Refunds: The $500 Housing Deposit is generally non-refundable unless the student is not required to live in campus housing and does not accept an offered space. If a student that is not required to live on campus requests to withdraw their housing application prior to accepting a space, the request will be approved and the deposit refunded or reallocated to the student's account.
Cancellations: Requests to cancel housing will be reviewed according to the terms of the Residence Hall and Dining Services Agreement. Approved Housing Cancellation Requests may incur a Housing Cancellation Fee per Section H of the Agreement. For cancellations made before Spring room charges are accrued, the Housing Deposit will be applied to the Housing Cancellation Fee. Entering an off-campus lease after requesting and receiving a campus housing assignment is not an accepted reason for cancellation of the Agreement. Students should review off-campus housing options before accepting a campus housing assignment.
The Priority Application Date for all spring housing applications is November 15th.
Assignments for Juniors/Seniors
Beginning in early December assignments will be made on a space available basis. An assignment will be made using the preferences listed on the Spring Only Application. However, it is possible an assignment may not be available within those preferences. Since Juniors and Seniors are not required to live on campus they will receive 2-3 business days in which to accept the offered space. Once assignments are confirmed they will be available in Cardinal Students>Student Self-Serivce>MyHousing. If the space offered is not accepted, they will have the opportunity to receive a second offer when another space becomes available. If they decline or do not respond to the second offer, they will be removed from the Waitlist.
Assignments for Freshmen/Sophomores
Beginning in early December assignments will be made on a space available basis. Since Freshmen and Sophomores are required to live on campus an assignment will be made using the preferences listed on the Spring Only Application. However, it is possible an assignment may not be available within those preferences. Once assignments are made they will be communicated via email and available at myhousing.cua.edu.
