Contract Termination- Undergraduate Students
As detailed in section 10 of the Undergraduate Housing License Agreement, you will be released from the academic year rent commitment only under the following circumstances (does NOT apply if you are evicted from campus housing for conduct-related reasons):
- You move out of campus housing and withdraw from and discontinue enrollment as a student at the University of Arizona (and do not re-enroll at any time during the remainder of that academic year). Under these circumstances, you will be responsible for rent charges based on the dates of your occupancy plus a License Agreement release fee as described in section 10 of the License Agreement.
- You move out of campus housing at the end of the fall semester to participate in a University-approved internship, study abroad or student exchange program that will 1) require you to reside outside the Tucson metropolitan area during the spring semester, or 2) result in you not being enrolled in spring semester classes at the University. Under these circumstances, you will need to provide the Housing Assignment Services office with a copy of official documentation showing your participation in such a program before the end of the fall semester and you will be responsible for fall semester charges only. No License Agreement release fee will be charged.
- You graduate from the University of Arizona and move out of campus housing at the end of the fall semester. Under this circumstance, you will be responsible for fall semester charges only. No License Agreement release fee will be charged.
Contract Termination for Extraordinary Reasons
In rare cases after moving into campus housing, a student encounters an extreme, unforeseeable and uncontrollable problem that interferes with her/his ability to continue living in campus housing and for which Residence Life is not able to provide a reasonable solution/alternative within campus housing facilities. The nature of these problems is typically medical, psychological and/or financial.
Residence Life provides a Housing Contract Appeals process for students facing such problems. The Housing Contract Appeals Committee, made up primarily of faculty and staff from outside Residence Life, reviews written appeals for release from the terms of the License Agreement. A housing contract appeal is your LAST RESORT to solve a problem. Contract appeals will be considered ONLY after you have sought assistance from your Community Director in resolving the problem, and all other, less extreme options have been exhausted – including transferring to a different room, room type, residence hall or apartment.
If you wish to submit an appeal, please see your Community Director to discuss the problem and to obtain required forms and instructions.
