If applicable, please email email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org outlining your situation.

As a residence student, you will receive a refund of ¼ of your winter residence fees and ¼ of your winter meal plan if you leave residence by March 22. This will be applied to your student account as a credit.
If you would rather receive a refund than leave the credit on your account, follow these instructions.
When you return your room key and gown to the Alex Hall front desk, please complete a banking information form. This form will be provided to the Student Accounts Office and your refund will be directly deposited into your bank account. The timing of the deposit will depend on the time it takes to process your residence withdrawal in the student information system. Residence staff will forward Student Accounts residence withdrawals once every morning. Student Accounts will then process the residence withdrawal. If the withdrawal is processed and the banking information form is received by noon, you will receive your deposit overnight that night. If this occurs later than noon, the deposit will be delayed by one day. Please email email@example.com directly if you would like to receive and submit the banking information form through email.
