Withdrawal and Refund Information

If at any time you decide to decline your residence hall space, you must complete an online withdrawal form, which is sent directly to the Residential Life Office. Please note: withdrawing from the college does not automatically withdraw you from housing. See: Withdrawing from the College

If you wish to be released from your housing contract, you must complete an online housing withdrawal request. Submitting this request does not guarantee release from the Housing Contract.

Once you complete this request you will receive a confirmation email from the Residential Life Office regarding the status of your withdrawal. If you are approved for a withdrawal you will have 48 hours to vacate your space and return your key to the Residential Life Office. Housing refunds will be processed according to the refund schedule found in the Residence Contract.

Appeals to the refund policy must be submitted via the Appeal Request Form.

Students who are graduating, students enrolled in a college exchange program, or students withdrawing from the college must complete the housing withdrawal request. Questions regarding refund checks/payments should be directed to the Bursar's Office at (212) 217-3680.

Students who are already living in campus housing and are withdrawing from the residence halls MUST ADHERE to the established check-out procedure.
