Housing for 2010 is now available..no refunds?
Housing for summer and fall 2010 is now available. In talking to someone in housing by phone, the $250 Fall 2010 deposit is non refundable (summer is $100 i think). My son's two college picks are UCF and UF. UF will not let prospective students know if they are admitted until mid February. If UF turns him down in mid February, and then he applies for housing at UCF, he probably won't get his first picks. Do we just suck it up and pay the $250, to guarantee the housing spot, and if he decides on UF, we kiss our money goodbye? What do you think? UF only asks $30 to secure a housing spot...I think $250 is a bit much.
