Fall 2013/Spring 2014 Housing Release Request Notice
Attention: Students assigned to live on-campus for Fall 2013/Spring 2014
Please review the Housing Release Request grid. If you no longer need on-campus housing (residence hall or on-campus apartment), you will need to submit the online housing release request form.
If your release request reason is to move off-campus: Ssubmit your housing release request before May 1, and there will be no housing cancellation fee. After May 1, there will be a $500 charge and after the start of the semester, you will not be released and will incur the full cost of living in your campus assignment.
Be sure that you have something secured off-campus before submitting the form because once we cancel your housing, you will not be eligible to live on-campus next year (due to space limitations).
Summer 2013 On-Campus Housing for Current On-Campus Students
On-campus housing for upper class students this summer will be limited. Spaces will be available on a first-come/first-served basis. Students must be living on-campus for Spring 2013 and taking at least one class for the session living on. For more information please view our Summer Housing Announcement.
New On-Campus Housing Release Information
Effective Fall 2013/Spring 2014
Housing agreements are for the full academic year (starting in the Fall semester and ending at the conclusion of the Spring semester) or remaining portion thereof. Students who wish to be released from their housing agreement must submit a Housing Release Request Form. You are not released until you receive an approval response from Residence Life. A cancellation fee may be applied depending on when you submit the release and your reason for requesting to be released (see our release information grid for more information).
Please remember, students will not be released from their on-campus housing assignment to move off-campus for Fall 2012/Spring 2013.
Room Fee Notice
Check ISIS for room change rate adjustments prior to and throughout the semester. Elwell Hall is billed at a higher room rate because students have in room heat and air temperature control. Air conditioned rooms in other residence halls are also billed at a higher room rate. If you moved from a non-air conditioned room or residence hall other than Elwell to an air conditioned room or Elwell Hall, you will see a net increase in your room rate for the semester on your account in ISIS with a balance due for this move. There will be a credit on your account for a reverse move.
Campus apartment rates and associated utility fees also differ from one complex to another. Moves between complexes will result in rate changes and will show on your ISIS account shortly after the move occurs.
No Housing Release
Students will not be released from their on-campus housing assignment to move off-campus for Fall 2012/Spring 2013. Housing assignments are for the full academic year. This includes on-campus apartments (MPA, MOA, JKA, Kile and Trinity) and residence halls.
