10/30/14Spring 2015 Housing Release Request

If you are graduating, withdrawing, transferring, student teaching or completing an internship or study abroad program and no longer need on-campus housing for Spring 2015, please submit a Housing Release Request form found online. Be sure to complete the form accurately and select Fall 2014/Spring 2015 as the contract you wish to break. Enter the last day of the Fall 2014 semester (12/13/2014) as the effective date.

You are not released until you receive notification from the Office of Residence Life whether your request was approved or denied and if approved, when you will be expected to vacate your residence hall / apartment. We will reply to your Housing Release Request via your BU email account so be sure to check it often.

We will not release students to move off-campus. If we discover you are still attending Bloomsburg University and living off-campus, you may face disciplinary action and be held accountable for the cost of your on-campus assignment.

Do not submit a housing release form until you are certain that you no longer need on-campus housing. Once you submit a housing release form and receive approval, we will cancel your housing and you will not be eligible to live on-campus.

Please Note: If you are moving from a residence hall room to an on-campus apartment for spring, DO NOT submit a housing release request. Montgomery Place (MPA), Mt Olympus (MOA), Jessica Kozloff (JKA), Kile and Trinity House apartments are part of our on-campus housing system.

10/15/14Planning to live on campus again for Fall 2015/Spring 2016?

Current on-campus students will soon be receiving a postcard in their campus mailbox regarding the HOST process for Fall 2015/Spring 2016. If you want to live on-campus (residence hall or on-campus apartment) again for Fall 2015/Spring 2016, you must participate in this process and meet all advertised deadlines. Failure to complete all required steps will result in no campus housing for you for Fall 2015/Spring 2016.

06/02/14Wired Network Connection Notice

The cost to maintain both a wired and wireless network infrastructure is high with less than 10% of students opting for wired connections. As a result, most of the infrastructure that supported the wired network has been decommissioned in an effort to keep housing rates as low as practical. All students residing in residence halls and apartments are provided with access to the University's high speed wireless network at no additional charge. All rooms, and select common areas in apartments, have ethernet jacks installed, but these are now inactive. A limited number of wired connections are still available, but at an additional charge. If you would prefer to connect to the University network via a wired connection, please complete our Wired Network Connection Request form to submit a request to have your port activated.

04/09/14Submit Housing Release if Not Living On-Campus for Fall 2014 / Spring 2015

If you no longer need on-campus housing, submit a housing release form.

If your release request reason is to move off-campus: As long as you submit your housing release request before May 1, there will be no housing cancellation fee. After May 1, there will be a $500 charge and after the start of the semester, you will not be released and will incur the full cost of living in your campus assignment.

Be sure that you have something secured off-campus before submitting the form because once we cancel your housing, you will not be eligible to live on-campus next year (due to space limitations).
