Important Studio Policies

Making Housing Payments

Once students accept their housing placement by submitting the Placement Acceptance Form, they are provided with the bank transfer information necessary to remit payment. Housing fees must then be received within 10 business days, or prior to move-in, whichever comes first. Applicants who do not remit their payment within the allotted timeframe may lose their housing placement.

Wire transfers are accepted for the full payments of housing fees, or for first installment payments. To ensure that the due amount is received by the International Finance Office, any fees associated with sending the wire transfer should be paid separately and not taken from the housing fees being wired. Residents choosing to pay their housing fees in installments should plan to make their second payment by credit card online or in person at the cashier’s office.

Refund Policies

Restoration Fee: The $300 restoration fee is non-refundable.
Damage Deposit: The $300 damage deposit is refundable at the conclusion of the license period, as long as damage has not been caused to the apartment or property. An evaluation of damage is done at the time the student moves out.
Occupancy Fee: For students who paid in full for the Summer - Spring, Summer - Summer, Fall - Spring, or Fall - Summer license periods, the occupancy fee is partially refundable if the resident notifies the college of his/her intent to move out by November 1st. The refund will be approximately 45% of the full license fee amount, and the student will need to vacate the Studios by the final day of Fall quarter. For students who paid in installments, the installment payments of the occupancy fee are non-refundable.

For students who move in the Studios in other quarters, or who move in for Summer only, the license fee is not refundable.

Further details about our refund policy can be found in the License Agreement.

Other Fees

During their time in the Studios, residents may be charged the following fees. All fees are listed in the license agreement signed by residents at check in:

•Lost Key Fee: $50 (per key lost)
•Improper checkout: $200

Additionally, if a student causes damages greater than the amount of the damage deposit, a fee for the excess damages will be added to his/her college account.
