ALL-INCLUSIVE RATES

Webster’s Room & Board rates are all-inclusive* and billed bi-weekly (every other week) after the guest’s first 4-week stay.

  • During the application process, the applicant’s GROSS annual income is verified by recent pay stubs (or, offer letter for new job offers only), and the room and board rate is established using the salary scale below.
  • The guest’s room & board rate will remain in effect until Webster’s annual eligibility audit where guests are required to provide another copy of recent pay stubs.
  • At that time, guest rates are subject to change based on the guest’s current salary and/or a cost of living adjustment.
  • *Air conditioner rentals which include the window unit rental, installation and electric are available for the time period of 5/17/21 through 9/30/21 for a flat rate.  Guests who wish to have an AC that are checking in prior to August 1, 2021 will pay $220 and guests checking in after August 1, 2021 will pay $110 regardless of their check-in date.  Rates are not prorated to guest’s actual check-in date.  Requests to rent an air conditioner may be made during the application process, or, at any time throughout the guest’s stay.
