Academic Year Lease Agreement
When a student is assigned a room,
the housing agreement represents a lease for the academic year. The university
commits to provide a room, and the student commits to reside on campus through
the following spring term unless the student graduates, withdraws from the
university or gets married. Students may not move off campus for any other
reasons between fall and spring terms. A substantial penalty is imposed if
residents break their lease agreement - $500.
The lease is not for a specific
room, but a commitment to live on campus. Consistent with current residence
life policy and procedure, students may change rooms at designated times and
with prior approval of a Residence Life Coordinator. However, unauthorized moves will result in a
substantial penalty. Residents may be required to change rooms if it is
determined by the Office of Residence Life to be necessary and in the best
interest of the student or the university.
