Financial Obligation, Contract Termination, & Policies
The balance of the housing fees due under a contract will be charged to the Bursar account of a Resident who vacates the residence hall at any time during the contract period and continues enrollment at IU Southeast or who ceases enrollment at IU Southeast but fails to provide a written request for cancellation and formally checks out of an assigned space before the end of the first four weeks of the semester.
Residents are responsible for knowing, understanding, and abiding by the housing contract; the Guide to Residence Hall Living and Residential Student Handbook; the IU Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities and Conduct; and the IU Reasonable Use policy for computers and information technology systems.
The University assumes no responsibility for the loss of money or valuables belonging to the resident or third parties, or for the loss of or damage to personal property. The University strongly recommends that the resident obtain renter’s insurance to cover personal belongings.
A student's contract may be canceled by the University and the resident expelled from campus housing for disciplinary reasons. Expulsion from campus housing, however, does not relieve the resident from the obligation to pay any remaining charges due under his/her contract.
A Resident may cancel his/her contract prior to the beginning of the academic term by providing written notice of cancellation to the Office of Residence Life and Housing. Written notice of cancellation is accomplished by completing a Contract Cancellation Form with RLH personnel or by sending a detailed letter to the office or an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting cancellation. The letter or e-mail must include a student’s name, ID number, room assignment, and brief reason for cancellation. A refund of $50 of the prepayment will be issued if written notice of cancellation is received or postmarked before May 1 for a contract beginning fall semester or before Oct. 1 for spring semester contracts. No refund of the prepayment will be issued for cancellation notices received on or after May 1 for academic year contracts or on or after Oct. 1 for spring semester contracts.
