Leave of Absence

office of residential life

Students living on-campus who intend to leave housing or students with a tentative or reserved housing assignment who no longer require housing must submit a Leave of Absence form on the Agora Portal (under the "My Res Life" link) to officially notify the Office of Residential Life of their intention to leave housing or not live on-campus. Every student submitting a leave of absence form should carefully review our Housing Cancellation Fee and Refund Policy

Students who take a leave of absence from housing are not guaranteed a specific room assignment upon return. However, preferences will be honored whenever possible. Students taking a leave of absence from the college will be required to submit a housing appeal form once they have been readmitted as a full-time day student. Please contact placement@bc.edu with any questions.


 

A Leave of Absence is Complete When:

  • A housing leave of absence form has been electronically submitted to the Office of Residential Life via the Agora portal.
  • If you are currently living on-campus, all personal belongings and unwanted items have been properly removed from the student's housing assignment and any issued keys have been returned directly to the Residential Life central office.

A leave of absence between the first and fifth week of classes for students no longer enrolled will be in accordance with the University refund schedule, as published in the Conditions for Residency. No refund is possible after the fifth week of classes.

 

Please Note: If you are a three-year housing guarantee student, you are required to live off campus during your junior year. A leave of absence in any other year cannot be substituted for your mandatory junior year off-campus.
