Housing Registration

All current resident students must register online by the date determined by the Office of Residence Life to become eligible for the Rhodes College Housing lottery and selection process for the following academic year. 

It is the student’s responsibility to know the eligibility requirements of the housing selection process. 

Students who cancel their registration or housing after the selection process begins are subject to a progressive cancellation fee. 

If a student cancels before May 15, there is no cancellation fee. 

Students who cancel between May 16 and June 30 will incur a $250 cancellation fee. For students who cancel between June 30 and July 15, the cancellation fee is $500. 

Cancellations after July 15 will incur a $750 cancellation fee. For the Student required to live on campus, the College will assign a room in Rhodes College Housing even if the Student does not meet the designated registration deadline.

Once the Student checks into their Rhodes College Housing at the appointed time for any given semester, this Housing Contract may only be canceled if expressly provided herein. There are no refunds of room/board charges once students move into Rhodes College Housing, irrespective of cancellation, for the following reasons:

  1. If the Student fails to register for classes;
  2. If the Student is not a full-time registered student in any given semester;
  3. If the Student is required to live in non-Rhodes College Housing by participating in an academic program officially sanctioned by the College. The College does NOT guarantee Rhodes College Housing to students returning from an officially sanctioned year or semester off-campus. Students who participate in an approved off-campus program may return to Rhodes College Housing on a space-available basis only;
  4. If the Student marries or gives birth during the period of Contract;
  5. If the Student takes a leave of absence from the College for any reason;
  6. Upon completion of graduation requirements by the Student, unless the Student continues to be enrolled full-time;
  7. If the accommodations assigned to the Student are destroyed or become otherwise unavailable and the College does not furnish substitute accommodations; and
  8. If, in the opinion of the Vice President for Student Life, the Student fails to meet the full terms and conditions stated herein or if the Student violates any College or residence regulations as stated in the Student Handbook or the College Catalogue, which are both, incorporated herein by reference, or if, in the opinion of the Vice President for Student Life, the Student poses a threat of substantial harm to persons or College property.
  9. If the Student is convicted of a felony, a misdemeanor involving assault or non-consensual sexual contact, or a crime requiring registration as a sex offender.
