This form is used to defer a semester of housing.
Your $200 prepayment will be applied to your housing bill when you return to campus. Deferring your application WILL hold/guarantee a space for you on campus, but WILL NOT hold/guarantee your current assignment. You will receive a new assignment based on availability when you return. The original terms and conditions of your housing contract still apply.
