Frequently Asked Questions

How are utilities billed?

Utilities are billed based on monthly meter readings, monthly consumption, or occasionally according to historical usage if no reading is obtained.

How do I read our utility bill?

Each billed utility service is listed by service type (i.e., water, electricity, etc.) along with the amount billed for each service. The bill lists the current and previous meter readings (if applicable), any multiplier and a percent allocation designated for each meter. If you have questions regarding your percentage allocation, contact Anissa Gahagan in the Office of the Vice President for University Operations at 512-232-7747. If you have questions regarding consumption or cost allocations, please contact Bridget Lawrence at 512-471-4646 or Adriana Rojas at 512-471-1636.

When is our bill due?

Your department or business is billed according to the terms determined at the time of account set up. In most cases, university departments are billed via an interdepartmental transfer. We strive to bill monthly, but at times it may take longer to see your charge/bill. If you have questions regarding billing, contact Bridget Lawrence at 512-471-4646.
