Move-in/Move-out Dates

The Graduate & Family Housing lease expires every July 31. It is renewable on that date as long as the resident provides proof of full-time university affiliation for the upcoming fall semester. Faculty, staff and all other non-students are eligible to live in Graduate & Family Housing for up to two calendar years.

The best part: residents can move out of Graduate & Family Housing at any time, provided 30-days notice is given. Graduate & Family Housing charges 30 days rent from the day residents submit the required Intent to Vacate form filled out at the Graduate & Family Housing Office.


Contact your resident manager within two weeks of signing your lease to schedule a walk-through. Your resident manager will come to your apartment to complete the check-in form with you and review the condition of your apartment. Damage such as nail holes, chipped tiles, burned countertops, or worn and discolored carpet areas should be noted on the form. Dripping faucets, closet doors off the track, torn window screens, and other items should also be noted so you can request repair service on them.

It is to your advantage to be as thorough as possible during your check-in. Any problems that exist when you move into your apartment, and are not repaired while you live in the apartment, are not considered your responsibility. You will not be charged for such items when you move out.
