Withdrawing from the University

If you decide for personal or academic reasons to withdraw permanently or temporarily (intermit) from the University, there is a procedure to follow.

Once you have completed the withdrawal process Accommodation Essex will be informed. When this is confirmed please make sure you return your keys. At this point, we will terminate your accommodation contract and will make no further accommodation charges.

If you decide to leave your accommodation and return your keys before we have received confirmation of your withdrawal/intermission, you will still be liable for the rent until confirmation has been received.

Termination of your contract

Your accommodation contract cannot be terminated until we have received both confirmation of the withdrawal/intermission and your room keys.

Terms and conditions

Information about withdrawing/intermitting is covered in our Terms and Conditions of Residence.
