If reservation is cancelled at any time, your application fee and rent payment will not be refunded. All bookings/reservations made are non-cancellable and non-refundable. However, out of goodwill, Student Housing Works will attempt to re-market the apartment should the party who booked a reservation decide to terminate the lease early. If Student Housing Works LLC is able to find a replacement tenant, we can refund the prorated rental for the period covered by the replacement tenant. Application and processing fees will not be refunded in any case.
