All refunds will be prorated to March 23, the date SU discontinued on-campus instruction, regardless of when a student moves out, said Jennifer Uryniak, interim director of auxiliary services, in an SU News release.
SU announced March 16 that all classes will take place online for the remainder of the semester due to the coronavirus pandemic. The university encouraged all students living in SU housing to leave before the start of this week.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has restricted non-essential travel, and no students or families are allowed to clear out their dorm room or apartment until further notice, Uryniak said.
