What do I need to do to remove my Housing Hold?
All students who are considered to be freshman academically are required to live in University Housing. You must complete your application, including the Room Reservation Fee, or complete an exemption form and have your exemption form approved in order to remove this Housing Hold. Find the exemption form here: https://www.thomasu.edu/uploads/documents/request-exemption-form.pdf
What is the deadline to apply for on-campus housing?
Thomas University does not have an official deadline for on-campus housing. The sooner you apply, the better chance that Housing and Residence Life can accommodate your preferences, the sooner your Housing Hold will be removed and the earlier you can register for classes.
What is a Room Reservation Fee?
A room reservation fee of $300 is to be submitted by all incoming students. This fee requests a space in student housing. It is credited to the students’ room and board charges for the semester when the student is assigned and moves on campus.
How will I be assigned a roommate?
The Office of Residence Life assigns roommates based on the room/ roommate preferences. You are able to request a roommate on your Housing Application. If you do not have a room mate preference we will choose a room mate for you. Residence Life does our best to match students with similar student profiles.
If I decide I do not want to live in University Housing, how do I cancel my application and receive a refund for the Room Reservation Fee?
Send a notification email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will cancel your application. Please note that if you submit the cancellation before July 1, you will receive you Room Reservation Refund. All other cancellations submitted after July 1, will fall subject to our cancellation policy.
What is the cancellation policy?
For new students requesting a release for fall and spring semester:
If the Office of Residence Life receives from an incoming student written notification of cancellation for Fall Semester postmarked on July 1 or earlier, the room reservation fee of $300 will be refunded. Cancellations received after July 1and prior to the first day of class will result in the forfeiture of the $300 room reservation fee. If the student cancels within 21 days of the first days of classes, they are responsible for the full semester amount. If the student cancels after the 21 day period, they will be responsible for the full semester amount and a $750 cancellation fee.
For returning students requesting a release for fall and spring semester:
Returning students cancelling between July 1 and the first Friday of classes will be charged a $500 cancellation fee. If the student cancels within 21 days of the first days of classes, they are still responsible for the full semester amount. If the student cancels after the 21 day period, they will be responsible for the full semester amount and a $750 cancellation fee.
No cancellation fee will be charged if canceling for the following reasons: 1) graduation; 2) transfer from the university; 3) marriage.
If you are transferring from the university, you must provide proof that you have enrolled in another institution. The student must provide an official transcript dated after the official census date of the institution to which you are transferring.
