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 Form [PDF]

Students will receive an email confirmation in their Drexel email accounts once the cancellation has been processed.

All cancellations fall into one of two categories: acceptable and unacceptable. Prior to cancelling housing, students should review the appropriate cancellation charge policy to understand the financial impact of cancelling housing. Each category has a different set of policies regarding charges/cancellations fees.

Acceptable Cancellation Reasons

  • Not attending Drexel University (includes first year students that decide not to attend Drexel after the Housing Application is submitted)
  • Academic withdrawal
  • Co-op outside the area (for students who receive a co-op more than 10 miles away from Drexel's campus)
  • Study Abroad
  • Not taking classes or not on co-op for a quarter or taking a Leave of Absence

The housing deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE for all acceptable reasons, except in the cases of Co-op and Studying Abroad.

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.
