When a student receives financial aid, they are given an amount deposited into their student account at SVC. If the cost of tuition and course fees are less than the amount received from financial aid, a refund will be issued directly to the student. Students can then use this refund to pay for their CVV rent by paying online HERE, at the Cashier's office in Lewis Hall, or in the CVV office. Rent is not automatically paid by financial aid.
If you have some extra pots and pans, glasses, or utensils - bring them if possible. Your roommates may have a lot / or very little in the way of supplies. There are some thrift stores in the area that residents favor for supplies. The Mount Vernon / Burlington area boasts a wide variety of stores, either independent or within shopping malls if you favor new items.
Campus View Village maintains a "NO SMOKING" policy in all indoor areas. Residents comply with this by smoking in designated smoking areas located away from buildings. Students who wish to request roommates who are non-smokers should do so on their roommate preference form within their application. We will try to accomodate this request, if possible.
Parking is available for residents who choose to bring a vehicle with them to Campus View Village. Residents must register their vehicles with the Residence Life Office and SVC security personnel.

Annual Campus View Village parking permits are available for students at a cost of $35.00 and run from fall quarter to fall quarter.
For reasons of health and sanitation pets (of any type) are not to be kept on the premises. Students who require service or comfort animals must contact the CVV office to discuss the process for making this request.
Noise that unreasonably disrupts roommates or neighbors at any time will not be tolerated. During "Quiet Hours" noise should not be heard outside of an apartment. Quiet Hours are in place during the following times:
Residents handle the purchasing of food items in several different ways, depending on their tastes, friendships, and money situations. Some pool their money and buy items to be used in common, such as toilet paper, kitchen condiments, cleaning items and paper towels. Others take turns (a weekly rotation) when buying the common items. Some roommates make buying items a personal choice -- where indeividual students purchase these items themselves and keep them in their private bedrooms. The key to roommates "getting along well" is to make certain that no matter what system is used, each roommate understands and agrees to that system.
The Residence Life Staff suggests that residents from each apartment create a cleaning schedule that pleases all. One such proven method is to schedule a complete cleaning of the common areas once a week, for example, from 6pm to 7pm on Sunday nights. Duties for kitchen, living room and bathroom can be rotated from week to week. Bedrooms are usually cleaned at the discretion of the occupant. Roommates who create a cleaning schedule report more positive relationships with one another and a higher degree of overall satisfaction with their living conditions. Each quarter, residents at Campus View Village are expected to complete a "Roommate Agreement" as a group to ensure that communication is being maintained within the apartment and that shared standards within each apartment meet or exceed CVV expectations.
