Important Reminder


First and second year students are required to live in college housing. Third and fourth year students may break their Room Lease & Board Contracts without penalty by July 1. After July 1, students will be responsible for paying the full cost of room and board for the year. Please note that breaking the contract will make students ineligible to continue in the Colby-Sawyer Price and Graduation Promise program.
