Residence Hall Contract Cancellation

2014-2015 Academic Year

Any student cancelling their contract during the spring 2015 semester will forfeit their contract payment for the 2014-2015 year.


2015-2016 Academic Year

Students who cancel their contract on or before May 1, 2015 will receive a refund of their deposit assuming there are not outstanding fees or charges on the student bill.

Contracts canceled between May 2, 2015 and August 29, 2015, will result in a forfeit of the deposit. 

After August 29, 2015 the Resident may apply through filling out and submitting the Residency Policy Exemption form to the Director of Residence Life or their designee for a contract cancellation for the following circumstances:

  • Loss of student status as defined by graduation, transferring to another school, suspension, withdrawal or failure to attend.
  • Assigned to a University sponsored internship, research, or other University program that requires living away from River Falls.
  • Completion of graduation requirements during the term of the contract.
  • Marriage and or parenthood. Presentation of certification(s) is required.
  • Call to active military duty. Documentation is required.
  • Unusual and compelling circumstances in which the judgment of the Director of Residence Life or their designee entitles the Resident to special consideration.

If the resident receives approval for one of the above circumstances the contract will be canceled. Any remaining charges will be prorated to the resident’s student billing account based on the date of checkout. 

Cancellations without approval of the Director or their designee will result in a breach of contract. The Resident will be responsible for 85% of the remaining cost of the 2015-16 academic year contract based on check out date and forfeit their deposit.

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 schedule an appointment with your hall Assistant Complex Director (ACD) to formally check out of your room and turn-in your key - see the Move Out web page for more information.
