Paying Your Housing Fees

Paying housing fees is easy but varies among buildings.

Barringer & Orlowitz Residence Halls

Housing fees are due on the 1st of each month. Residents will not receive a bill, but please be diligent in paying on time as late fees will begin to accrue on the 10th of each month. Shortly after arrival, residents of Barringer/Orlowitz Residence Halls will receive a tenant code number in their on campus mailbox. This number should be included on all housing fee payment checks. It is important to include tenant number, name, building & room, and telephone number on the check. Barringer and Orlowitz residents can deposit their payment check in the rent drop boxes located in the front desk at the Orlowitz lobby.

Starting in the Spring of 2014, students also have the option of paying their rent online via www.rentcafe.com. Students need to register on the website first and then setup their payment information. Students can also setup reoccuring payments that will automatically be deducted for each month's rent. DHRL and PMC recommend using the student's Jefferson campus key as the username to register for the website so it is easy to remember.

Barringer and Orlowitz residents may pay rent by check or money order payable to Philadelphia Management Company. Questions regarding billing or payment plan requests may be directed to:
