Students are committing to a lease agreement when accepting their room offer. Students who choose to withdraw will be held financially responsible.

Improper notification regarding the cancellation of your Residence Contract will in most cases result in incurring further Residence charges and/or penalties.

Messaging regarding room offers, reminders etc. is sent via email and it is the responsibility of the student to make sure they 1) are checking their email and 2) have updated the Residence Office with the most current contact information.
