Housing Withdrawal (Residence Hall and Greek)
Students occupying university housing facilities who withdraw or take a leave of absence are given 24 hours from the time of withdrawal to complete the Check-Out Procedures listed below. Students who are suspended, expelled or are otherwise dismissed from the university are required to remove their belongings from their residence and return keys immediately. The Dean of Students or the Office of Residential Services may allow additional time on a case-by-case basis.
All personal property must be completely removed from the room. This includes student furniture, carpets, lofts, etc. Check all desk and dresser drawers and closets to make sure that all personal belongings are removed. Lehigh University is not responsible for any personal items left behind.
All room furnishings must be present, reassembled, in good condition and returned as close as possible to original placement.
The room should be clean and trash discarded in popper receptacles. An inspection will conducted by Residential Services/Residence Life Staff following your departure. Charges will be assessed to you if any items appear to be student damage or if excessive cleaning is required.
If you rented a Microfridge from Campus Specialties, it is your responsibility to contact them (800)525-7307 to pick up the unit. Do not leave it with someone else. You are financially responsible for the unit.
All keys that were issued to you must be returned to the University Police or the Office of Residential Services PRIOR to your departure. The charge for not returning a key is $35.
If eligible, refund of room charges will not be considered until the room is vacated and all keys issued have been returned. Calculation of any proportionate refund will be determined by such date. (See the Student Handbook: Financial Responsibility – Residence Hall Housing Deposit / Room Refunds)
Students who withdraw or take a leave of absence in the Fall semester and returns in the following Spring semester MUST contact the Office of Residential Services directly regarding housing arrangements. Housing contracts are signed for a full academic year which obligates the student to reside in university housing upon their return for the spring.

The SOS Committee meets every other Thursday over the summer. If you
have a petition you would like us to consider, please print out the
form and complete it as directed.
Since students are not present in the SOS meetings, the information you give to the Associate Dean is extremely important when discussing your petitions. Completed petitions are due by 4:00pm on the Tuesday before the SOS meeting. Please see below for this semester’s scheduled meetings. Meeting dates may change as needed.
Please be sure to get the required signatures, with the
exception of the Dean of Students slot. After receiving instructor
(where required), advisor, and college Associate Dean signatures,
deliver the petition to the Registrar's office for review and
signature. The Registrar's office will deliver the forms to the
office of the Associate Dean of Students. This form must be printed
and signed by hand because it is important that you talk with the
appropriate people when obtaining their signatures. In cases where it
is not possible to get physical signatures, students may request
e-mail responses in place of written signature.
You are welcome to contact the Associate Dean of Students to ask questions about the process or discuss your petition.

If you need to miss a class or a day of classes due to illness, athletic competition, personal issue, or other appropriate reason, it is extremely important that you contact your instructor as soon as possible. The Office of Academic Support Services suggests that you contact your instructor by email before you miss the class. A Report of Student Absence form is available in the office to assist that process.
Please note that the Health Center does not issue medical excuses.
Students missing three or more days of classes need to contact the Associate Dean as soon as possible. They can assist you in notifying instructors as necessary. Good communication is key. Please keep your instructor and the Dean informed of any extenuating circumstances.
