Cancelling the housing application or housing is an easy process, but make sure you are informed about financial penalties and the potential to forfeit future housing guarantees before you send in your cancellation.
2018-2019 Academic Year
Beginning for the Fall 2018 academic year, a new cancellation policy will be in effect. Please visit the 2018-2019 Housing Cancellation Policy page for additional details.
Graduate students who accept on-campus housing are financially responsible for room (and board if applicable) fees for the entire academic year, or the portion of the academic year that remains at the time of occupancy. For more information, view the housing contract.
If applicable, cancellation fees are determined after the results of the community standards process. When a student is removed from housing as a result of disciplinary action the contract is terminated and no room or board fees are refunded.
Leaving the University?
Please visit the Voluntary Separation information page at the Dean of Students website for information on how to withdraw or cancel enrollment.
Process to Cancel Housing
- Financial Penalties & Housing Guarantees
Consult the On-Campus Housing Contract for information about financial penalties and housing guarantees. The following sections should be reviewed.
- Room Reservation Fee - to determine if you forfeit the Room Reservation Fee (fall semester cancellations only)
- Cancellation Fee Schedule - to determine if a financial penalty will be incurred
- Students Guaranteed Housing & Waiting List - to determine if you are/are not guaranteed housing if you return. Most students forfeit all guarantees for future on-campus housing when cancelling.
- Ask Questions!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions and include as many details/specifics as possible. Make sure you are fully informed before cancelling. Once you have information about cancellation fees and housing guarantees, if you still want to cancel your housing, please go to step 3.
- Ready to Cancel?
- Submit the Spring 2018 Housing Cancellation Application in MyHousing to cancel your future housing.
- Students who are cancelling their Fall 2017 housing must email email@example.com to indicate that they would like to cancel their housing and include the date that they will be moving out of their Fall 2017 housing assignment. Please include the 7 digit student ID number in all correspondence to assist staff.
- Confirmation Email
A confirmation email will be sent once the cancellation is processed. Didn’t get one? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure we received your request.
Room Reservation Fee
Most students who cancel after paying the non-refundable Room Reservation Fee forfeit that payment. Additional information about this fee can be found on the About the Room Reservation Fee page.
Fee Bill Updates
Fee bills are updated within 4-5 business days after the cancellation has been processed or after confirmation of move out. Fee bills are updated in accordance with the Housing Contract, University refund schedule, and after the results of the community standards process (if applicable). If paid, the $300 non-refundable Room Reservation Fee is forfeited upon cancellation of the housing assignment/application (fall cancellations only).
Undergraduate Cancellation Fee Schedule
The $300 non-refundable Room Reservation Fee (RRF) is forfeited upon release/cancellation of the contract prior to the fall semester. The reservation fee will be credited towards cancellation fees if applicable. Students who withdraw from the university or change to a regional campus will forfeit the $300 Room Reservation Fee but will not be subject to additional fees found on the cancellation fee schedule, unless the student has occupied a room for any period of time.
An undergraduate housing applicant who retains Storrs enrollment and cancels housing is subject to the following housing cancellation fee schedule. The Cancellation Fee Schedule is effective from the date of application until the date of cancellation, or the date the room is vacated, whichever is later. Meal fees will be prorated on a daily basis.
