Canceling Housing

First time applicants for NYMC housing are required to pay a $200 non-refundable housing application fee. Once an incoming or first time housing student receives their housing assignment they will be given 24 hours to cancel their assignment in writing without being responsible for the term of the agreement.  Once this 24 hour period has passed the student will not be refunded in the event the applicant no longer needs or wishes to reside in college housing.  Housing is not guaranteed and space is limited. 

Current students who wish to cancel during the term dates of the housing agreement, are responsible for all payments for the term. If an occupant requests to vacate a space during the term of the agreement, they will continue to be responsible for all payments as follows:

If the occupant continues to be eligible for NYMC housing he/she will be placed on the termination list based on the date.  The Office of Student & Residential Life receives the termination notice in writing.  He/she will be relieved of all remaining housing payments when they have been removed from the list.

The Office of Student & Residential Life will maintain a list of all occupants who have notified, in writing, that they will be terminating their housing.  The list will be maintained in the order termination notices are received. When a new occupant begins payment for housing, the person on the top of the list will be relieved of their payment obligations, regardless of the apartment actually assigned. Reassigning the space of the terminated occupant will not necessarily relieve that occupant of the housing payment responsibility.
