Exemptions and Cancellations

Students who are required by the University Housing Policy to live on campus must submit a legally binding academic year long housing contract. Exceptions to this policy are rare, but will be considered for extenuating circumstances. Choose from the links below for more information on submitting an exemption or cancellation request.


When to Apply: Exemption requests need to be submitted prior to submitting a housing contract.

Reasons to Apply for an Exemption: Visit our Exemptions page for more information about the acceptable reasons to submit an exemption.

Completed exemption requests need to be submitted at least three (3) weeks before New Student Orientation for processing. Students who fail to submit a completed exemption within three weeks of their scheduled orientation may have a delay in registering for classes.


When to Apply: Cancellations requests will need to be submitted once a housing contract has been submitted.

Reasons to Apply for a Cancellation: Visit our Cancellations page for information about the acceptable reasons to submit a contract cancellation.

Submit your exemption or cancellation request online in the Texas State Housing Portal.
