes and important dates pertinent to your student's continued living experience within on-campus housing!

The Housing Office is looking forward to an excellent year ahead! Please do not hesitate to contact our office if you ever have a concern or a question about a Housing Office related process!

TIPS FOR STUDENTS – HOW TO BUDGET DINING POINT SPENDING

The PACE Chart is a tool for students to monitor the use of their Dining Meal Points. A handy weekly chart is available at each cafe register for students to check their spending. Register receipts list the account balance after each purchase and students can check their balance anytime online at the ACCESS Office website. Visit our website for more resources for dining options on campus.
