University Housing announced in an email Monday afternoon that they would be giving refunds to residents who have moved out of their housing assignments.
Students who were living in Bluff, Prairie and Woodland halls will receive a 50 percent refund because their halls were last open on March 6. Residents who have completed their checkout by removing their belongings and turning in their keys will receive their refunds through the Bursar’s office in four to six weeks. Students who were unable to complete the checkout process will receive a refund after their room is checked for damages.
Students who lived in Evergreen Hall or Cougar Village will receive a 40 percent refund because their facilities closed March 21. Cougar Village residents who still have belongings on campus are required to turn in their keys before they receive their refunds. Housing said the reasoning behind this is that these residents will have continued access to their spaces while they have their keys.
Residents who are still on campus will continue to be charged until they check out.
Students with Meal Plan A or B will receive a credit for their remaining balance and a portion of the fixed dining costs associated with their spring meal plan.
The Alestle will continue to update as more news arises.
