The annual housing agreement is a contract for housing for the full academic year which cannot be cancelled to reside off campus. Although you are not required to live here, you are financially responsible for the cost of housing and the meal plan for both semesters.
Please be aware that the following reasons will be considered for cancellation of the housing contract: withdrawal from the University, reduction to less than 6 credits, studying abroad, student teaching or a university internship that eliminates the need for on campus housing. In extreme cases, the committee will consider significant unforeseen extenuating financial or medical reasons.
In all cases, if you choose to request a housing cancellation you must provide supporting documentation that shows proof of your extenuating circumstances.
Forms will not be submitted to the committee without explanation and documentation.
Please keep in mind that submitting a cancellation request does not guarantee approval.
If you feel that you meet the requirements for a housing cancellation, please e-mail our office at firstname.lastname@example.org
