The ROAF payment is the final step in securing your room reservation for Residence at the University of Saskatchewan, which in turn, removes the ability for other applicants to select and benefit from this unit on campus. Therefore, if you cancel your reservation after making your ROAF payment, you will not be eligible for a refund of the ROAF payment or the application fee.
You are eligible for a refund if you inform the Residence Services Office, within 10 days of your notification with a copy of your non-admittance letter. If you have provided your supporting documentation to the Residence Services Office within the 10 day timeframe, you will receive a refund of ALL Residence fees paid to that point minus the $75 application fee.
You may accept your Room Offer before you have been offered admission to the University of Saskatchewan, so please adhere to all Residence Services housing deadlines.
