Deferment Request

You can request a reservation fee deferment as part of the Housing Application.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The applicant is always responsible for any Liquidated Damages/Contract Cancelation Fees.

Deferment requests must be received by your guarantee deadline if applicable. Apply for housing before completing a Request for Deferment. Please don’t wait till the last minute to submit your request.

Deferment Approvals will be sent to your UC Merced email account. Your space in housing is guaranteed when you receive the “Contract Acceptance Notice” via email.
