Contractual Obligation of the Housing Contract
All housing contracts that originate in the fall semester are two semester contracts (fall and spring semesters). If you sign a housing contract for fall semester and remain enrolled for the following spring semester, you are obligated to the housing contract, which includes responsibility for paying the room rent and meal plan for that spring semester. During the contract period, you may change housing areas or rooms after the second week of classes by completing the necessary paperwork in your community office (based on availability).
