Confirmation Deposit Refunds

Confirmation Deposit refunds are subject to the following refund policies.

Applicants, please take note of the following points before a Residence Cancellation Form is submitted:  

  1. Upon request, Residence Services is able to transfer applications from one application period to the next (e.g., Fall 2017 can be transferred to Winter 2018).  If applicants would like to discuss their options and/or they have questions regarding transferring an application, they are to make direct contact with our Housing Manager.
