Cancellation

Students who submit a housing agreement agree to the terms and conditions of that agreement, including the cancellation policy.

The 2020-21 housing agreement begins August 30, 2020. If a student moves in prior to this date, the housing agreement begins on the first day of occupancy. Therefore, cancellations must be received prior to the first day of occupancy. If you have further questions, please email housing@depaul.edu .

These charges apply regardless of the reason for cancellation, including students who cancel due to a withdrawal from the university, or students who are removed from campus housing or dismissed from the university for conduct or academic reasons.

A $1,500 cancellation fee will be assessed to students who cancel if they (1) are continuing students who cancel after being confirmed for campus housing and prior to the start of the term of this Agreement or first day of occupancy, whichever is earlier; or, (2) students who cancel during winter break.

A $400 cancellation fee will be assessed to students who cancel if they are (1) a first-year, non-transfer student and cancel after June 1, 2020 and prior to their scheduled move-in date or first day of occupancy, whichever is earlier; (2) a transfer student and cancel after June 1, 2020 and prior to their scheduled move-in date or first day of occupancy, whichever is earlier; (3) confirmed on or after June 1, 2020, for first-year, non-transfer students, or, confirmed on or after June 1, 2020, for transfer students and cancel prior to their scheduled move-in date or first day of occupancy, whichever is earlier.
