Requests to cancel assignments must be submitted online. Applicants who cancel by the appropriate cancellation dates will receive refunds of their $1000 initial payment. The $25 processing fee is non-refundable. Note that it takes approximately 3 to 4 weeks for the refund to be processed by the NYU Bursar's Office. Refunds are in the form of a check from NYU.
- Those assigned by the end of March will have until April 5 to cancel without obligation.
- Those assigned after the April 5 cancellation deadline will have 48 hours from the date of the assignment notification to cancel without obligation.
After the dates noted above, licensees are charged for the full license period. Licensees are charged for the full, confirmed license period even if they arrive later or leave earlier than the weeks confirmed. Cancellation penalties will be assessed even if original housing charges have not been paid in full. Waitlisted applicants, those who do not have a housing assignment, may cancel their housing application and be refunded their initial payment by submitting a cancellation request.
Note: Claims of not receiving an assignment confirmation do not negate the license obligations agreed to when submitting the application. Cancellation penalties will be assessed even if original housing charges have not been paid in full.
