This cancellation policy applies to "current students" which we define as a student who is/was enrolled at UNC at the time of signing a housing contract for the following academic year, regardless of whether they lived on or off campus at the time of signing the contract.
Cancel in Writing
To cancel your Housing Contract, you must do so in writing. Notifying other University departments cannot effect cancellations. You may cancel your Housing Contract by emailing the Department of Housing and Residential Education at email@example.com (recommended) or by faxing a letter to 919-962-1006.
The cancellation penalties increase as you approach occupancy:
If you cancel your Housing Contract because you are leaving Chapel Hill to pursue a study abroad program or off-campus internship, you will not be subject to cancellation penalties. However, it is still required that you submit a written cancellation notice to the Housing Office, accompanied by a copy of your program's acceptance letter.
If you defer payments through Financial Aid, you are responsible for any cancellation penalties assessed. Typically, Financial Aid does not cover cancellation penalties; therefore, students are individually responsible for assessments made to the student account.
