Prorated Refunds for Room and Board

March 22, 2020

Dear UM res hall family,

The University of Montana places the health and safety of our students as our top priority, one of the reasons we have gone to a remote learning environment and asking students to find alternate housing arrangements if possible. The Commissioner of Higher Education has authorized us to provide prorated refunds, to the extent possible, for room and board to those students who have departed the residence halls and/or canceled meal plans based on recent guidance from the Montana University System regarding the COVID-19 situation.

Refunds may be issued for the period from March 23 through the end of spring term. You will need to complete a cancellation form to be eligible for the refund (if you have already moved out, you will not have to complete a cancellation form). The cancellation form, as well as specific procedures for processing refunds, will be available Wednesday, March 25. You will receive an email with this information. Please allow until April 15 for reimbursement payment.

You will not need to remove your belongings from your room in order to submit your cancellation on StarRez.

Thank you for your patience as we work through this ever-evolving situation.


Sandy Curtis, Director

UM Housing
