COVID-19 FAQs Related to Beyond Boston Leased Housing

Q: If my co-op gets cancelled due to COVID-19 and I find out after the cancellation deadline (45 days prior to the start of your co-op term), will I still be charged in full for the housing?

A: If your co-op is cancelled due to COVID-19 and you no longer plan on moving to your leased housing location, you will need to provide written proof to OCHSS that your co-op has been cancelled, which can be in the form of an email or letter from your co-op advisor or co-op employer.  Once you provide that proof, you will not be charged for the housing, and your deposit will be refunded.

 

Q: If my co-op gets moved to a remote format due to COVID-19 , will I still be charged in full for the housing?

A: If your co-op is moved to a remote format due to COVID-19 and you’re unable to physically move in at the beginning of your original co-op start date, you will need to provide written proof to OCHSS that your co-op has been moved to a remote format, or that your co-op employer is allowing a remote format, which can be in the form of an email or letter from your co-op advisor or co-op employer.  Once you provide that proof, you will not be charged for the weeks that you are not living in the leased housing (whether it is for the entirety of your co-op, or partially). You will be prorated on a weekly basis based on when you can physically move-in (per guidance from your employer and the university).  Your deposit will be refunded in full if you are unable to physically move in at all.

 

Q: If my employer and the university is allowing me to work in-person at my beyond Boston co-op, but I personally choose to instead work from home or to not follow through with my co-op due to COVID-19, will I still be charged in full for the housing?

A: If both your employer and the university are allowing you to work in-person and move to your beyond Boston leased housing location, you will be held to the cancellation deadline (45 days prior to the start of your co-op term).  Cancellations that occur after the cancellation deadline for reasons other than co-op postponement, cancellation, or the co-op moving to a remote format, will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Depending on circumstances, we cannot guarantee that there will be no financial penalty for such cancellations.
