Housing Rent Credit

Housing Rent Credit

The following was shared with on-campus residents and their emergency contacts Sunday, March 15. Please refer to the University's main Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information page regularly for important campus information. 

As previously shared, students will continue classes online but have been asked not to return to campus for classes for the remainder of the spring 2020 semester. Therefore, we have asked students not to return to live on campus if they have a suitable alternative living option

With these unique and unprecedented circumstances, Housing & Residential Life is offering a credit for spring 2020 semester housing to students who are moving out of the dorms now. We have developed two options: 

Option A: A 10% credit for the 2019-2020 academic year housing will be applied to your Bursar’s account May 12. 

After any outstanding balance on your student account has been settled, the Bursar’s Office will either mail you a check or deposit the credit to your checking account if you have signed up for direct deposit. Please reference this chart for actual dollar amount.


Option B: A 20% credit will be applied to your academic year 2020-2021 on-campus housing.

Your credit will be applied in August and posted to your Bursar’s account and can be used for your 2020-2021 academic year on-campus housing. If you haven’t already done so, please complete your 2020-2021 housing application. This credit can only be used for your 2020-2021 on-campus housing. Please reference this chart for actual dollar amount.

You must make your selection in your housing portal in My UAHome, starting Wednesday, March 18 through Friday, April 17. If by April 17 you have not selected an option, Option A will be selected for you. Once a selection has been made, it will be considered final in order to expedite the processing of your credit selection. Any student living in campus housing as of March 6 is eligible for the credit.

For students who do not have a suitable alternative living option, housing is still open and available. Dorms, food service, Campus Health, Student Rec Center, libraries and computer labs are open and will remain open to support you. If you are currently living on campus or will be moving back to campus this spring semester, you are not eligible for these credit options.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.
