Deadlines Approach! Remind your residence hall students!
Parents of students who live in residence halls, we need your help. The time to reapply for 2003-04 housing is near. Deadlines for renewing residence hall contracts are just around the corner. The reapplication process can only be done by the students. But parents can remind their students of the importance of these deadlines.

All students will receive a University of Iowa Housing Application/Contract Card in February 2003. Students must complete, sign, and return it to the Housing Office, 17 Burge Hall, during normal working hours—8 a.m to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday—with $70 (a $50 advance payment and $20 nonrefundable application/processing fee) by Feb. 26, 2003. Once the card and payment are received, the student will be eligible for the next step of the process. If students do not return the card by Feb. 26, they will not be housed in residence halls next year.

“The next deadline in the process is April 18, 2003,” says Dicta Schoenfelder, manager of the Housing Office. “Students have until then to pick out a room, reserve it, and select a board plan. If students do not make that deadline, housing applications will be canceled and the $50 advance payment will be refunded.”

All contracts become binding June 2, 2003. If a student does not cancel by this binding contract date but is still a registered student during the contract period, he or she will be billed for room and board, regardless of whether the room is actually occupied.
