If you want to cancel your housing assignment, you must submit a Housing Cancellation Request Form

During the fall semesters (for the upcoming spring semesters), Request Forms must be completed by December 1 to avoid the $500 cancellation fee.

During the spring semesters (for the upcoming fall semesters), Request Forms can be completed any time, but before Room Lottery Application period ends is preferred.

Please note that if you secure a room via Room Lottery and cancel the room afterwards, the $500 cancellation fee will automatically apply.

Please review the Housing Contract and Terms of Occupancy for more information.
