Due to all universities within the University of North Carolina (UNC) System closing all campuses from the COVID-19 outbreak, dorms and dining halls are currently not being used by students. The UNC System Board of Governors came to the decision to reimburse all students for unused housing and dining services.
In a statement released by the UNC System, Director of Media Relations Jason Tyson said that UNC System Interim President Bill Roper made the announcement on March 30 during a meeting with the Board of Governors.
During the meeting it was stated that the system is committed to providing reimbursements of payments from unused housing and dining services back to students.
“It is our commitment to all UNC System students and parents to get this done as quickly as possible. It is also our obligation to get this done right,” Bill Roper said at the meeting. “We hope to be able to announce specifics for processing and issuing refunds in the upcoming weeks.”
Tyson said in the statement that chief financial officers at each institution will work with the UNC System to determine the refunds. They are also working to ensure the calculations and process as a whole is maintained with uniformity across all schools within the UNC System, according to the statement.
