COVID-19 related refunds for housing and meal plans

Getting your money back

Our approach to refunds has been guided by UW System policy and best practices, and below is a breakdown of how refunds will be determined for housing, meal plans, parking and recreation.

Refunds in all areas were prorated using a start date of March 28, which is the date most students would have returned from spring break had our semester not been interrupted by the pandemic.

See the tables below for exact refund amounts for each housing facility and meal plan type.

Timing and refund method

We expect to begin issuing refunds the week of April 27. To ensure you receive your refund as quickly as possible, you are encouraged to verify that your direct deposit information is up-to-date in MyBlugold CampS. Also, ensure your home address is updated if you recently left student housing or an off-campus residence. If you are a student employee and have been paid via direct deposit, you must still ensure that information is entered in CampS to receive a refund in that bank account. Click here for an easy breakdown on how to update that information. For those students who are not signed up for direct deposit, checks will be mailed beginning the week of April 27.
