Refunds for Parking, Room and Meal Plans

Dear Kent State University Students,

Just a few short days ago, the COVID-19 pandemic upended all of our lives. We are so appreciative of how well and how quickly all of you residing on campus responded to our call to return home as we all work to implement the mitigation strategies developed by Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine. We are now able to announce our refund policy and procedure for parking, room and meal plans, and we thank you for your patience to date.

For the period after March 20:

  • Parking and Residence Hall fees will be refunded on a prorated basis.
  • Meal plans with remaining all-you-care-to-eat swipes will be refunded for the value of those swipes.
  • Meal plans with remaining declining balance will carry over to the Fall 2020 Semester.

Graduating seniors will receive a refund for the value of their all-you-care-to-eat swipes and declining balances.

All refunds will be issued by April 30.

If you have questions regarding refunds, please call the university One Stop at 330-672-6000.

We thank you for your support at this historic and critical time as Kent State, the state of Ohio and the entire nation determine how to best work through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
