Whatever one’s rationale and/or reason, the deadline for current and incoming students to cancel an existing housing contract is Monday, July 31, 2017.
Barring any outstanding balance on the student’s account, all eligible* cancellations received on or before July 31 will receive a full refund of the initial $150 housing deposit. Students cancelling to commute are not eligible to receive a refund of the housing deposit. Please note that cancelling your housing for Fall 2017 also cancels your housing for Spring 2018.
