Q: I Submitted My Application Recently; When Will I be Assigned an Apartment?

Priority on the assignment list is determined by the date of completed application for the assignment period you wish to move in. Notification of assignment is made by email approximately 6-8 weeks before the desired move-in date, or earlier if we become aware of available space. Priority is given to CSU students then to faculty/staff applications that have an academic focus. Please keep us informed of any email address changes. Information regarding your address must be accurate to ensure your receipt of an apartment assignment.

Q: Can I Get My Deposit Back if I Cancel My Application?

Yes. The deposit is refundable at any time prior to your confirming an assignment offer. Your deposit will be refunded to your Colorado State University student/billing account. If there are no outstanding charges, the deposit will be mailed to you in the form of a check as a direct deposit if previously arranged with the CSU Cashier's Office.  Students can sign up for Direct Deposit on RamWeb. To initiate a refund, contact:

Q: When is My Deposit Non-refundable?

Your deposit is non-refundable when:

  • The office sends you an offer and you don't respond within the time limits given by the Assignment Coordinator.
  • You accept/confirm an offer of an apartment, but you change your mind later (cancellation). In this case the deposit might cover part of the rent charges until the apartment is rented. A maximum of 30 days rent would be the responsibility of the applicant in case of cancellation.
