Early Termination of the Housing Contract (after assuming occupancy)
For Fall and Spring terms: Occupants may cancel the Student Housing Contract prior to the end of the Contract only if the occupant does NOT return to the College as a student for the spring term. Written notification MUST be received by December 1. Notifications received after the due date will result in forfeiture of the housing deposit, and/or additional charges.
If the occupant officially withdraws from the College during the contract period, the applicable room and board assessment is in accordance with the current refund policy published by the Student Billing and Cashiering Office. Please note that the billing will be determined by the date the student officially checks out of housing, rather than the date of withdraw from classes.
Occupants are bound to the Student Housing Contract for the full academic year (August‑May) and may NOT cancel in order to change place of residence to a private home, apartment or other off‑campus accommodation (while remaining a student at Fort Lewis College). If the student begins occupancy in the spring term, the Student Housing contract is for that term only.
For Summer Housing: If the occupant officially withdraws from the College during the contract period, the applicable room assessment will be based on a daily pro rata and the date of official check-out by the occupant. If the withdraw or early termination occurs after 80% of the contract duration, no refund will be issued. Please note that the billing will be determined by the date the student officially checks out of housing, rather than the date of withdraw.
