Recontracting For Current Students 

Recontracting is the process by which returning residential graduate students secure on campus housing for the upcoming academic year. All current residential graduate students will need to submit a contract between March 1-March 15 in order to guarantee a space in graduate housing for the following year. 

During this process, current residents will be able to recontract for their current apartment or request a change to a different apartment. Additionally, during recontracting, current residents will be able to sign a Summer 2024 contract if they will be on campus and enrolled in classes. 

 

Current residents who will not be here in Summer 2024 but are seeking a late stay to extend their contract until June 30, 2024 will complete a Late Stay Request in May.
