This document sets forth the terms and conditions upon which room and board in Eastern Michigan University residence halls is leased to a person (herein called RESIDENT) by the University's Board of Regents, being the constitutional and statutory board of control of Eastern Michigan University (herein called UNIVERSITY).  This contract is for the 2013 summer semester only.
