Cancel a Housing Application

To cancel an application or decline a space, the Housing Office requires a written cancellation 30 days or more prior move-in. If the request to cancel is within this timeframe, the initial payment will be refunded less the application fee. Cancellation requests of less than 30 days may result in a notice charge being assessed to your account.

In order to receive the refund described above for the 2021-2022 application, cancellations will need to be received by:

July 15, 2021 | For applications received prior to June 15, 2021
Within 30 days of applying | For applications received on or after June 15, 2021

Upon receipt of the cancellation request, the University will return the funds in the form of a check made out to the applicant in approximately 3-4 weeks. If the student owes any fees to the University, the Bursar will deduct those fees prior to sending any remaining refund.

Please Note: If a cancellation is requested prior to paying the initial payment or if you are on the wait list, you may cancel at any time with no penalty.
