Residence Hall Contract Cancellation


Can I cancel my residence hall contract?

Your request to cancel your residence hall contract will need to be reviewed and approved by Residence Life.


What does it mean if my residence hall contract is canceled?

If your cancellation request is approved, you will no longer have a room assignment in the UWRF residence halls for the academic term of that contract, nor will you have a housing deposit on file. So be sure that this is what you want to do before submitting your cancellation request.  


Where do I cancel my contract?

Log-into the Residence Hall & Meal Plan Portal. Enter the residence hall contract that you wish to cancel. The final step is the "Submit Cancellation Request" page where you may request your contract cancellation.

Cancel Contract Location in Portal

If you have troubles requesting a contract cancellation in the portal, then e-mail your cancellation request to using your UWRF e-mail account.


What steps do I follow to move out of my hall?

You must check-out with your hall staff by signing paperwork and returning your key. Visit the Move Out web page for more information.


Residence hall deposit refund deadlines

In order to receive a refund for your housing deposit, students must meet the residence hall exemption criteria to live off campus AND cancel their housing contract by:

  • May 1 (if starting in the Fall semester)
  • November 15 (if starting in the Spring semester)

Students who cancel their contracts after these deadlines will forfeit their deposits. 


How can I cancel my meal plan?

Send an e-mail to asking to cancel your dining contract.


I'm withdrawing or transferring from UWRF, what do I do?

Visit the Registrar's Withdrawal web page to formally withdraw from UWRF. As part of the withdrawal process, you'll want to cancel your housing contract. If you're currently living in the halls, you'll need to connect with hall staff to formally check out of your room and turn-in your key - see the Move Out web page linked above for more information.
