Housing and Dining Contract Details

The Housing and Dining Services Contract is a legally binding agreement that encompasses the full academic year, September through April. All students were emailed a copy of the contract when they filled out the contract within the housing application and were encouraged to download and save a copy for their records.

We adhere to the concept of university life as a learning experience for our residents. Students have responsibility for having full knowledge of the commitments to which they have obligated themselves to when signing a contract and an appropriate understanding of consequences when they do not fulfill their responsibilities.

We recognize that a student may need to terminate the Housing and Dining Service Contract in certain select instances and releases are granted for the following reasons:

  • Withdrawal from the University
  • Transfer to another school
  • Study abroad (documentation needed)
  • Academically approved internships more than 30 miles one way (documentation needed)
  • Student teaching (documentation needed)
  • Academic dismissal
  • Part-time status – enrollment of 6 credit hours or less for the semester
  • Military duty
  • Graduation

Releases are not given for:

  • Moving home to commute
  • Moving to an off-campus house or apartment
  • Full time enrollment in online classes
  • Concerns about COVID-19
  • Financial issues

Any requests will be reviewed and may or may not be granted. Students who are not approved for a contract release and still choose to move-out will continue to be billed for the remainder of the contract.
