Cancellation Policy


This policy contains two separate sub-sections: one for First-Year Applicants and one for Upper-Level Applicants. Be sure to review the definitions of these two groups below. If you have any additional questions regarding which applicant category pertains to you, please .

For the purposes of this policy, first-year applicants are defined as students applying to live on campus during their first year of study at the University of Louisville. On the other hand, upper-level applicants are defined as students who have attended an accredited college or university for at least one academic year [(not including the summer semester(s)]. Please note that this policy does not consider credit hours obtained prior to high school graduation as contributing toward an applicant level. 

You may request to cancel your license agreement by completing the Cancellation Request Form, available in the Housing Portal. Prior to completing this form, please review the following information in its entirety.

Please note that cancelling your license agreement may incur a fee(s), so be sure to review your applicable section below.

Please also note that our university has a First-Year Live-On Policy.

  • If you are approved for a first-year live-on exemption, you are still responsible for paying a cancellation fee if you cancel your housing assignment more than five business days after receiving a room assignment. The cancellation fee is equivalent to one full semester’s cost of housing based on your room assignment.
  • All students who are approved for a first-year live-on exemption are still responsible for paying a non-compliance fee for each semester out of compliance with the first-year live-on policy. This fee is calculated according to the cost of a standard double room in a traditional hall.
