Room agreement Types

(Please note, these agreement types go into effect for the 2024-2025 Academic Year. Current contract types for 2023-2024 remain in effect until their specified end date.)

Base Agreement

This agreement is binding and enforceable for the entire academic year (both Fall and Spring semesters). This agreement will remain in force for the duration of residency and includes financial responsibility for the entire agreement period. The agreement remains binding after the Fall semester unless the student is on an approved leave or official withdrawal from the University. Failure to pick up a key(s) and/or check-in does not release a student from the agreement. Agreement start date and move in date will be determined by university-sanctioned requirements (example: orientation, athletic, course start dates). Generally, a student’s move-in day will be the day before these activities start, as provided to the Housing and Residential Education office by the sponsor of your program. 

Break periods – For the periods that courses are not in session (Thanksgiving, Winter/Intersession, Spring Breaks), residents with an active agreement may remain in housing as needed, with no additional charge. The following should be kept in mind for these periods: 

  • Students must indicate their intention to remain in housing so that we may facilitate proper card access and be aware in case of emergency where residents are located.  
  • Staffing levels may be adjusted during these times, based on expected reduced occupancy. 
  • Meal service may be limited or unavailable during these periods.  
  • Transportation services may be limited or unavailable during these periods. 

Base Plus Agreement

This agreement encompasses the Base Agreement (as defined above), plus the summer timeframe. In case a student does not have an agreement in place for the upcoming academic year, this agreement ends no later than July 31st each year. Students who have an agreement in place for the upcoming academic year, this agreement extends until the start of that agreement. Please remember, summer housing is consolidated to minimal campus areas, and students may be required to relocate for this period for the university to facilitate summer operations. The dates for these moves to and from summer housing assignments will be communicated by the Housing and Residential Education office. Services for the summer period generally follow the structure of breaks as defined above. 

**Please note: The rates above reflect the charge for the Base Agreement. Charges for the summer timeframe are billed separately, and in addition to the rates detailed above.**
