Housing Cancellation

When to do a Housing Cancellation

Housing Cancellations are submitted by students who need to cancel their housing contracts for the following reasons:

  1. Commuting - Students who currently have a booking on-campus and are not required to live on campus.*
  2. Marriage - Occuring after the start date of the housing contract.
  3. Medical Accommodation - conditions for which the University is unable to accommodate with on-campus residence.
  4. Transfer, Withdrawal, Hardship Withdrawal - Students who are transferring to another school or withdrawing (includes Student Leave of Absence and Hardship Withdrawal).
  5. Academic Internship/Exchange/Study Abroad
  6. Military Relocation

*By submitting the Housing and Residence Life online request for housing, a student or prospective student agrees that he/she intends that the electronic submission constitutes consent to sign the Housing Agreement as if they had signed in their own hand. Submission of the Housing Agreement further constitutes acceptance, acknowledgement, and the agreement to abide by the terms and conditions of this contract and it becomes a binding agreement (a legal contract) betweent the student and the University, and is considered an acceptance of an offer of housing. This contract is deemed accepted upon receipt of prepayment by the University.

How to Cancel Housing

  1. Log into the Housing Portal
  2. Select Requests
  3. Choose "Cancellation of Application/Housing" in the drop down menu
  4. Select the term session of application you are cancelling

If you are a first or second year student, freshman or sophomore under 21 years of age and seeking to commute from home after moving into on campus, please complete a Housing Exemption.

Housing Cancellation Fees and Deadlines

  • Fall Quarter - June 1 * for returning students and August 10 for new incoming students
  • Winter and Spring Quarters - new incoming students have 10 days to accept or decline their housing assignment

On or after move-in date students are responsible for the housing fee for the entire term in which the student is cancelling PLUS 50% of any remaining terms. Once a term has commenced the cancellation request may only be requested for subsequent term(s).

* Returning students cancelling their housing application are required to submit a request by June 1 of the academic year before without a $1,000 cancellation fee. For example, if you are applying for exemption for Fall 2018, the deadline to submit is June 1, 2018 (Spring Quarter 2018). After this date, the student will be responsible for the entire term in which the student is cancelling plus 50% of any remaining terms.
