Housing Contract Cancellation Request

A Housing Contract Cancellation Request is for those students who have signed a 1-year or 2-year housing contract and are requesting to cancel that contract for a specific reason.

  • Due to changes as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), any student who signs a housing contract for academic year 2020-2021 will have until your move-in day to cancel without penalty.
  • Outside of this time, if you wish to cancel your housing contract you must submit that request through the Housing Contract Cancellation Request Form.
  • The housing contract is strictly adhered to with exceptions made only under extenuating circumstances.
  • The University will only release a student from contractual financial obligation for the reasons listed on the Housing Contract Cancellation Form.
  • To review what documentation is required to cancel a contract go to the Housing Contract Cancellation Request link on the Housing Portal.
  • If you have previously signed a two-year housing contract, for academic year 2020-2021 you will not be required to live on-campus for the second year.
  • Students, who wish to cancel their housing contract may do so by submitting a Housing Contract Cancellation Request form through the Housing Portal.
