If your deposit is not received online within 24-hours of the lottery, your room request will be cancelled.

You will be able to make payments online by credit card at a web site to be provided. Arrangements can be made to pay by check or cash. If you have a problem with your payment, contact Tricia Maloney to discuss.You will not be permitted to remain in your room if no payment is received by June 21, 2013. Any remaining payments will be applied to your College account and will have to be paid before graduation.
If you don't go online to make your deposit within 24 hours of the lottery, we will assume you no longer want the room and the contract will be cancelled. If you cancel in writing (email@example.com) by noon on April 24, 2013, the room will be cancelled, but your deposit will not be refunded. If the contract is cancelled after noon on April 24 but before the move-in date, the student is responsible for $375.00 (half the payment). If a room is cancelled after the move-in date, the student is responsible for the entire rent of $750.00.
If you are currently studying abroad, you can ask a friend to serve as your proxy. That friend must bring your signed application (for priority lottery) and you must pay your deposit by credit card within 24-hours to hold the room.
