Whatever one’s rationale and/or reason, the deadline for current and incoming students to cancel an existing housing contract is Tuesday, July 31, 2018.
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 2018 also cancels your housing for Spring 2019.
Should a student desire to move onto campus for Spring 2019, the student must complete a new application that will available in October 2018.
Students who cancel their housing to commute will also need to submit a “Request for Release from Housing Contract” form, available at the Forms and Publications link or in the Office of Student Housing.

Before May 1 - email firstname.lastname@example.org from your Pitt email account or stop by the Housing Office (163 Student Union)
