The following restrictions apply:

  • Funds are available on a first-come, first served basis.
  • This applies to Spring 2018 contracts only.
  • The friend you refer must not have an existing reservation with HRE for the 2017-2018 Academic Year or Spring 2018. Their application must be submitted after December 20th, 2017.
