Cancellation

To cancel your housing contract/application, log into My Housing and click the Resources tab on the gold navigation bar. Select "Cancel My Housing" from the drop down menu. Upon completion of cancellation, you will receive a confirmation e-mail which should be retained as proof of cancellation. Cancellation penalties are assessed regardless of the time you are accepted to Georgia Tech and regardless of when you apply for housing. Notifying other Georgia Institute of Technology offices (i.e., Admission’s Office, Registrar’s Office, Bursar’s Office, etc.) DOES NOT cancel your housing contract.
