The Housing and Residence Life contract for all halls is a legally binding contract for the entire academic year of fall and spring semesters. The contract financially obligates a resident to the end of the contract period which for most students is the end of spring semester. A contract buy-out option is available to eligible students who wish to cancel their contracts during the academic year.
Students are reminded that the university accepts no responsibility for items which are lost or damaged in the residence halls, regardless of reason. Each student is encouraged to carry personal property insurance or check to be certain that personal property is covered under the parents' insurance policy.
Residence halls (except for Tyus Hall, Arbor View, and University Suites) are closed between semesters and during Thanksgiving and Spring breaks.
