Contract Terminations

If a student has an extenuating circumstance necessitating a contract termination, they will need to log into the Housing Portal and submit a Contract Termination Request form. The Contract Termination Request will be reviewed along with any accompanying documentation and a decision will be sent to the student within three (3) business days. Contract Termination Requests are granted for only very extenuating circumstances. Finding another apartment off-campus is not considered an extenuating circumstance and we advise students NOT to sign leases off-campus while they still hold an on-campus housing contract. 

If a Contract Termination Request is granted, the housing and dining dollars will be pro-rated based on when the student completes the move-out process which includes an approved Contract Termination, any residential housing move-out requirements and returning keys to the Residence Life Office. Any dining dollar over-usage will be charged to the student.  There is no proration for housing and dining in the first and last two weeks of each quarter.

Students who terminate their housing contract early may be moved to a lower priority group for housing in the 2023-2024 academic year. 

 Visit the Housing Portal to submit a contract termination request.
