Contract Petition for Release Forms

If a student wants to live off campus, and does not meet one of the Freshmen live-in requirements to live off campus, they need to print out a Petition for Release form.

The Petition for Release form needs to be filled out by the student, a letter written to the Housing & Residential Education Office explaining his or her situation, and the required back up documentation provided to the Housing & Residential Education Office.

The completed Petition for Release form, the letter, and the backup documentation need to be brought to the Housing & Residential Education Office in Tobey-Kendel Hall, Room 199. Once all of this information has been brought to the office and turned in, a decision on whether or not the student can be released from their housing contract will be determined. Generally, it takes about a week for the information to be evaluated by the Housing & Residential Education committee.
