Housing Billing, Deposits and Refunds

 

By submitting a room deposit for housing a student commits to a full year license agreement. Room and board charges are posted to a registered student's account on a semester basis.

On occasion, students who have been assigned to housing need to cancel their housing assignment.

 
Prior to Move In - Canceling a Housing Application

New students may request a room reservation deposit refund by submitting a request in writing by May 1 of each year to Housing & Residence Life.

New students who submit their room reservation deposit after May 1 may also cancel their deposit, however the room reservation deposit is not refundable after that date.

Returning students' room reservation deposits are non-refundable from the time they are submitted.

A student who desires to cancel their housing PRIOR to move in, must complete a Housing Cancellation form. All room and board charges (if applied) will be removed from the student account.

Refund checks are processed by Student Financial Services in Bayley Hall. The Department of Housing and Residence Life does not issue refund checks.


After Move In -  Requesting a Release of License

Once a student has moved in they are bound by the terms of the license agreement for the full academic year.  Should a need arise, students may submit a Request for Release form seeking consideration to be released. Please note, documentation is required as proof of request reason. 

Should the request be granted, room charges will be prorated based in accordance to the University's class refund schedule.  After the 6th week of the semester no portion of the charge is refunded. Meal plans (with the exception of Meal Plan 7) will be prorated on a weekly basis.

Refund checks are processed by Student Financial Services in Bayley Hall. The Department of Housing and Residence Life does not issue refund checks.
