If you are looking at having a break from Uni life but wish to return to B&G the following year or semester you can defer your accommodation contract. This guarantees you a place when you return (as long as your deferral is approved) and saves the stress of trying to find accommodation again.
If you are going on exchange or simply want a break from Uni, you can defer your accommodation contract for up to 12 months.
If you want to defer your contract, just contact the Admission’s Officer advising that you will be deferring and when you intend on coming back and they will make note on your account. You will then be treated as a returner and will be asked to submit a returning application either around May (for a Semester 2 return) or around October (for a Semester 1 return) so please keep an eye out for this email. You will be treated the same as all returning residents with the same deadlines, time frames and against the same returners policy.
There is no fee involved in deferring your contract, we just hold your $300 bond to reserve your room. If you decide that you wont be coming back to B&G at all, this will then be refunded to you. Note that if you cancel a contract, cancellation fees will still apply.
