Refund of Housing Reservation and Damage Deposit

The housing reservation and damage deposit of $200 is refundable at the end of the student’s tenure in campus housing provided no damage or loss has occurred in the student’s room, as indicated by a check-out sheet; keys have been returned; and the student has cancelled his/her housing reservation by August 1 for Fall semester and by January 1 for Spring semester.

If a student has an outstanding account balance with the University, any refundable deposit must first be applied against the student’s outstanding account.

If the student’s outstanding account balance exceeds the refundable deposit, the student will not be entitled to a refund of the deposit. Cancellation of housing by a resident during the semester forfeits the resident’s deposit.

A written request for refund must be made to the Director of Residence Life. Once the request is made the process of the refund can take up to 120 days.
