Does Financial Aid pay for living on-campus?

The short answer is that many students will find that their Financial Aid award will adjust to help cover the cost of living on-campus.  Whether and how much your award will change depends on your personal circumstances, as described in the next paragraph.

Financial Aid applies rules from the federal government to determine a students’ financial need.  Financial Aid estimates the educational cost of attending college using a formula that includes tuition, fees, and estimated expenses (e.g. books, transportation, housing, food).  Financial Aid compares the estimated costs of attending UW Tacoma with the amount of money the federal and state governments estimate a student can contribute to their education based upon information provided in their FAFSA and/or WAFSA.   Because living-on campus may cost more than living at home, the gap between a students’ estimated educational costs and their estimated ability to pay will be greater than living at home.  Financial Aid will use available resources to try to fill that gap; those resources may include UW scholarships and grants, state funds and loans.  Our Financial Aid team works to minimize the amount of loans a student takes out;  in some situations, they are the only resources available.  Financial Aid counselors are available to meet with you and review your award if you are unsure of what types of aid you will need to cover your housing costs.

It is essential that you tell UW Tacoma’s Financial Aid Office where you plan to live in 2019-20 so your financial aid package is as accurate as possible. If you plan to live on campus, but did NOT note this on your FAFSA, contact UW Tacoma Financial Aid immediately.
