Residential Life Policy: Refund of Room Charge
While residence hall rooms are rented on an academic basis, students who leave the University or change their status to married students during or at the end of the first semester are not charged room rental for the second semester. Students who leave the residence halls during the semester are charged room rental for the balance of that semester unless the residential life office can provide a satisfactory replacement for the vacant space. A satisfactory replacement is deemed to be a student who is not currently living on campus or a student who is living in a "roomsharing" room if the total occupancy of the residence halls is in excess of normal capacity.
Prorated room refunds when applicable will be made from a schedule prepared by the Director of Residential Life and will be on file in the Office of Residential Life. A student suspended or dismissed from the University or withdrawing when under investigation for misconduct is not entitled to any refund of room charges for the balance of the current semester. Student seeking any further information regarding room charges and/or refunds should contact the Office of Residential Life.
This policy is presented here exactly as stated in the Brown Bulletin of the University.
