NOTE: Because of the uncertainty created as a result of the spread of the Omicron variant, we will be waiving all Late Housing Cancellation Fees for the Spring '22 term. If you have already been charged a late cancellation fee, it will be refunded by the first day of classes.
During your studies at Harvard College, you may leave campus housing for a number of reasons: if you study abroad, take a leave of absence, or decide to move off-campus. Please review the information below for policies and procedures related to cancelling and returning to housing. If you need (or are not sure whether) to petition the AdBoard to return to enrollment and residence, check with your Allston Burr Resident Dean about whether you are eligible to do so for the upcoming term.
