Just wondering when this happens. According to the email I got back when i got my room:
After housing registration closes on July 15, 2019 the assigned hotel(s) will charge a non-refundable deposit equal to one-night stay plus tax per room to issue reservations confirming each assignment. The non-refundable deposit also serves as the reservation cancellation fee if the guest cancels with the hotel directly after July 15, 2019.
So I was curious if this started happening yet. I know it hasn't been 24 hours yet. I only go every two years, and I don't remember last time when the deposit came out.
