Residence Hall Applications and Contracts may be canceled before May 1st (returning students) and June 1st (new students) without penalty. Applications are automatically canceled on May 1st/June 1st if the first room and board payment have not been received by the University. If you cancel your application after May 1st (returning students) and June 1st (new students) for fall semester or after December 10 for the spring semester cancellation charges will apply.
If you cancel your housing contract after moving in, you will be charged an early termination fee of $750. You can cut this fee to $500 by giving two weeks’ (charge weeks) cancellation notice and by checking out properly with Campus Life. Anyone leaving the residence halls within the last two weeks of a semester will pay for the remainder of the semester.
There are three exceptions to this policy. These apply to students who are withdrawing from school (except for disciplinary reasons), graduating, or for students who are exempted by the Director of Campus Life and Laker Success for financial or medical reasons.
If you need to withdraw from school for any reason, be sure to complete the checkout procedure and check with the Registrar’s Office for the procedure for dropping classes. Campus Life handles all withdrawals from University housing.
To request special accommodations, in addition to filling out the housing application, it is required that you register with the LSSU Office of Accessibility Services. The coordinator of the Accessibility Services will verify your disability and advise housing staff of appropriate accommodation. Housing staff will facilitate the housing accommodation based on application date and availability. Questions about accessible student housing may be directed to Sharmay Wood, Director of Campus Life and Laker Success.
