All residents must sign a Housing Contract prior to moving on campus. The contract must be renewed annually.

Residence Hall Contracts may include a meal plan, as some residential areas require a meal plan.

Petition for Contract Cancellation

A student who signs a housing and meal plan contract will be financially liable for the full academic year. We are not accepting petitions for Contract Cancellation at this time.
