Cancellation Policies
To cancel your housing contract/application, log into your My Housing account, choose the appropriate application, and cancel.

Upon completion of on-line cancellation, the Student will receive a confirmation e-mail which should be retained as proof of cancellation. Cancellation penalties are assessed regardless of the time that you are accepted to GT and regardless of when you apply for housing.

The information provided below is an excerpt from the Housing Contract. Omission of any part of the contract on this page does not negate the complete cancellation policy the contract contains.


Cancellation Policy--Before Contract Begins:

Contract Termination by Student--After Contract Begins: 

If terminating after the Contract begins, the Student is responsible for the full rental amount for the entire length of the contract. Prior to withdrawal from Georgia Institute of Technology, the Student must submit a written notice of cancellation to the Department of Housing, Student Services Building, 353 Ferst Drive NW, Atlanta, GA 30332-0459.

A Student desiring to terminate this Contract prior to the expiration of this Contract may do so without full penalty only for reasons listed in Section A, below. Submission of the “Letter Of Appeal” Does Not Release The Student From This Contract. The Student may be released from this Contract only by following the procedures listed below in Section A.

A. A student withdrawing from Georgia Institute of Technology Department of Housing for one of the following reasons will be charged a prorated amount based on days of occupancy: (1) Graduation, (2) Marriage, (3) Military, (4) Medical, (5) Georgia Institute of Technology Co-op Program, (6) Georgia Institute of Technology Required Internship, Study Abroad, or (7) Academic Drop. The release must occur during the Semester for which the Student is requesting to be released (i.e., for a marriage release, the marriage must take place during the semester the Student is asking for the request for withdrawal within 30 days prior to the requested effective date of contract termination.) Georgia Institute of Technology shall determine the sufficiency of the documentation presented. Otherwise, the Student will be responsible for the remainder of the Contract (rent and fees).
