Housing and Conference Non-University Differential Rates

Non-University Differential (NUD) rates For Fiscal Year 2020-2021

Effective July 1, 2020 all housing rates increased by 3%

  • Per UC policy, University-approved recharge rates include a Non-University Differential (NUD)* for all non-University users for the use of facilities, resources and/or services that operate as self-supporting activities.
  • The NUD is a component of the University’s federally negotiated indirect cost rate and is applied to recover indirect costs incurred by BML when providing services to non-University users. The NUD is derived from the Total Facilities and Administration Cost Rate (F&A) charged to sponsors of contracts and grants.
  • Components that are not typically utilized by outside clients, including Library, Sponsored Project Administration, and Equipment, are deducted from the F&A to arrive at the NUD.
