Financial Matters

Housing Policy/Deposits

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

Students wishing to withdraw from campus housing for the spring semester must complete a residence hall withdrawal form. At the end of the academic year, all students who are not returning to campus housing must complete this form to have their security deposit refunded. Students who withdraw from the residence halls forfeit their right to housing, and may be placed on a waiting list if they wish to return to the residence halls. For further information, refer to the Financial Information and Refund Policy effective each fall semester.

Eligibility to Reside on Campus

To be eligible for university housing, individuals must be full-time matriculating students, at least 17 years old, who are in good academic, student conduct and financial standing with the university and have paid their housing deposit according to established policies.
