Undergraduate Housing Cancellation

Eligibility to Request Cancellation

Before reading the details below about housing cancellations, please confirm your eligibility to submit a request:

  • All incoming first-year students are required to live on campus for their first two years.
  • All incoming transfer students are required to live on campus for their first year.
  • Students who participate in University-sponsored programs (such as internships and Study Abroad), or who request a leave of absence, will be required to fulfill the two-year residency requirement upon their return to campus.
  • Third-year and fourth-year students who have fulfilled the requirement are eligible to cancel their housing contracts prior to selecting a room during the returning student room selection process.

Cancellation Requests

Incoming first-year and transfer students as well as rising second-year students may submit a Housing & Dining Accommodation Request through this online form.

Students eligible to cancel their housing contract (rising third- and fourth-year students) can request to do so via this online form. Submitting a cancellation request is not an automatic release from your contract, nor does it guarantee a release. Each request is reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Before submitting a request, students should review our housing cancellation policy.

If approved, and depending upon your cancellation request’s submission date, you may be responsible for a cancellation fee and/or a portion if not the entirety of the contracted rate.


Fees During the Academic Year

In addition to prorated nightly fees, all cancelled contracts will be assessed a $300 cancellation fee.
