Financial Matters

Housing Policy/Room Reservation Fee

Quinnipiac guarantees housing for the first three years of a student’s college experience. Seniors and graduate students are housed on a space-available basis. Housing is guaranteed to two groups of students: incoming students who choose to live on campus at the time of their admission to the university and returning students who pay their housing deposit by the designated deadline. Each year students who wish to live in the residence halls for the following year must pay a non-refundable housing deposit by the established deadline. Failure to do so may result in loss of housing privileges. In addition, each student must pay a security deposit when they move onto campus.

Withdrawal and Refund Policy

Housing contracts are for the full academic year, both fall and spring semesters and exclude all vacation periods including Thanksgiving, Winter and Spring breaks. Room and board charges are billed by the semester.  Enrolled students may cancel their housing contract for any reason and without paying an additional fee within 30 days of the date the student signs the contract, and no later than August 1 for students who sign their contract after July 1.

Enrolled students who select housing and are registered will be financially responsible if notice of cancellation is not received within 30 days of signing the contract. Students who are removed from the residence halls for disciplinary reasons will remain financially obligated.

This contract and associated financial obligations will terminate automatically in the case of non-enrollment, authorized withdrawal, academic suspension, participation in study abroad or other approved academic experience, and/or graduation.
