Spring Housing Cancellation Form
Conditions for Cancelling the Housing Contract for the Spring Semester
By submitting this cancellation form, the student understands that he/she must meet one of the criteria listed below for cancelling the academic year contract. If at a later date the student is found to be in violation of the cancellation criteria for the contract, he/she will be charged for the semester obligation of the contract. It is the student's responsibility to submit supporting documentation to the Housing Office to support the condition of the cancellation.
To be eligible for the 25% liquidation of the contract, cancellation of the housing contract for the spring semester must be completed prior to the first day of late registration for the spring semester.
The 25% liquidation of the housing contract at midyear is available only to juniors and seniors. The amount is equal to 25% of the double room rent rate for the residential college in which the student is residing on November 15.
Freshmen and sophomore students who wish to cancel their housing contract at midyear in order to commute from their parents' residence must complete the housing exemption application. Exemption paperwork is available on-line or in the Housing Office.
Housing Disability Assignment Appeal Process
A student with a documented disability or a parent or advocate on behalf of the student and with the student’s permission may make a written request for reasonable housing accommodation(s) or a housing exemption. Said request should include appropriate documentation of the student’s disability. The request for the housing accommodation or exemption form will be available on-line or in the Housing Office.
The request form shall be forwarded to the ADA Subcommittee of the Affirmative Action Committee for a determination. Within two (2) weeks of receipt of the request for accommodation or exemption, the committee will make a decision. The decision will then be mailed by the Housing Office to the student.
A student (or the student’s parent or advocate on behalf of the student) who is dissatisfied with the decision of the Subcommittee as to the requested accommodation(s) or housing exemption (i.e. does not believe that the housing assignment or denial of exemption accommodates the student’s disability or in some way endangers the student’s safety or health) may file a written appeal to the Office of Equal Opportunity, 103 Wells Hall, Murray State University, Murray, KY 42071, along with any supporting documentation. Said appeal shall be filed in the Office of Equal Opportunity within ten (10) days from the date of receipt of the original decision by the Subcommittee as to the request for reasonable accommodation(s)/housing exemption. No one involved in the initial decision by the Subcommittee shall be involved in the determination on appeal which shall be made by the Office of Equal Opportunity. The Office of Equal Opportunity shall make a written determination within thirty (30) days from the date it received the appeal. The decision of the Office of Equal Opportunity shall be final.
