  • Lease Turnover / Lease Turnover Acceptance Forms are available, according to the open/close dates on the Important Dates calendar, on Self-Service

Lease Turnover Process

  • Lease Turnovers are for campus apartments, including, Station, Park Place, Oaks, Danieley Apartments, and Crest Apartments.
  • What is a lease turnover?
    • This process is only applicable DURING a lease year (June-May) and does NOT apply during the transition from spring to summer when we do Housing Selection processes to assign apartments for the upcoming lease year. More information about academic year to academic year lease processes can be found on our Housing Selection website.
    • If a student remains enrolled at the university and wishes to move out of their on-campus apartment space, and give up their on-campus housing/lease, they must complete a Lease Turnover. This means, you will turn over occupancy and rights to the apartment to another student. Students CANNOT move from one apartment to another apartment between terms.
    • Who is eligible to accept a lease turnover? Students who do NOT currently have campus housing assigned (i.e. are living off-campus, returning from abroad/leave, etc.) are eligible to accept a lease turnover ONLY during specified application windows. Please see the Important Dates Calendar.
    • Students who are leaving their apartment to study away, engage in internships, or move off campus during fall or spring must find a replacement and complete a lease turnover form. Students who are leaving the university due to transferring, withdrawing, or graduating are not required to do a lease turnover.
    • A lease turnover form is not a sublease process. When a lease turnover form is completed and approved by the University the student turning over the lease is relinquishing full control and any rights related to being a resident of that space as well as the ability to re-sign the lease for that space in the future through the housing selection process.
  • When can lease turnovers occur? 
    • Students can turn their lease over to a new student during the following time periods:
      1. Summer and Fall: Early June through late December.
      2. Winter and Spring: December through May
      3. Spring: January through May
      4. NOTE: Specific dates for lease turnover/acceptance applications and apartment move in and move out dates found on our Important Dates list. Again, students CANNOT move from one on-campus apartment  to another on-campus apartment between terms.
  • How do I turnover a lease?
    • The forms needed for this process can be found on your Self-Service page.
    • The student who is leaving the University will complete the Housing Cancellation form. Within the form their will be a Lease Turnover Question on who they want to turn the lease over too. Please note: a lease cannot be turned over to someone currently living within University Housing. The accepting student must be qualified to live in that building (i.e. Juniors/Seniors only in Park Place and Station).
    • Students who are currently not living within University Housing and wish to take over a lease will complete the Housing Application. Within the application will be a set of questions for students who want to takeover a lease from a student moving off campus.
