Reminder: Please carefully review our Housing Cancellation Fee and Refund Policy.

 

Forced Triple Rebate:

For the fall semester, forced triple rebates are issued during the second week of classes. This rebate is issued to all students living in forced triples by the end of the first week of classes. The rebate is 1/3 of the cost of traditional style housing.

For the spring semester, forced triple rebates are issued after the 10th week of classes. Before the 10th week, the rebate is prorated by the number of weeks of living in a forced triple room. For example, if three students lived in a forced triple room for four weeks of the second semester, then they will receive four weeks worth of the rebate. If students lived in the forced triple all 10 weeks, then they receive the full rebate, which is again, 1/3 of the cost of traditional housing.

Students Moving In

 

Housing Cancellation Fee and Refund Policy:

The following policy took effect on June 1st, 2017.  The goals of the policy are to encourage students planning to live off-campus to notify Residential Life of their intention to do so earlier so that more students seeking on-campus housing can be accommodated, to maximize the use of Boston College's university housing, and to ensure that students utilizing university housing are being charged appropriately.

In order for a student to cancel their university housing, they need to fill out a Leave of Absence (from Housing) form.  The Leave of Absence form can be found on the Agora Portal, under My ResLife and then Web Forms.  Visit our Leave of Absence page for more details.


 

Refund Policy for Undergraduate Students No Longer Enrolled:

For undergraduate students studying abroad or no longer enrolled at the University (e.g. withdraw, transfer, leave of absence, academic dismissal, conduct suspension):

  • » Full refund any time before the start of the semester.
  • » Regular tuition refund schedule applies to housing during the semester.

 

Refund Policy for Undergraduate Students Remaining Enrolled:

For students withdrawing or leaving housing but remaining enrolled at the University (e.g. move off-campus) and not participating in an approved study abroad program:

Fall Semester Cancellation Fee Schedule:

  • » Full refund until May 31.
  • » 20% room rate cancellation fee between June 1 and July 14.
  • » 40% room rate cancellation fee between July 15 and Fall semester move-in day.
  • » No refund applied after Fall semester move-in day.

Spring Semester Cancellation Fee Schedule:

  • » Full refund until October 31.
    » 20% room rate cancellation fee between November 1 and November 30.
    » 40% room rate cancellation fee between December 1 and Spring semester move-in day.
    » No refund applied after Spring semester move-in day.

 

Exemptions and Appeals:

Students who receive on-campus housing within the refund periods will have 72 hours from receiving their assignment to withdraw and receive a full refund.  After 72 hours, the housing refund schedule would apply.

Students charged a cancellation fee or not receiving a refund will have the ability to appeal.  Appeals must be made in writing and received within 15 days of submission of the housing cancellation.  Requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by an ad hoc committee appointed by the Associate Vice President of Student Affairs.
