Students who are wanting to cancel their Fall 2014-Spring 2015 housing application should do so by filling out the application titled "I Want To Cancel My Fall 2014/Spring 2015 Housing Contract". You can access this application by going to www.rowan.edu/selfservice and clicking on MyHousing and Apply online. A staff member will be in contact with you via your Rowan email address within 2 business days of your request being submitted. You will be informed if your request has been approved or not as well as any cancellation fees that may apply.

Cancellation Policy

The Terms and Conditions of the university housing contract stipulate that the contract is for the entire academic year. Under this contract, students are financially obligated to the contract until a request to cancel is approved by the University.

The deadline to request to cancel with no penalty is five (5) business days after the student selects a space during room selection, or the University notifies the student of a confirmed housing assignment. Freshmen and Sophomores who are subject to the mandatory housing policy are not eligible to cancel unless they will be commuting from the home of their parent or legal guardian and submit the required “Statement of Student Residence” form. After the deadline, cancellations are subject to the following cancellation fees.
