If I cancel my housing license agreement for 2020-2021, will there be a penalty?
You may cancel your 2020-2021 housing assignment on or before August 28 without penalty.* If you are seeking to cancel your assignment after August 28, HRS requires 30 days’ advance notice prior to your scheduled move-in day. Residents cannot defer their license agreement to a future semester, however, they will be eligible to participate in future allocation and waiting list processes, which occur every semester.
HRS will remain as flexible as possible to accommodate graduate students’ housing needs. If circumstances associated with the COVID-19 pandemic alter students’ plans or prevent students from returning to campus through no fault of their own (i.e. travel or visa restrictions), HRS will work with students on a case-by-case basis and will waive any cancellation fees associated with their 2020-2021 on-campus housing license agreements. We will continue to work with the International Students Office to support international students’ housing needs.
*Students with a housing assignment in Eastgate Apartments may cancel their 2020-2021 housing assignment at any time 5 days prior to the scheduled move-in day without penalty.
