contract options

Arcadia Flats and Western View

  • 10.5-month contract beginning in late August

Residents sign an individual per-bedroom contract, which means that each roommate is financially responsible for his/her own portion of the rent. If a roommate transfers or moves out, it will not affect your apartment contract. Each resident is responsible for their portion of the utilities. See the 2018-19 contract.

Goldsworth Valley and Stadium Drive

  • Summer (sessions I and II) – 4 month contract
  • Academic year (fall and spring) – 8 month contract
  • Spring only contract based on availability

Students with an academic year lease who do not return spring semester due to graduation, student teaching, studying abroad or leaving the university are not financially responsible for spring semester.  

Assignments

When you sign up for a campus apartment, you will be able to see all available spaces to choose your own bedroom and apartment.  Click on the building you want and your preferred floor, and then see where there is an open bed.  Apartments will be designated as male, female or coed.  Once you choose a bedroom and apartment and e-sign your contract, you will not be able to change your assignment. 

Roommates

If you have a roommate(s) you want to live with, create a Roommate Group in the housing portal. You will need each roommate's name and WIN. When you go in to choose an apartment, you will see open units where your group fills an apartment. Only one person in the Roommate Group needs to sign up for the apartment. All other roommates will get an email to enter the housing portal to confirm the unit and sign their contract. They will have a week to complete their contract or the space is released to another student.

For students without a roommate request, they can view roommate profile information when they are searching for a unit. Occupied beds will have an "X" over them. Mouse over the "X" to see gender, age, academic major and their answers to lifestyle and interest questions.
