The deadline to cancel housing without Financial Liability has passed.

If you have checked into housing, you are financially liaible for the agreement. You can no longer cancel housing. If you choose to check-out, you will remain financially liable through your housing agreement. If you have extenuating circumstances that are causing you to move out, please see the housing appeals tab to submit a financial liability appeal. You will have to provide documented proof that supports your appeal. Appeals are reviewed in 3-5 days. You can submit prior or within 30 days of moving out.

If you have not moved into housing, you can still cancel by sending an email to with subject line "Cancel Housing". Include your name, ID #, and reason for cancelling. Late cancellations are billed at minimum to the first Wednesday of the semester. If you requested a late arrival date, we will hold your space until that date or you are a confirmed no-show/late cancellation. If you then cancel, you will be billed from August 22 (Undergraduates) or August 23 (Graduates) until that late arrival date or confirmation of late cancellation/no-show.
