The housing contract requires students to stay in University Housing for both semesters unless they are leaving or withdrawing from the University. All students who wish to terminate their housing contract must complete the Application to Terminate Housing* Contract for the Housing Contract Review Board to consider. (Students leaving/withdrawing from YSU still need to fill out the Application to Terminate Housing Contract).
The Housing Contract Review Board has been established to allow students who have legitimate reasons (such as medical issues or documented financial hardship) to move out of housing by allowing their contract to be terminated. Students are asked to provide verification supporting their application.
If a student plans on remaining enrolled at YSU, but would like to submit an Application to Terminate Housing Contract for the Housing Contract Review Board to consider, s/he needs pick up a form from the Office of Housing & Residence Life, fill it out, and turn it in with supporting documentation.
Any student who is approved will be billed according to the following schedule:
Cancellation before Fall Move-In Date: 100% Refund of Room & Board Fees
Cancellation before the end Week 1 of the semester: 80% Refund of Room & Board Fees
Cancellation before the end of Week 2 of the semester: 60% Refund of Room & Board Fees
Cancellation before the end of Week 3 of the semester: 40% Refund of Room & Board Fees
Cancellation before the end of Week 4 of the semester: 20% Refund of Room & Board Fees
Cancellation after Week 5 of the semester: 0% Refund of Room & Board Fees
If a student leaves University Housing without being released by the Housing Contract Review Board, their housing contract will be enforced. This means they will be billed for room and board charges through spring semester.
