Housing appeal request

The purpose of the Housing Appeals process is to provide students with an unbiased review of their dispute of housing and/or meal plan charges, requirements, or policies as outlined in the Housing Appeals process. The Housing Appeals Committee will review submitted appeals for any housing and/or meal plan-related financial charges, requirements, or policies according to this process.

What you need to know about the housing appeals process

  • Submitting a Housing Appeal does not mean your appeal will be granted.
  • Housing appeals are reviewed at least once per month. We make every effort to review them as quickly as possible, but do not guarantee that you will receive a decision immediately. Assuming all documentation is in order, it is our goal to complete appeal reviews by no more than 30 days after submission. Additionally, times that the university is closed or on break may also delay these processes.
  • Incomplete submissions will not be reviewed. Failure to provide adequate rationale and supporting documentation may result in the delay of your request being considered or denial of your appeal. Providing supporting documentation is highly encouraged and may include, but is not limited to, financial documentation, letters of support, transcript information, and/or legal notifications.
  • All terms, conditions, and related fees in the housing license must be followed until the committee has sent you a written approval for your appeal.
  • The appeal must be submitted within 30 calendar days of the specified charge being posted to the student's account.
