Housing Cancellation and Termination

All current resident students looking to cancel and terminate their housing must complete and submit a Housing Termination Form through their AU Housing Portal. This page summarizes the cancellation information listed in the 2018-2019 Housing License Agreement (HLA), which is linked below. In addition to the information on this page, please review the HLA for the most accurate information about cancellation fees. New spring 2019 residents should refer to the HLA for cancellation information relevant to them.
