The housing contract is legally binding for the entire academic year. Cancellations may be granted in certain circumstances such as withdrawal from the university, graduation or student teaching. Incoming students who choose not to attend Texas State after having submitted a contract should also complete this form. Once the contract is signed, students have 72 hours to cancel without penalty.
After 72 hours, restrictions will apply and requests will be reviewed but cannot be guaranteed.
Please note that cancellation requests for any reason except withdraw / no longer enrolled and cancelling within 72 hours may take up to three (3) weeks to process. The length of the review process depends on for which reason you are canceling and the volume of previously submitted cancellation requests.
Submitting a cancellation request does not guarantee a cancellation (unless withdrawn/graduating). Students will be emailed regarding the decision.
