During the application process, the Campus Living Office will offer the applicant a room placement and the applicant secures the room by paying the residence deposit.
Once a student moves in, this deposit is held to cover the cost of any cleaning and repairs to the room. It is also held if a resident is evicted or elects to terminate their contract early.
Residence Deposit Refund
Only after the completion of a resident contract does the deposit become refundable. Provided the deposit has not been forfeited, it will be refunded less the costs of cleaning or repairing the room during the contract period.
