Accepted Applicants

My arrival date has changed since I was admitted. Can I change it?

January 31, 2024

I-House will begin charging room fees beginning on the check in date you submitted in your application. You are not allowed to change this arrival date unless it is permitted. This request must be done in writing to the Admissions Office at least 4 weeks prior to arrival to be considered. Changes are subject to approval by the Admissions Office and are not guaranteed.

Upon admission, I-House will hold a room beginning as close to the date submitted in the application. When an applicant is admitted and submits their reservation deposit, they will be able to provide us with an updated, exact arrival date, and I-House will reserve their room beginning on that date. Should an admitted applicant's plans change and they need to request an adjustment, that request must be submitted in writing to and can be no less than 30 days prior to their current expected arrival date. Any requests to arrive earlier are subject to availability. Requests to arrive later may not be more than 14 days from the expected arrival date confirmed upon admission.

My departure date has changed since I was admitted. Can I change it?

January 31, 2024

Check-out dates are tentatively set for the last day of the Academic Year. If you plan to stay after the date listed, you will be able to apply to do so later in the Academic Year; if you plan to leave earlier than the date listed, please submit an early departure request via the application portal as soon as possible as the Early Departure Policy applies.

How long are the I-House terms? 

January 31, 2024

The Summer Term begins May 16, 2024 and ends August 16, 2024. For incoming summer residents, we will try to accommodate arrivals before May 13th, however we are not obligated to do so. If summer residents wish to stay beyond August 16, 2024, they may do so by requesting an Extension via the application portal. Requests to extend made in writing or in-person will not be processed.

The Academic Year begins September 1, 2024, and ends on May 19, 2025.

What happens if I have to cancel my reservation? 

January 31, 2024

You may cancel your booking prior to arrival on the application portal using the Cancel My Application/Early Departure link under the menu tab. If you notify us prior to your cancel by date written in your admittance email, you will receive a full refund of the room reservation payment. We will not process cancellations until the form on the application portal has been submitted. There will be no exceptions.

When will I know my room number? 

January 31, 2024

We cannot confirm the exact room number before your arrival as room assignments are subject to change. We do guarantee the room type indicated in the acceptance letter.

How do you decide what room I get? 

January 31, 2024

We make every effort to accommodate your room preferences indicated on your application based on availability on your arrival date and the ranking you provided on your application. You will receive an e-mail confirmation within one week of receipt of the $600 Room Reservation Payment and your arrival date.

I was admitted for a room that was not my first choice. Why? Can I request a different room before checking in?

January 31, 2024

I-House receives many applications from applicants on many different schedules. If you were assigned a room that was not your first choice, it is likely because we do not have any of those room types available for the duration of your arrival and departure dates.

We do not accept room change requests prior to arrival; however, upon check-in, you may go to the Admissions Office and submit a room change request form. Room changes requested this way are reviewed in the order they are received, and only when a room becomes available due to resident departure will we be able to provide a room change. Residents can also swap rooms with other residents, eliminating the need to wait for a current resident to vacate their room.

Please note that room changes are never permitted during the summer term.
