The housing contract is binding for the academic year.
It is important to understand what you are agreeing to when making the commitment to live on campus. All students residing in on campus housing are strongly encouraged to read and understand all policies and resources. This includes rights and responsibilities, damage billing, and housing policies.
Housing Contract Releases
Students graduating in December or participating in an approved off-campus program (for example, Study Abroad) are automatically released from the contract. All other requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and releases are granted only in exceptional circumstances. Students requesting a release from the housing contract without any penalties for the 2018-2019 academic year must submit the Housing Contract Release Request Form by 4:00 p.m. on May 1. This policy is also in effect for students wishing to commute, transfer, withdraw, or take a leave of absence.
Requests can also be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or delivered to Glendening Hall 150. This policy is also in effect for students wishing to commute, transfer, withdraw, or take a leave of absence.
Fees are assessed as follows:
- Cancellations between May 2 – June 30 will be assessed 10% of the housing fee.
- Cancellations between July 2 – August 26 will be assessed 20% of the housing fee.
After the start of the semester, students will be responsible for the entire cost of their semester housing.
