While living on campus you will have a housing contract that defines important aspects of what it means to be a student living in university residences. From billing details to behavioral expectations, your housing contract is an important document that you should be familiar with, as well as the documents incorporated by reference: the Residential Handbook and the Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct. Many questions can be answered between these documents and there is important information in each of these to help you navigate life on campus successfully.
Academic Year 2020-21 Only: Students living on campus must complete a contract addendum in order to be eligible to move in. The 2020-21 housing contract, addendum, process information, and addendum frequently asked questions are detailed below.

General Addendum Questions
An addendum is necessary to ensure you are aware of the changes implemented over the last few months that impact the 2020-21 academic year. Revised policies, billing information, and updates to the academic calendar impact the role of housing in supporting your academic experience and we want to be sure you are informed about these changes.
The addendum does not change your housing assignment, however it does change or expand some of the terms of your housing contract. Please be sure to review the addendum closely.
If you do not have a housing contract you are not eligible to complete the Addendum. You will receive instructions on completing the Addendum within two business days of submitting the first part of the housing contract process.
Your housing contract and addendum include fall in person and spring in person sessions. There will be a request process to remain on campus during the online learning sessions which will open in September.
Students living on campus during the fall in person session have a contract that includes both fall and spring so a new contract is not needed.
No, if you are only living on campus for the fall and spring in person sessions, you can leave items in your room that you don't need with you during the online learning session. During the online learning session you will not have access to return to your room until the spring in person session.
The addendum addresses important changes that you need to be aware of so the addendum is not optional to complete if you want to live on campus. Please be sure to review the addendum information carefully and complete that process. Students who have not completed the addendum will not be allowed to move in.
