Length of Occupancy

Apartments are normally rented for the academic year, with the option of continuing in the summer. However, tenants may move out between semesters, as long as proper notice is given. Students are expected to vacate their apartments at the end of the semester they graduate. Tenant occupancy begins approximately one week before classes begin and ends the day after Commencement. Requests to move in earlier may be noted on the application, but cannot always be granted.

Campus housing is guaranteed for no more than two years.
