Withdrawal from Housing

If you are interested in living off campus or will be graduating, studying abroad, or taking a leave of absence you must complete the withdrawal form. If you withdraw from housing prior to the advertised deadlines, your housing deposit refund will be mailed to the address you have on file with AARC 6-8 weeks after the end of the semester. Please make sure your address is up to date. If you withdraw after the deadline, your housing deposit will be forfeited. Fill out the 2019-2020 withdrawal form here.

Students going on Study Abroad, Domestic Exchange, or Transferring

You must fill out the 2019-2020 housing withdrawal request form to inform the Office of Residence Life of your intentions. If you will not be notified of your acceptance into a program or school until after the deadline, please still fill out the form and select "pending" as the reason for withdrawal. If you are accepted to your program, a copy of your dated acceptance letter must be given to the Office of Residence Life. This form is required in order to receive a refund or place your deposit on hold.

Taking a Leave of Absence, Withdrawing, or Graduating from Simmons
