Graduate Housing Cancellations and Deadlines

Graduate students have a separate Housing Agreement and cancellation deadlines. University Housing is aware that there are any number of reasons that a student would need to cancel their residence hall housing assignment prior to its completion. All students wishing to cancel housing early MUST submit a Request for Release.

Students will receive an email confirmation in their Drexel email accounts once the cancellation has been processed. The Cancellation Fee for each term being cancelled is based on the date of receipt by University Housing of the Request for Release form.

Acceptable Cancellation Reasons

  • No longer attending Drexel University
  • Academic withdrawal
  • Co-op, clinical, or Rotation outside the area (for students who receive a position more than 10 miles away from the Drexel University campus)
  • Study Abroad
  • Not taking classes or not on co-op for a quarter/semester or taking a Leave of Absence

The housing deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE for all acceptable reasons, except in the cases of Co-op/Clinical and Studying Abroad. More information about Acceptable Cancellations is available here.

Unacceptable Cancellation Reasons

Students seeking to cancel their Housing Agreement for any other reason than those listed above will be subject to cancellation fees. A student's contractual obligation for another living arrangement will not be honored as a valid reason for release from this Agreement. The University strictly enforces its cancellations policies.

All students cancelling housing for an unacceptable reason will forfeit the $200 housing deposit, regardless of cancellation date. More information about Unacceptable Cancellations, including fees, is available here.
