**Housing deposits will be processed as follows:

 

1. Held in an escrow account until housing contact fulfilled.
2. Returned to the student if the student does not receive housing for the following year or chooses not to return within stated housing selection deadlines. Deposit will not be returned if the student has an outstanding balance with the University.
3. Forfeited by those students who communicate after the housing selection process deadline, that they will not be returning to Alvernia University or have chosen to live off campus. See the Student Handbook for details.

Current commuter students who desire on-campus housing must first pay a $250 housing deposit in the Office of Student Accounts and complete a housing application in the Residence Life Office. A commuter student will be assigned housing only after room selection for current resident students is complete and pending space availability. In the event there is lack of room availability, housing deposits will be refunded only if a student has no outstanding debt to the university. If a student requests placement on a housing waiting list, the deposit will not be refunded or applied to current debt until removal from the housing waiting list is requested.
