Cancellation Policy

How to Cancel

In order to cancel a Summer Housing application or room assignment, you must submit notice to Columbia Housing. You will continue to be charged for occupancy until

  1. the Housing Portal 'Cancellation' step has been completed,
  2. the premises have been vacated,
  3. the keys have been returned to the Hartley Hospitality Desk (if applicable), and
  4. you have officially checked out at the Hartley Hospitality Desk. 

A resident cancelling their Summer Housing application for any reason prior to taking occupancy will incur charges as per the cancellation chart below, in addition to the non-refundable application fee. Failure to Check-In will also result in a cancellation charge.
