legal disclaimer

    1. Housing Deposit:
      1. This application will not be processed until the non-refundable housing deposit has been paid (unless the deposit is waived).

      2. The housing deposit is a non-refundable down payment that will eventually be applied towards the full amount of the corresponding housing payment.

      3. If the housing deposit was waived, John Cabot University reserve the right to charge the applicant the full amount of the housing deposit if the application is cancelled after the housing deadline for the corresponding term.

    2. Cancellation:
      1. I understand that if I wish to cancel or withdraw my request for housing, I must do so in writing by emailing housing@johncabot.edu on or before the application deadline for the corresponding term.

      2. I understand that should I choose to withdraw my application for housing, I will forfeit the housing deposit (even if the housing deposit was waived due to a billing arrangement between John Cabot University and my home university).

      3. I understand that should I choose to withdraw my application or cancel my request for housing after the full payment deadline for the corresponding term, John Cabot University reserves the right to charge me either personally or through my home university for the full cost of housing.

    3. Refund Policy:
      1. I understand that completed Housing Payments may be fully refunded (less the non -refundable Housing Deposit) if notice is received in writing before the payment deadline for the corresponding term.

      2. I agree that if a cancellation request is received in writing after the payment deadline and before the move in date for the corresponding term, a refund will be granted for half the amount paid less the non-refundable deposit.

      3. Cancellation requests received after the move in date for the corresponding term will not be granted a refund. Likewise, after occupancy, no refunds will be possible.

    4. Housing Move-in and Move-out:
      1. Please note that you cannot move in to your apartment before the move-in date and must vacate the apartment on or before the move-out date. Please see the Housing Move In and Out of the Housing website.

    5. Immigration Requirements:
      1. I understand that I am responsible for obtaining and maintaining my legal status in Italy: I will obtain my STUDENT VISA prior to entering the EU and complete the "Permit to Stay" within 8 days of entering Italian territory. I understand that failure to comply with immigration laws is a forfeit of my housing accommodations, with no available refund, and that JCU does not accept liability for students who do not complete their legal requirements.
